    Oh crap! If Alex is taking you under his wing, prepare to be a beast. That type of cross training, power and super cardio, really impresses me. Good stuff mate.

    Awesome news, look forward to seeing it happen. I wanted to do a Sprint triathlon last year but couldn't learn how to swim. I mean, I can swim, but my laps are just me thrashing about gasping for air lol. Didn't want it bad enough to find a teacher and just gave that up. I would love to run 5 and 10k races though.

    Thanks Bako! Yeah, swimming's my achilles too. Gonna have to get a handle on it.

    Sprint is my first goal too - there's one in September, followed by a Powerlifting meet in Oct. Could be a busy Fall for me lol.

    Strong tricep work there. You use a rope or a bar on that movement?

    Cheers Hayden! Tri is sept 16th, I think. It's a 400m swim, 12mile bike then a 3mile run. Pretty sure I could do the second two, just the swim that worries me.

    Thanks Tom! I use a bar, similar to this:

    Crap Deadlift Day

    Deadlifts:

    10x40(88)
    5x60(132)
    5x80(176)
    3x100(220)
    3x120(265)
    3x140(308)
    1x160(352)
    0x182.5(400)


    Barbell Rows:

    10x60(132)
    5x80(176)
    3x100(220)PR


    ----------
    Summary:

    What a shit day. Couldn't even budge 4pps off the floor. The 160kg was a planned triple, but first rep was exhausting.

    Gonna blame it on the heat.

    Or maybe my body getting used to the cardio.

    Or not sleeping.

    Or stress from sending my book off to the agencies.

    Or one of many other things.

    Either way, went and got myself a row PR out of pure rage.

    Gonna go and do a 1mile run now, if my chafed-to-fuck legs will allow. Hopefully some loose shorts and some Bodyglide and I'll be okay.

    We'll see.

    Will do, Jay!

    On the plus side, just went out for my run:

    1 mile in 10mins 58secs.

    Pretty pleased with it, considering the crap workout this morning. Especially pleased that I didn't have to stop to catch my breath or have a drink even once!

    Thanks Coke! I'm sure when my body gets used to the cardio then my lifts'll get better too.

    Road bike, 10 miles, 44mins 44secs. Avg 13mph. Alex had set me a target of 45mins, so beat it by 16secs, lol.

    Three stints, 4 miles slow, 2 miles fast, 4 miles slow; didn't quite work out like that though... Soon as I got to the 4 mile point it was all uphill, lol!

    Managed to get a new downhill record though, 32.5mph haha.

    That is nice man. Good deal on the overheads and all as well, it's quite serious when you go out of your way to not skip a session, lol.

    Thanks, Coke! Always feel bad when skipping OH day; just something about training on Sundays makes me not want to go in, lol.

    Cheers bud, Alex warned me that it'll be tough at first but that I'll get used to it in time.

    And yeah, mate. Finished my novel, sent submissions off to seven agencies last week, so hopefully will hear something back.
