Very cold tonight, and very quiet, hip and back still not right, physio a week tomorrow so that will be top of the list, meanwhile let's see how it goes

Squat, tracky bottoms, sleeves, squat boots and t shirt x 2
20 x 5
20 x 5

105 x 3
115 x 3
125 x 3
135 x 3
145 x 1
105 x 3
105 x 3
105 x 3
Didn't like the 145 at all, no point risking anything, so drop it, three threes and call it a night.
We have two pairs of twenty kilo weights at Adders, two of which are 2.5 kilos heavy, and the others are 2.5 kilos light, I always use these together, as together on a twenty kilo bar they weigh hundred kilos and then you are off and running. So I always put the heavy pair on first, then the light pair and then I start to use the correctly weighted pairs. Although everyone has been told about this more times than I care to remember, very few remember and a few claim to never have been told. Anyhoo, Ian Mac snaffled the light pair after I had already put the heavy pair on. This gentle reader is why all the weights end in a "5" tonight.

That's brilliant. It reminds me of Handsome Fred and his two forks.


Three forks.
Three complete and separate dinners and then that most wonderful of lines -

"and three forks so they wouldn't think they were all for me"

I miss Fred

Does this happen to you?
I have excellent hearing people mumble and I have to dig out what is audible. Speak up peep hole I canít heard ya!


It does Billy, it does, but I am unable to recall any of them.
The was one while walking down the street in Colne, me, DrRick and Jabba. For the life of me I cannot remember it. Hopefully DrRick will, his brain is considerably larger than mine. It was something to do with how best to frighten a horse.

Our conversation can be quite varied at times.

Billytheold said:Nerve Wracking or racking? I think both will do? What do you use?


I would have gone "wrack" but I was very unsure. So I have checked with the splendid "Brewer's Dictionary of phrase and fable" They say "Rack" and have no entry for "wrack", however Google tells me that "Rack " is the original but "wrack" has become an acceptable alternative. I see no reason to dispute any of that. I would probably stick with "Wrack"

Did you order both mains upfront, or did you finish and think, "I'll have some more of that!"?


Up front. That was always the intention. He did ask if I required two plates but I said I wasn't bothered, "feel free to pile it all on one" I told him, "whatevers easiest for you".
It arrived all on the one plate

Got home from reffing at 7 yesterday evening, made a cup of tea and had half an hour on the web, went for a shower and sat down at 8 to watch "His dark materials" on BBC, woke up at 11 :15 and "match of the day" was on, made a cup of tea and sat down to watch the remainder of it. Woke up at 1, with a still full, cold cup of tea by the side of me. Went to bed, This reffing lark must be harder than it looks. So with that in mind

Last one paused on all sets of five, a a hundred was enough for tonight. Very quiet tonight, just me an ju-jitsu guy and then later Handsome Jeff and Ian rolled in. Not busy at all.

In my defence, one of mine was as a starter.


I don't consider a defence necessary. I was hungry and it was delicious. Nothing was left on any plate. The defence rests.

What weird and wonderful conversations/banter/bo***cks went on?


He seemed happy that I considered my last visit there to have been the best steak and chips that I had ever had, (it was my first Hawksmoor S & C) and even happier when I also told him that it was better than all previous steak and chips put together. His happiness level ramped up still further when he observed my waistline, it was this observation that convinced him to accept my assurance that I spoke with authority on this matter.

I do like to make people happy

A pleasure as always. Sorry I didn't see as much of your lifting as I should have liked to. The fact that you are still out there inspires me. I cannot promise to act on that inspiration, but I am inspired.

Spent the day in the referee's chair, well some of it, schlepped through Manchester with the good doctor for a delightful steak served by a splendid waiter who surely can't often get two stranger or more eccentric customers than the good doctor and myself. He took us in his stride and added to the occasion. Talented lad that.

Another day off today, quite a bit warmer than of late. Quite a busy day to be honest, with another on tomorrow and reffing on Sunday. Fell asleep earlier than usual this evening, causing this very late entry. Hopefully tomorrow will have an higher level of consciousness.

Another very cold day, the back and the hip are still not tip top so we will replicate the last deadlift session and see how far we get.

Deadlift, very raw, slippers on, no belt

Note to self, put knee sleeves on in future. It took a while to get warm tonight, but by the time I had got to 100 I wasn't too bad, the hip ached in the start position but stopped as soon as I started to move. 180 was enough though, I could have gone higher but it would have been most unwise.

After last week's physio the hip is much better but the rear ribs are still sore and lying on them is not much fun. No heroics tonight then.

Bench, very raw

None of these were difficult which was rather the point, very creaky in the back when up off and back onto the bench but it didn't hurt too much, let's hope another week sorts it.

Very cold tonight. Really, very cold

Mark the whole weekend in your diary as "no retail", is my advice. I have friends visiting today and we would often consider going for Chinese at Middlebrook. Not today though.



It is already done. I can't fault your logic on the Middlebrook either
