Been quite a surreal few days and very close to home. The Mrs has been coming home from work in tears as she works with people who were there at the time picking their kids up and describing the horrific scenes that I need not go into detail about here. We have friends who work in the health sector who have been dealing with the aftermath. You dry your eyes and think of the brilliant people out there looking after us. We both visit different sites with work and every time we see a newsflash of an armed raid nearby or see a police heli overhead (which has been most of this week) weíve been on the phone to check on each other. As we both work based a couple of miles from this avoiding it is impossible, so we have to get on with it. Went out to Media City for lunch with a bunch from work and usually busy areas are empty. Police in body armour and sub machine guns walking amongst us keeping an eye out for us all. The effect has been massive and people are scared without doubt, but like any wound it will heal. There will always be a scar but we will heal. Weíve been doing it for 1000ís of years.
I appreciate that Sugden BB forum is now pretty much global, but donít forget that it was formed by a group of Uni students a decade ago in city centre Manchester. For one thread at least donít give the s**thouse wank stain terrorists and political wranglers the platform that they so desperately crave. Letís honour the lost and wounded, and the countless people behind the scenes who look after us when the s**t hits the fan.

I asked this on FB quite recently as that's a match I'd be interested in seeing and I'm thinking it's pretty inevitable, but neither came back to me. Come to think of it no one came back to me so I may have just thought I posted it.

Was chatting to Tom at a function last year and he was talking of having a good go at the all time best, but this was before the 500. Also, that he didn't fancy going much above 120k, but he seems to be carrying 110 very well so who knows.

Another thing that I've seen recently was an alleged interview with Clarence Kennedy who is looking to move over to PL from WL. Currently @ 100k with an 800+ whilst concentrating on OL, and could well end up in the same Fed (internationally at least) as Tom and Del. Interesting times in the PL world.

Thanks Sam. I'd heard that. Let me know how you go on when you go native.

Up to now I've got easyjet flights listed as £100 return, and an apartment for us all via airbnb @ around £300 each for a week. Not too pricey so far, but we have to live once we're there so it all hangs on that. You planning on a trip to the Blue Lagoon at all? Is transport ok?

What are the prices like Sam? I'm toying with a trip to Reykjavik later this year.

Just to clarify, are we talking Trenbolone or Toblerone?

I actually got trombone from that post, which is further away than both yours.

A errm mate of mine bought a bike for his wife on click and collect from Halfords yesterday. New bike, checked online and it's in store (albeit a store that's a fair bit out of the way), called to confirm it's in store an hour before setting off, and it's in store. An hour across rush hour traffic gets there and the bike isn't in store. After inevitable kick off the manager discovers the bike. It's a demo model. My mate being a reasonable sole gives them the benefit of doubt and has a quick look at said bike. After noticing a clear crack in the carbon forks (below) decides that this 'new bike' is neither new or a fit for purpose bike. Without a hint of suggesting an alternative model or any further customer service refund purchase price of said bike and apologise for the trouble. Halfords can well and truely kiss my mates arse.

slimsim said:That right there has CROSSFIT written all over it!! Wink
Crossfit was Crossfit way before Crossfit. There's very little new in this game IMO.
I've started running again. Nothing to dramatic, I don't really want to go over 4-5 miles maximum but there's a lot to be said about being strong AND fit. I find it really empowering.
Good on you mate. It's a hard trick to balance them both. I've found both responded well when I trained them individually, but always at the expense of the other. That said I get fed up of one kind of training quite quickly nowadays, which is ok as long as I go off and do something else. It does feel good though. As someone who's chased many a high from many a source feeling like I do now is up there.

Not really Andy. I have plenty of things that I'd like to do, but if I didn't before that last trip to hospital it wouldn't press me too much. More about the journey than the destination.
Im still looking for to my life goal of entering Kelly Brook...Every hole as well Grin

Not really a KB fan tbh. I'd give her one again for a laugh like, but that's about it.

I know it's only mid November, but I'm going to call these now as I can't see them changing. Priorities change and it was mixed bag of doing some of them, narrowly missing others and finding the rest unimportant. I did a lot of things that I didn't set out to do.
2016 GOALZ
C&J 300lb - 30 years after I first did it DONE - 26/06/2016
Snatch 100k EMOM x 10 DONE - 06/06/2016
C&J 120 EMOM x 10 NOT DONE. I fell out of love with lifting before having a good go.
Press Bwt x 5 NOT DONE Think I got up to 4 reps a couple of times. I kept putting weight on.
B Sqt 2xBwt x 5 DONE - 22/06/2016 182.5 x 5 @89k bwt
DL 2xBwt x 10 NOT DONE Think I got up to 5, but again put weight on before trying 10's putting it further away
F Sqt 2xBwt x 1 NOT DONE Did 160 @ about 86-87k
Run 5k under 30 mins DONE - 29.50 16/01/2016 Warrington parkrun
Run 10k under 60 mins DONE - 59:18 14/08/2016
Lagans sportiff under 3:30 - did this last year in 3:49 DONE - 3:18:20 24/04/2016
Manchester to Blackpool under 4 hours FAILED - 04:00:33
Do 50 Parkruns and get the 50 Parkruns TShirt - currently on 11 DONE - 29/10/2016
Get under 15% BF NO IDEA Became pretty irrelevant. Kudos to bodybuilders for doing what they have to. I opted for feeling better than looking it.

The aim was to get a good spread of fitness across all the principles and honestly I think I have. Better still I've enjoyed this year. A lot. It will probably be the model for many more.

Thanks lads. The sub 30 was a much needed boost. Back to it now. Busy making plans to keep busy. 49 more to go to get my 100 T-Shirt.

10k 01:02:30 Last training run before the Run in the Dark on Wednesday night. 15 secs a k to find for a sub 60.

Been a bit of a s**t time recently so this stuff has suffered a bit. Of late no boxing, weights, cycling and a couple of short runs only. Even missed last weeks park run. Been too good a year to carry on like this, so back to it.

Warrington Parkrun - 29:56 First time in my 50 T-Shirt, plus sported my winter running bottoms and thermal skull cap too that I bought to cheer myself up. It seemed to work.
