Strength stuff was 2xOHP, 2x Push Press, 2x Jerk. Adding more weight each round until you can’t do more. I maxed out at 2x 75 kg jerks.
Then 5 rounds of the following:
8 x power clean @ 60kg (40 for the girls)
8 x squat jumps over the barbell
My major take away is that running is shite. Even 400m.
So, with the new house I’m a little too far from my old gym. Solution, try out the CrossFit box that we have here.
First session there is tonight.
I just saved a guy in a runaway electric wheelchair. My life is odd.

Progress report: I have now signed a contract for a house.
Alert level: Brown
Oh crap I hope this goes ok. This will be the most expensive thing I’ve ever bought by quite a long way.

Just had an e-mail from the Spartan Race people to tell me there’s only 300 places left on this Spartan Beast in November.
Time is running out if I want to do it, but with house buying and busy work I’m just not in a place to say yes 100%.
Dilemma. I must decide tomorrow.
Ok, so I got the Cambridge Spartan out of the way and now people are hassling me to do the London Spartan Beast in November…
Oh so tempted.
