Milk is white and water is clear, I have grown quite adept at telling them apart in nearly 25 years

Ive heard of people using milk bottles for water. The logic goes that you start the day with a full bottle and have to empty it by the end.

Makes sure you get your water in at the same quantity every time if you need reminding of that kind of thing.

Would give the heaves, love milk but hard to wash smell/residue away. Whatever works for folk suppose.

Didn't do legs for two weeks due to various injuries. Done them Tuesday and still hurt today :lol: :fp:

Think I'm reaching a bit of a plateau with my workouts/muscle mass gains, going to change it up considerably I think.

Raised my squat from 40kg 3x8 two weeks ago to 70kg now, got my next meet with a strawberry float buddy sorted for two weeks time so hoping to be repping 90kg by then - hopefully get a bit of abs showing back.

Lifts that require forearms more aren't progressing quite so fast but bench is up from 40 to 65 at 3x10. Was struggling like hell with dips today - first time I've tried them back and was intentionally emphasising the lift on my chest but felt like my pecs were about to rip open, don't think they're quite back used to the exercise. :lol: Managed 3x8 which is a huge step down from when I was cracking out 20s but will come back in time. Was quite para about them as they were the first lift to screw my wrists.

Arms are making slow progress due to no chins or pulls and limited tricep work but was expecting that.

After Thursday's gooseberry fool session of gooseberry fool I strawberry floating smashed it today :datass:

Increased my max reps of back squats @ 90kg to 10. Bench @ 55kg to 12 and the rest went pretty well. Feeling good.

Currently training for the wolf run. Anyone else done it? So far I've not been able to motivate myself to run more than three kilometres.

Only thing I know is people wear Wolf Run shirts all the strawberry floating time.

I did a running session with a mate, an 800m runner training to come back to fitness this afternoon. Sort of like HIIT - mile and a half warm up/warm down and 6x 3 minute hard runs, followed by 6x 10 second hard sprints. Finished an hour ago and can still really feel it, which can only be a good thing(I hope :slol: ).

It's all part of the ultimate goal of running the Great Scottish Run in sub-50 minutes in October. Current best 10k since I got fit again is 58.01(all time PB is 57.01), so got a fair way to go yet.

Should probably have put this in the running thread.

Object Character Recognition. It's how computers can turn images to text files.

Couldn't find any more acronyms to take the piss with so I'll have to do with an actual answer http://ocrauk.org.uk/

Yes somebody else getting into OCR! :D

Get yourself to Spartan Race!

I have no idea what OCR is, without going to Google :oops:. Happy to join in with the enthusiasm, though! Unfortunately, the underside of my right heel has spawned a weird and very painful blister that actually seemed to form from the inside out. Can't even walk at the moment!

What's the best way to train for a Wolf Run in your experience? I find the treadmill very dull, but I do need to increase my cardiovascular endurance and I'm not too keen on running around outside (I live in the city centre).

Edit - hadn't seen Hawky's post. Obstacle course racing, got it!

Edit 2 - took a pin to the blister. Lots of fluid came out and I can walk again, praise Allah!

First time deadlifting with straps. OK I got 9 reps out before I felt like I couldn't breath. It seems although I felt it was my grip that was limiting me I can't actually knock many more reps out at that weight :lol: Managed all 30 at 130kg with sets of 3 all the way through. My form was a little shakey on the last reps though.

No thanks, I did Tough Mudder in 2013 and that was more than enough to satisfy my curiosity.
