Another day, another imbalance.

You’d think that after being my only useable lower limb for 6 months my left leg would be stronger, nope.  Despite being broken, nailed back together and unused for almost 3 months my right leg is still stronger than my left.  Goes to show just how long it takes to develop true strength, not this swole bollocks I keep seeing.

There’s also the proprioception*, I’m still struggling to figure out where my right foot is, out of sight, out of mind as they say.

And it’s too f**kin hot, I’m Northern and have a lower melt point than butter.

Whinge over

For now

Perhaps

*Yes, I had to Google it too.

No bike or bells today, just grip, grip and more grip.

Not used the hooks for a while and it shows. 

Note to self, you’re an obstacle racer, so don’t forget the basics.

Yep, Racked Snatches, titter amongst yourselves.

No outdoor play today, too wet and no one wants rusty bells.  So here’s one from the vault, catch and release with the 20kg lump.

Many moons ago, when I had a gym membership, two working legs and the world had not been overrun with zombies, number one son and I came up with the concept of ten tonne Tuesday. 

100 Kg Deadlift, 10 Reps, 10 Sets

As the leg is feeling more stable I thought I’d have a go but with the deadlifts thrown into a HIIT circuit.  Not my best idea.

2 Minutes Bike
1 Minute Kettlebell Flow (20 Kg or 2 x 16 Kg)
15 Box Jumps
10 Deadlifts
16 Tyre Hammer Twattings
10 Gym Ring Inversions

Repeat x 10

Tomorrow will be Waddle Wednesday as I struggle to walk.

Alfresco bells today, because the weather is nice and when I get these wrong I’m only going to dent the lawn.

No idea why I was pledging allegiance every other swing, but it’s better than my usual teapot pose.

Oddly enough rope climbs are my most “feared” obstacle, not sure why as I’ve never fallen or even failed a climb, I just have a “thing”. 

Right now foot locks are out so its hands only, not pretty but it’s a good grip and strength workout.

Another early morning trundle through the tracks and trails, got my layers right this time, so no windchill to worry about.

Few meetings and Zoom sessions then it’s off to the cave for some strength and mobility work.

It’s not all wack-a-tyre and industrial juggling here at Ward Towers, someday’s we just slow things down and focus on control. 

Trying very hard not to over engage my arms and let my back and core do the work, hips clearly need more projection, something to focus on.

Perfect way to end Sunday. 

Big swig of Kombucha (love this stuff), home made Indian dinner courtesy of Mrs W and more miles in the legs. 

Just shy of 150 km this week, leg is sore as a consequence but blue skies and bare thighs make it all worthwhile, roll on the summer.

Not sure which was harder, breathing, putting the bells down in the right place or not throwing up.

Another fun Friday session in the cave.
