I got my first “what does your husband think?” question about me doing a StrongWoman competition. It’s not a comment I would have got if I decided to enter a 10K run. I am not sure how it makes me feel, confused I think mainly about the thinking behind such a question.
I have entered another StrongWoman competition. This one is in October and much nearer my current strength abilities
Whilst I think it is full if you do fancy having a go get in touch with @Megrstrong as there is a reserve list.
Last week I bought this t-shirt
I was hoping I bought it on the day I finally got a 45kg log press, but that was not to be. I currently can’t lock it out properly. I think I am putting extra pressure on myself to do it as in August the lighter weight is 45kg for reps in 60seconds. Whilst I don’t expect to excel my current baseline is to be able to at least start every event.
Apart from the abortive session I whinged about on the blog the gym was good to me last week. I got some more yoke walks done, I wasn’t using a belt so only got to 130kg but happy with that at the moment. I upped my PR for farmers walk to 62.5kg per hand with turn. I am making progress slowly (which actually seems to be my main problem in all the lifts, if my coach isn’t saying HIPS! then he is saying FASTER!) I appear to be a grinder rather than an exploder….
The main reason I wanted to blog today wihthout really having anything to say is 2 posts that I wanted to recommend. Firstly Nia Shanks The commandments for losing fat, the sane and simple way is currently free on Amazon. So why am I, who is suppose to be embracing what a body can do not what it looks like, recommending this? Because I think the title is misleading, yes you may lose fat but actual it’s just a pretty good blueprint on how to start living a healthy life. Have a read and see what I mean.
The second recommendation is for a post by Fit and Feminist. ”What we need to do is change the paradigm so that we value our bodies for all of the amazing things they let us do.” This post is just awesome. Please read.
