Can't believe how we had a magnitude 5.3 quake last week with no major problems, yet Italy had a 5.8 yesterday and 10 people died?

Man we are pretty lucky over here :roll:

I'll be cutting cardio right back now as I need to get my weight back on and my strength up.

For the next few months I'm looking forward to some hard training with a little more of a BB'ing/physique slant, strength is still important to me (I'm sure it always will be) but at this stage I can't see myself doing another PL'ing meet in 2012. When I get back on the PL'ing stage I want to be able to dominate, first place should be a relatively straightforward task. To do that I need to be operating at 100%, completely injury free and with the right mindset... I'm not there yet and I'm not too proud to admit that.

Arms & shoulders are up next...
