Burger Watch 2

Forgive the rubbish picture… snapped in hurry. So, second time succumbing to the delights of a burger. This time by Fry’s. Now. In summary. If you like those really cheap burgers with sawdust for filler, you will like these. Very little flavour, not a huge amount of bite and a little too spongy in the […]

Powered by… Flu

Well the week started terribly. Full blown cold (man flu). Meant no training on Tuesday as I had planned.  The week clearly then started on Wednesday for a gym brick session.

A flying start (for me)

With the event selected at Bydgoszcz set out for the 19th August 2018. It’s now time to build out the training plan and start doing stuff. After a couple of different recommendations I went for Don Fink’s “Be Ironfit” (Be Iron fit: Time-Efficient Training Secrets for Ultimate Fitness). I’ve decided to put the training in […]
