Yer my head was pretty close to the gates. Think I have it a little bump but my heads pretty hard so no worries there :joy:


#1403

Woke at 86.8kg, bad sleep last night and didn’t drink much water yesterday. Going to have to rehydrate through today before training tonight.


#1404

Mine hurts a bit but only at the ends of the ranges of motion.


#1405

Damn Simo I sad here and just said ouch and felt that must have hurt.
Really hope it’s nothing serious.

Btw were exactly the same body weight within 100 gram yesterday I was 86,8 today 86,9.


#1406

It’s all good, at the time it doesn’t really hurt as it happens too quick. I hurts a bit after but it’s nearly back to normal today

Deads and squats moved ok today. Shoulders were very sore today, no idea why, must be the weight of the world that I’m carrying on them :frowning:
Really wasn’t feeling it tonight, had no focus and for the first time in a long time was questioning what I was doing. My little boy (5) has been sick all week and keeping me and the bread knife awake all night with his coughing. I am hoping my lack of focus is just cause I’m tired.

On a more positive note, quads looking beefy today.


#1408

Someone astute once said lack of sleep will make cowards of us all. I hope your son heals up quickly, as well as your ankle.

And why the heck is coughing keeping the bread knofe awake? I don’t know they slept, tbh :stuck_out_tongue:


#1409

You could be right, any time I wake at night she is always awake. Maybe that’s why women get more done, they never sleep !!!


#1410

Ooooooh, “bread knife” is referring to your wife. A dim bulb (me) just brightened.


#1411

You saved me the question TnT :slight_smile:
Mine is more like a razor… you don’t want to wake it, that’s trouble.

@simo74 hope your son gets over it soon, I hate it when the little ones are sick.
Stay focused and sharp, those quads seems to have grown some.


#1412

Thanks @mortdk hopefully he will recover quickly. I am feeling like I’m getting a cold today, maybe that why I was a bit off of training tonight. Anyway enough moaning from me. Have a good weekend my friend and keep eating. :joy:


#1413

Maybe that’s an Australian term of endearment :smiley: If your wife is like a razor, I reckon you make sure to stay on her softer side. Lol


#1414

My whole house is sick right now. My daughter (five years old) and wife caught what my son and I have had for over a week. I took a risk and gave my daughter some Nyquil because she was coughing bad two nights ago. The regular dose is 30ml but I only gave her 10. It worked. The label says to ask a doctor for that age but I figured a little wouldn’t kill her. I was right and it helped all of us.

I’ve also never heard anyone use a knife reference about the wife. That’s definitely not a US thing.


#1415

Not suprised you haven’t heard that reference I would t exactly call it international!! Funny you should say about the whole house being sick. All three of my dustbin lids were coughing last night and I too am coming down with something. :rage:


#1416

The slang down there is borderline poetic


#1417

Simo it will be nothing short of a miracle if all the little tackers and the handbrake are crook, spreading their lurgies all round the house. Best you be sleeping Ina swag out the back mate.


#1418

Sorry Simon… But fuck that was funny xD
I hope the damage is not too bad though!


#1419

All good me old china. Every one at work had a good old giggle too. Damn CCTV!!!

Who’s Simon. Lol


#1420

Autocorrect. You’ll see a lot of things in my posts that will make you think I can’t speak or write English, which tells you that I used my phone to submit those posts. Seemingly names are affected as well, haha.


#1421

All good I figured either auto correct or just fat finger syndrome!
