One of those days today and we've not even had the social worker meeting yet. Pedal snapped on my bike yesterday but it seems like the manufacturer had cross threaded it when fitting as even when half undone it was taking al my strength to get the fvcker off, getting it started took more effort that my 260 double I reckon LOL As a result I now can't fit a replacement pedal as the threads are so gone it won't lock in or hold. It's only a £100 fixie so I guess I may as well buy a new one as it will probably cost me close to that to replace the bits I need and get them fitted. Only found out the new pedal wasn't holding when I was half way out the village so had to turn back and get the car to work which I hate doing (especially when it's sunny and 14deg)
 
Training wise it was good tho, slight rough night's sleep but got some in, weighed 112.6 this morning.
 
Incline BB Bench (45deg): x20, 10x40, 8x60, 85x18, 16, 14, 12
Cable X Over: #6+5kg x18, 14, 13, 12
Land Mine V Rows: 10x40, 8x60, 90x13, 12, 11, 10, 8
V-Bar Pull Downs: 8x#10, #13x17, 15, 14, 12
Dumb Bell Curls: 17.5s x17, 14, 12, 11
 
Broga went well but shoulder it's usual pinchy self starting off the incline work so kept work weight the same this week and pushed out some extra reps, which was done with aplomb, 5 up. Weight increase on x overs was more of a wake up, only got 4 sets in as a bit of maths had me up at that point and felt that was sufficient for this week. Bit braver on rows, upped by 5 which cost me some reps, to the point where 5 sets was required, all moved well enough but knew about it for sho. Kept V bars the same considering the row work, managed 3 extra reps, last set was burning out. Which I think cost me on biceps, that and the fact that I think I had raced ahead on RIR there lately anyway so less room for manoeuvre. Got a couple extra in there, with a fight.

PMSL I wish... used to have a chromed night burner. This is a muddy fox fixie and it has stickers over warning strictly against stunts lol I'm sure a cherry picker would be fine.

Quick morning gun check had 19 and 1/8th... I'll take that. Calves must be at least 20 now too lol

Social news... no huge drama incident but despite being under a legal order now the worker is concerned there's been some regression so wanted our take. Mrs was a bit rose tinted, I was less so. I think his dad let rip LOL

The whole CPO runs until June so if we haven't got him by then if they haven't assured social they can change we will have him tgen by the looks of it

I can’t beleive social are still dragging this out. From what you’ve said their is clear unwilling to improve neglect! Surely they can do random surprise visits to the flat? And how can he get away with cancelling meetings? It’s very worrying . Hope it comes to a conclusion soon. Can’t be dragged out till June

According to TH they've only only done random visit but the worker says she's turned up and no-one has answered the door altho she was sure someone was in.

While the legal order is actioned it's all by the book, that has 10 weeks left then if they 'pass' they have til June to convince them they'll sustain it. After that there won't be another chance or rerun, if they fail this social will no longer risk longer term damage.

The GF isn't going to be granted parental rights so that risk factor alone should wake TH up but it won't. And their desire to only pass the minimum standard and do nothing to try and excel is an issue.

It's also been noted that they never have any evidence of doing the things they claim to do that are good...

It's been a mess but it is reaching an end now I think

Your social services sounds about as quick on the mark as ours. Not had to deal with personally though. What does your lad think about his (nephew?) coming to live with him?
 
Still, training going strong mate!

Muddy fox now are essentially sports direct own brand so not that great anymore.

As for custody it's looking like this next 4 months will see a definite decision and considering the GF still is considered too much of a risk to be left alone, they both only skirt above doing the bare minimum to placate people, make no extra mile effort, are basically a dysfunctional couple with no love or nurture between them, only consider the impact things have on themselves and not Ollie, are far too reliant on all of us to even be as crap as they are, still keep missing meetings and after 2 years not shown any improvement.... I'd say it's quite likely they'll lose him

TH apparently has one option. Go it alone and try and reprove himself without her distraction but I don't see that happening.

My boy loves Ollie and seems quite happy about the prospect

Had to fvcking laugh, what a weekend. THs GF texted the Mrs a picture of the bathroom she had cleaned saying how proud she was to have done FFS, they're bloody joke. Funny how they couldn't text any pics of the picnic they claim they went on with Ollie on his birthday (mrs has suggested that as a cost free option, when asked what they did later they literally replied word for word what the Mrs has told them, to the point of copy and paste, but no photos of their 2nd birthday picnic whatsoever). We had him for the day Saturday tho, he wouldn't eat much interestingly and I know coeliacs can take a few months to be 100% clear of symptoms from the disease after dietary changes but he was really off his food and bloated so I'm not 100% convinced that are that diligent about (considering she thinks the walking dead TV show is real I hold little hope she knows how to feed gluten free and TH seems to know everything without reading too). But they really think they are doing well which is scary cos they so clearly aren't and are just about doing OK... ish. And if this level of parenting is considered by them to be really good there is little hope.
 
Yesterday was Zach's turn. After catching him coming home after helping himself to my Air Force 1s (triple whites too) so he could go out we went to get him his own for school. JDs had them in all black down to £50, bargain... only they were priced wrong to rant thru at £80. Seems I'd been nice to the manager as he overheard and hopped right over and over-rode the price. Used the saved pennies for my first ever trip to Byron Burger.
 
Also found out I'm looking at about £35 to replace my drive crank on the bike, bit of a faff to get in, check the part, get it ordered and get it booked but still, not bank breaking

Sessions are getting up to big boys levels of work now. Weighed in at 113 this morning (must have been the homemade chicken nuggets last night) but I was feeling every kg of it this morning. Had to walk to the gym thanks to no bike.
 
Calf Presses: 12x80, 12x120, 8x180, 240x21, 20, 19, 18, 14
Leg Press (heel lift): 7x200, 8x240, 300x20, 18, 15, 14
Back Squats (elevated): 8x60, 6x80, 107.5x14, 12, 11
Dumb Bell Ham Curls: 17.5s x22, 18, 16, 14
EZ Curls: 8x27.5, 40x17, 14, 13, 12
 
Brisk walk soon warms you in this sudden warm (mild) spell we're having. Chucked my broga in and was ready to rumble. Got up to a hefty 240 on the calf presses and repped these out surprisingly well, bit of a drop on the last set which may have been down to a few leg press reps first, all good tho. Presses up next and ramped these up to 300 and kept the heel elevation in. This was still just as brutal as last week and despite an initial drop in the first set the reps held out where they needed to. Got a bit brave of squats and upped the weight, not that brave tho, only 2.5 up but I still HAD to match reps, anything less would have been a volume drop. Just about pushed thru to get them. DB ham curls were good this week, a little cramping again but not too much, reps nicely up. Bicep work felt heavy, managed an extra rep on each set tho so no complaining.

113! Woop!

Do you track your weight in an app or anything or just here. Would be interesting to view last 3 months in a graph form as you’ve been quite consistent with recording.

You're desperate for a graph aren't you... but no, not logged it anywhere other than here and in my training diary
