Yeah these look sexy as hell ;) 

 

Meh, who cares about how they look. I'll take function over looks any day of the week. Those callouses need a good going over with a pumice stone. They look like they're going to rip!

Oh, c'mon Willy! That picture should be inside a of a spoiler, lol.

And if that's your hand, they are right, those things look at the verge of ripping.

 

Charlie! Have you worked out the DOMS thing yet? Do you take any suplements?

Those are not mine, i haven't been lifting for 3 weeks I'm almost back to my usual computer hands ;) thanx for giving me the heads up though. I just wanted to find some dirty looking callouses to make my point. As usual just clowning around :D

Ooh I can so relate to your post about not sleeping well because it's been so hot at night here.

 

We are at the stage where it is too cold to sleep with just the sheet, but too warm with anything added... So you wake up all night long, being cold the one time, hot the next...

Thank the maker! They looked like they were about to get really unpleasant really soon!

It wouldn't be so bad if we could open the window at night, but we have to keep it closed or the cat goes out and tries to pick fights with foxes! Plus there was a badger rooting around in the bushes outside our window a few nights ago and I hate to think what that would do to the cat if he was stupid enough to try something (which he is).

I've started taking BCAAS in the last week. Bit soon to tell if they are helpful though. No major DOMS this week, but I haven't had a leg day this week so far!

Be interested to hear if they help. I had shocking DOMS last week (first week back after four weeks of no gym, though). My trainer reckons I drink too much water and need to drink something like lucozade sport to put the electrolytes back.

Aye, I guess your body needs to load up on the BCAAS to make good use of them.

 

Foxes and a badger? There's a pretty active wild life in your area! Wise thing,  not letting the cat out at night.

I've read that electrolyte replacement is good if you are exercising for over 90 minutes at a time, as they help with fluid retention. Be careful with the bottles of Lucozade though, they are deceptively high in calories. You can buy Lucozade light, but it's far cheaper to buy a tube of electrolyte tablets that you dissolve in water.

The badger really freaked me out! I could hear something stamping around in the bushes under the window and woke Hubs up (because I'm a giant chicken) as I thought it was someone trying to break in. It must have been a big bugger to make that much noise. Still, it made a change from the foxes using the bushes as a brothel - the noises foxes make during sexy-times is truly disturbing.

I absolutely despise Chemical Orange flavour Lucozade.

When running back in the UK I'll only take a small bottle of water with me on a long run in summer but then drink loads when I get home, and I can't say I've ever suffered massive DOMS this way.

But yeah, those electrolyte tabs you can drop in the bottle are good. I did use them on long bike rides and they worked well.

If only they made the noise they do in this video. The real noise is more like someone doing something really inappropriate to a Pikachu. And with that, I've reserved my seat in Hell.

Another downvote for lucozade. I found it too sickly to drink during exercise.

The wisdom of age: don't stop walking.

I don't like the "full fat" Lucozades as they are really syrupy sweet, but the light lemon and lime one isn't too bad. I sometimes take one climbing with me if I'm going to be there for a while. I wouldn't use it while running though.

----------------------------------

 

Just realised I haven't done an actual update in a few days. My mood has been a bit off since Wednesday but I'm starting to feeling a little less glum this afternoon. Must be that Friday before OCR feeling.

 

Wednesday I didn't lift in the evening. The weather was absolutely glorious when I left work and a thought crossed my mind that this might be the last really nice day of the year. The next thought that went through my head? Pub. So I called Hubs and we went to a country pub, sat in the garden and enjoyed a pint and a natter. 

 

Yesterday I went climbing. My break from climbing hasn't had too much of an impact and I managed a fair few of the blue problems. There were a few that were very finger grippy. I attempted them but had to stop pretty quickly as my hands were getting sore and I couldn't risk shredding them before Saturday. I think once winter comes, I'm going to really focus on climbing as I won't have to worry too much about ruining my hands. Sorry hands.

 

Tonight will be rest and gear check before tomorrow. I've got to get up at 5:30 as I'm on driving duty so 9 o'clock bed time for me tonight. Is it wrong that I'm looking forward to an early night?

I think with all the handcare advise you gave that your hands will forgive you if you show them a little love outside the climbing gym :) 

 

It's never wrong to look forward to an early night, haha. I quite frequently enjoy early nights and they may or may not be on the weekends, too.

@Wild Wolf & @mr_willes you don't need a chart to tell you you're great dads. Your great parenting comes across very clearly in your posts. Wolfie, I meant to write this on your thread after your last video; when your little boy came in and asked you if he was allowed to eat something, I was so impressed by how polite he was. You guys are winning the parenting game.
