christmas holiday was great, as usual. not that I am overly religious but getting time off from work makes it a worthwhile holiday in my book.
last week ended pretty dramatically. luckily, I was surrounded by calm and experienced colleagues. to them it was business as usual, I guess. some of the things that happened were things I hoped to avoid for some time yet. nonetheless, I am grateful for being a part of the events that occurred. valuable lessons learned. also, filled with amazement and admiration when seeing my colleagues work. they rock.
took a few days off from lifting. working 8am until 10pm for a week straight makes me wanna do that. went to visit my friend, the eleiko powerlifting bar, yesterday. got a few good sets of squats (4×2 182.5 kg) and bench (3×6 120 kg) in. then, as always, tons of volume. joked around a bit with the real lifters (world, european and national titles), briefly considered to start using PEDs. quickly decided against it due to illegal, dangerous, expensive, dangerous, I’m not a competitor, also dangerous and illegal.
bought a slingshot for shitz and gigglez. let’s see how I get an easy 150 kg bench in a year or two with this marvelous piece of equipment.
be good to each other.
