Well quite a bit has happened since I last posted, but since its quite late at night I'm just gonna make this a quick one and I'll fill you in on all the details another time.
Here's the view from my room - 25th floor of the Marriot - overlooking Sydney Harbour and the Opera house.
Have been out each night for dinner - Yummy steak every night. Been very lucky to catch up with a few friends up here also that I havent seen for a few months and some that I've been corresponding with - nice to put a face to a name!
Last weeks training was pretty intense. My deadlift session saw me pull up the 130kg but only for 1 rep. I've learnt a very valuable lesson too. When lifting so so close to your absolute 1 rep max - you need to have at least a days rest between sessions. So dead lifts the very next day after heavy benching..... not so good. My upper back was already sore and tired and so I dont really think I did justice to my deadlift session. Still nice to know I can get the 130 up.
Well, I'm off to bed now. Last day of the training course tomorrow (or today really... its already past midnight!)
Good night... sweet dreams....
