Rough towards the end. Much ‘stopping for breath’ in the final 10-20, where ‘breath’ = spew burps.

And then a little tennis with Claire :)

Since last time I’ve managed to shake the bugs, wrap up a bunch of work and have a new baby.

Mae’s birth reminds me that the fittest I’ve probably ever been was back when Claire was born. Not only that, but Fee reminded me today that Mae will be 10 weeks old when we go down to Lorne to race take part in Amy’s Gran Fondo. Who needs sleep? Better get moving!

…aiming to build to 50.


I’ve had this idea for a while that one legged KB snatches would be a great stability move. I had a few unsuccessful attempts tonight but I think it can be pulled off. The snatching hand just has to be opposite the standing foot or else you would bash yourself in the supporting knee with the bell on the down stroke. No really, trust me on this.

Move wet sand from beside the house to Claire’s sand pit:
Shovel wet sand x lots

I think I’ll get in this end. Oh, it’s a little deep! Do you have anything shallower? No? Just this here deep end? Ok then, sure. Why not? I mean, what’s the worst that could happen – get to rep 8 and realise that you’re going to be all kinds of torn up tomorrow? Ha!

The overhead lunging component was much better than I expected. First 5 reps had the renegade rows on the horns, but in the interest of safety I settled for planting my hand on the top of the ball of the bell.
