I tried to goblet squat a 56kg kettlebell today!

I failed. That’s my story.

Seriously though, what even is that? It’s the weight of a small person! The gym is coming along swimmingly (probably the wrong metaphor to use there, although I do sweat a lot). It can be a bit tough sometimes because weights are, you know, quite weighty, and then during the afternoon of gym days I’m out on the bike for a medium length ride with efforts. Still, I’m moving forwards and if it was easy everyone would do it!

One of my current habits at the gym is to either not feel the exercise at all, or to feel it in completely the wrong muscles. It usually goes something like this…

Chris (my personal trainer): So this one should really focus on your hamstrings now.
Me: Ahhh, yeah. Erm. I’m feeling it mostly in the backs of my knees.
Chris: Really? Not through the hamstrings at all?
Me: Nah. In fact, when I said mostly, I meant only in my knees!
Chris: I see… *confused face*

Other than training, I went up to Colchester to get a heart scan with the people at CRY. It’s a really great charity and well worth doing if you’re between the ages of 14-35. They say ignorance is bliss, but in this case it’s important to know if you have a problem!

I also dressed up as a Dinosaur and did some twerking. Wow, I’m a teenager. I’m off to France on Friday for a team bonding weekend so that should be a laugh. I’ll tell you how it goes when I’m back. Ciao for now!

    Actually, at my age? I don't need to know.
