Friday 11th January 2019.

It's been a while!
So after X-Rays, blood tests and consultations i'm told my wrist problem is caused by Osteoarthritis. The consultant tells me that there will be bad days and not so bad days but that it will never get any better! Consequently my competitive days are probably over. Withdrew from the British team for the Euro Masters. Fcuk it.

I've not trained much since the British in October due to work & holidays and pain, first night back at the Farm since mid December.
Weighed in at a fat and definitely unfit 121.35kg.

Squat.
2 x 5 x 20
5 x 60
4 x 80
3 x 100
2 x 120
2 x 125
2 x 130

2 x 120
All felt heavy.

2 x 5 x 40

5 x 60
