Today was awesome! No big numbers, no breakthrough movements, just honest grunt work. Things felt heavy, some stuff moved more slowly than I'd like, but I loved training. I mean really loved it! I split my training into two parts today, the first at 2:30pm and the second at 7pm.

I've featured a couple of bits I haven't before because they add so much value to my training, and the vest especially will over the coming months in the build-up to Mountain Murph! Remember, click the image to visit and buy, and use code TH5 to save!
I first ate at 8am today. I had 2 fried eggs, a stack of streaky bacon, half an avocado and some grapes.
At around 1pm I had 3 pork chops and a little cheese, followed by an orange and a banana.
As a pre-training snack at 7pm, I had some cold roast beef and rasperries.
I'll eat my evening meal around 9:30pm tonight, which will be steak and sauteed potatoes with mushroom and courgette on the side.
Today was the kind of grunt work I live for. Sure records are nice, but the satisfaction of a solid day of graft is hard to beat! Bring on some more!
