, the Frome Literary Festival failed to recognise my literary genius in their short story competition. Bunch of c**ts - what do they know, anyway?

Cliff,you do realise that any literary genius worth his salt will be unappreciated in his own time. Leave me the rights to your masterpiece, you know it makes senseGrin

Rick - the last time I took the car out (with two of the czech guys in it) I floored the accelerator,which I never normally do. It was just astonishing, the acceleration was gut-wrenching. If I hadn't have been full of manly testosterone,I would have wept when it went.

Ed - we aim to please. I hate most hip-hop (I suppose that's what it is, I don't really care what it's called) with a passion. People criticise X-Factor entrants for being talentless, but some of those hip hop guys are in a different league.

Nico - that's right. They laughed at Proust,they laughed at Tolstoy, they laughed at Jordan. No,hang on... Anyway,you can have 10% of the proceeds of my literary heritage for being kind,on the understanding that 10% of f**k all is also f**k all.

Sadly not. I would love to, but it's such a waste of money. It's going off the mortgage.

Tuesday


I got a message from the guys who bought the Supra to say that they had taken it up to 330 km/h. That's over 200mph Eek .They were probably going off the speedo,which might over-read a fair bit, but even allowing for that, it's scary fast.

Anyway, decided to do some cardio yesterday, as I'm going walking in the Pyrenees in less than two weeks. I did some walking, carrying little dumbells in my fatgripz.I'm hoping that's the reason that my grip was absolutely s**t today. Nothing felt secure,and I couldn't manage more than 220 for a double.

CG bench was pleasing, though. 110 X 10 felt comfortable.

Thanks guys.

A lacklustre session today. Tried beltless squatting for a change - quite a different experience.

I also had the following experience with the guy managing the gym:

[We move over to olympic bar, 150K, sitting on rack on bench press bench]

Me: If you could give me a hand off with the bar...

Him: Bench press?

Me: Yes. So just a hand of with the bar, then don't touch it. Don't touch it at all. Then give me a hand racking it at the end. Thanks.

Him: You don't want me to give you a hand? If you're struggling.

Me: No,don't touch it. Keep clear unless I'm absolutely stuck.

Him: Right.

What then happens is that: (a) he lifts about 2 kg on the hand off (b) he is afflicted with hovering hands during reps 1-3. (c) on rep 4, which is just about going up slowly, he cannot help himself, and lifts about 5kg to let me complete the rep.

I mean, one shouldn;t be ungrateful, but it's a frustrating process sometimes.

Beltless squats

70 X 5
70 X 5
120 X 3
150 X 2
180 X 2
180 X 2
180 X 2
180 X 2

Bench Press

150 X 3.75
150 X 2
[Gave up and did speed bench]

Paused speed bench - all reps paused

120 X 3
120 X 3
120 X 3
120 X 3
120 X 3

Oh, I've also done two days of cardio (walking while carrying fatgripz wrapped dumbells) in preparation for my walking holiday next week.
