    Saturday
    No training but my calves are sore as f**k today (Sunday). I set off for some cross country walking with 'er indoors but she lost me in the mist (I was 1900+ feet up and we had poor visibility). She went back to the car and I carried on and on and on. Instead of going back to where I started from I carried on for miles on rough terrain. Hence knackered calves lol

    Sunday
    I was that tired after the trek there was no damned way I was training anything so I'll try and do both today. The a.m. workout is:

    Pickaxe / leverage
    Up to 1-kilo over set up
    LH: 3 x 40 seconds. As before set 3 I could feel the hand starting to open
    RH: 3 x 50 seconds. If I distract myself then it's only the last ten seconds that cause me discomfort

    Saturday
    Pickaxe / leverage
    I switched from a numerical style stopwatch to a clock style. Watching the sweeping hand seemed to help.
    Up to 1.25-kilo over set up
    LH: 3 x 40 seconds. As before set 3 I could feel the hand starting to open
    RH: 3 x 50 seconds. If I distract myself then it's only the last ten seconds that cause me discomfort I had to re-do set No 3 as I managed 20 seconds and it started to wobble and wander.

    Tricep Pressdowns
    to 16.5-kilos x 8 reps

    All supersetted and brutal as f**k

    Stub work
    I had to restart this as I couldn't pull sh*t. I found that rather than set up if I pulled straight away I got the reps. I also changed from using multiple small plates to using bigger plates. It'll be nice to work to a 20-kilo / 44lbs plate
    LH: set up +13.75-kilos x 5 x 1 reps
    RH: set up +16.25-kilos x 4 x 1 reps

    Sunday
    No training Saturday but we went out and did some hill walking (above Heol Senni). Once home and relaxing I had my first experience of actually feeling an earthquake! We had a 4.4 on the richter scale (7.4km down and 20km NNE of Swansea). We thought someone had hit the building and went around checking that nothing had collapsed. One ceiling tile had fallen. Only later did we realize what it was.

    AM workout / Pick axe work
    Fkin painful as fkin per.
    Now with 1.5-kilos added to the axe
    LH: 3 x 40-seconds
    RH: 3 x 50-seconds
