Sept 11, 2010

What can I say?  Severely pissed at myself.  Hurt my pec last weekend and its just not getting better.  I don't think its anything serious like a tear, there doesn't seem to be any evidence of that but despite the ice and anti-inflamms its just not healing.

This morning at training, even with the shirt on it cained! Couldn't get the bar anywhere near as close to touching as last week.  On the positive side, my shoulder isn't hurting. And....   my new deadlift suit arrived.  Yay!  25 mins to get it on, it's tight as!  Feels like my old Inzer MaxDL when it was new - but even harder.  Hopefully with the straps up I wont be able to feel any pain in my pec.

Today is day 1 of a 7 day run on the P1 pager and its been off to a bad start with 4 pages today and still and hour to go :-(   On the other hand its my last week of P1 for 2 months.  2 weeks today I'm heading off to Europe, I am so looking forward to the holiday.  Pilsen Brewery tour is first on the list the day after I compete.

In a complete show of madness I've decided to do some spring cleaning.  Climbed the ladder of death and removed the 'garden ' that was growing in gutters and have booked a hard rubbish collection for tomorrow. So between P1's Madi and I have been taking stuff down to the road and / or throwing things off the cliff down to road.  Hehehehe.   But I think in the process of looking for stuff to throw out, I've actually made more mess!  I've also reluctantly decided to junk my home built computer, Franki, who was put together a few years ago from spare parts - my one and only venture into 'hardware'.

To dismantle Frankenstein (Franki) I thought it best to remove his hard drive, but do you think I could find a bloody screwdriver?  I know I have one....   but where?  You would think after how many years of being single, lets not count,  that I would have a decent toolkit. Nope.  I have a massive  chainsaw, a hardcore weed slasher even a hammer drill....  but the basic tools - na-da.

Tomorrow morning, before the pager kicks in, I'm off to Bunnings:

Screwdriver set - one with a ratchet (sp?)

What other basics do I need???

Who needs a man.....
