Yeah man, gotta take care of that stuff right away.

Welcome back gm!

Only hit 2 last week. 3 if you count my traipsing around the woods on a quad. Goal this week is 3 for M-W-F, alll legs.

Cheers!

4/5 last week, will be the same this week didn't do it yesterday. Makes it so much easier when the equipment is up and in the same room as office - no excuses!

There's always Saturday to make up!

Only 2 last week due to surgery. I could have gone Friday but really got tired of leg days.

Back at it this week, going for 4/week again.

>> burnt my porridge while spreadsheeting

Make your porridge in the microwave. It will turn off by itself.

I don't use those things, read too much about our safety standard protocols when it comes to microwaves.

Should probably use a good old fashioned timer :)

Did 4/4 last week.  This week I was supposed to do my last workout today, but I'm unlikely to make it, I am stuck in an airport at the moment.

4/5 again.

Surprised how quickly muscle starts to tighten, need to start doing more stretching.

Drink lots of water, too. Most people don't drink enough, ever, and it really helps.

Once your muscle grows and gets healthy, the tightness does fade. A strong and healthy muscle is almost flabby when not firing.
