Damien is busy setting up a desk downstairs for our new temp who is starting next week. I need some admin support, so this is the first of two steps in reducing my workload so I can concentrate on marketing and promotion (I have made some awesome contacts there recently!) and updating my website more often. We’re getting there!
We are planning a short getaway to the Grampians in a few weeks for some hiking – looking forward to a few days off. Really need to start planning next year’s holiday too – may be our last for some time! I’d love to go to Europe but I think that may have to be when we win lotto ie never. Another cruise would be nice though.
Well what an amazing weekend it’s been weather wise. In the high 20′s – awesome. I was out ‘pounding the pavement’ this morning – it was just glorious. I got swooped by a magpie And yesterday too. So, I guess I will have to avoid our nice tree lined areas by the river for awhile. Just when the weather is divine, now I have magpie’s to keep me away. Tomorrow is shoulders and chest. I haven’t trained since Wednesday actually – had a huge deadlift session where I managed a PB of 5 reps at 95kg on sumo’s. Did 4 heavy sets. My back was too sore to train 2 days later! I’m reducing my training to 3 x week, and increasing the cardio a little for awhile. I was getting some good upper body size going on with the new program I was doing. Lots of chin up, and deadlift variations. No direct shoulder work which was different.
Today was the first day in ages I have had relatively free to do what I want. So, I went for a look around the shops to see what’s about for summer. It was so relaxing not to be rushing here there and everywhere. I also managed to get a newsletter out – first one in ages.
Work this week is looking huge. I think I will aim to start on programs tomorrow and get a couple done each day so I am not still writing on Saturday/Sunday.
Watched Blood Diamond last night – very action packed movie!
