November has been a good month.
The expansion of HG3 is going really well, mainly due to the hard work and dedication from Pete and Rudds. I only wish that I had more time to help but I have been prioritising some family time.
My diet is good and the regular Kinetica protein, creatine and glutamine have made me feel great. I enjoy some rolled oats for breakfast, otherwise I am pretty much paleo.
Got a respectable 150kg squat and managed a 220kg deadlift on Monday. It was a struggle but I had to finish it once I lifted it off the floor.
Kid are enjoying it too and we are proud of their efforts- although I was surprised by a comment from Frazer recently made over supper. He deletes any Crossfit related updates on his Facebook, as he thinks his friends will think it is not ‘cool’. It isn’t a ‘proper’ sport like football. I wish I could have pulled a 1:49 500m row when I was 13.

Decided to try something new.
Had a fun but sometimes frightening session thanks to Jacqui from London.She is a strong girl!
I was a better base than a flyer.
Seeing the fear in Chris’s face made me realise that I wasn’t the only one.

Rachel said I had a nice shaped bottom this morning – the kind you might see in a magazine.
What – ‘Horse and Hounds’?

Booked Frazer and me onto a Pure Running course, run by Teri Knight, at HG3.
I have never enjoyed running but Frazer has recently become enthused, so I thought it might be a good father/son activity.
I was aching already, having done 3 back to back days and there was a lot of running.
Teri was meticulous in pointing out aspects of running technique and it was a thoroughly enjoyable three hours. She said that my running was not a total disaster.
Would consider it again next year, to see if I have improved.
Think the picture says it all.

A much better month – making 16 sessions, having stuck to 4 a week.
Plenty of running, deadlifts and squats of various types.
Still frustrated by Double Unders but managed to RX a few WoDs by persevering with DUs, Singles etc.
Have booked some more sessions with Villy – the massages are definitely helping.
My weight has hovered around 97-98kg but my belt is getting looser.
Might have to publish a photo before the end of November.
Frazer and Zara are both loving the Kids sessions too.

Looked back through my training log and realised that I was doing too much, especially after a month off for the summer.
Managed 19 sessions including one Sunday session.
Enjoyed the sailing towards the end of the month. Rolling tacking was great fun.
Agreed with Rachel that I would moderate my attendance, trying to stick to Mon, Wed, Fri with a Saturday if I felt good.

Tried my best tonight but still fell on my arse, felt dizzy and weak on the jerks.
60kg power snatch and 70kg clean and jerk. No improvement since March.
Am wondering why I put myself through the stress.
