Agreed with mike on that, that last set looked tense man good stuff! And that was a mental amount of reps for a 100kg deadlift! Ha :) how's nz man? Weather alright?

Thanks for the video comments everyone. I just had time for a quick Paddy's Day workout before I head out for dinner, looking forward to putting on some quality muscle now!

That'd be a dream to do! :)

Cheers dudettes. Yeah it was a good session but nothing mind blowing. Mainly just feeling the muscles working and getting some good speed and power into the movements.

Last sets were 220 x 4 on the squats and pulled a very easy triple with 352 for the DL's. Bodyweight is down right now so I'm not pushing it until that comes back up ~ was 140 this morning. Still have another 5-8lb to get back to my pre-sickness bw.

In the off chance that any of you have been wondering where I've been and if I have been training, I've had a change of direction.

I'm taking a layoff from powerlifting, some of you might know that my other passion is running and I have been invited to run a 100 mile race at the end of August...

http://www.greatnasebywaterrace.co.nz/format.html

Needless to say I am back on the roads/trails trying to get some running fitness back ~ just 5 months to get ready! Will be my first 100miler so my primary goal is of course to finish; secondary goal is to finish under 30hrs, but ideally I'd like to think I could get close to the 25hr mark. We will see...

I was actually thinking of you as I was running today. Glad to hear you are going to challenge yourself and back to one of your loves I am sure you have been missing dearly
