Thank.  Goodness.  Its.  FRIDAY!

Man, do I have that Friday feeling or what?!  WHAT?!!  I don't even have plans tonight.  I am just really excited about going home.  Not drinking.  Watching some catch up TV.  Passing out early.  Man, I am getting old aren't I?  I think it is because of the four day week after the Bank Holiday long weekend.  It always feels like it drags.

Don't judge me too much.  Tuesday night Michelle and I went to go and see Bring Me The Horizon at Koko.  It was awesome and we had such a good night, singing along and dancing as per usual.

Just a small crowd really.

This is the shirt I was wearing.  I bought it from General Pants in Australia when I was there earlier this year. Pretty cool huh? Surf's up!

I look like I have beaver teeth in this photo, but I love it anyway!

So I wasn't really in the mood to get up and go for a workout on Wednesday morning.  I was feeling a bit dusty and knew that I would make it up to myself on Thursday.

Thursday WOD
5mins cross trainer warm up

Back squats
Bar only (20kg) – 3 x 12 reps

30kg – 3 x 12 reps
40kg – 3 x 8 reps
50kg – 3 x 5 reps

*Then the bar started slipping out of my hands and I gave up.

Calf press on the leg press machine

Wide leg press

Pull up practise
Quite a few goes at lifting myself up with assistance, then letting myself down without assistance
Quite a few goes at pull ups with someone holding my feet for assistance

428Kcal burnt for this workout.  Those deadlifts really got my heart rate so high! But, I can feel myself getting stronger - which makes me super happy.

So, a tangent - my little brother was living in Canada the last few years, but at the moment he is in Tasmania with my Mum, before starting a snow season at Falls Creek in Victoria.  Mum and Spike are teasing me by sending through beautiful photos of the sunset view from mum's place.

I love a sun burnt country...

I love MY sun burnt country.  This was the same night, I believe.  You could take 100 photos and they would all be different.  I remember nights at home, sitting on the deck drinking beer and eating great food, talking sh*t and watching the sunsets.

Am I homesick?  YES.  I 100% am right now.

Friday WOD
10mins cardio on treadmill
1min walking 6.5
1min running 9, 11, 13, 14

Repeat the above circuit.  Try not to rest in between.

550Kcal burnt during this workout.

And that concludes my work week!  Sorry for the ultra long post. I just wanted to update as to what has been going on this week.  You know, this blog IS kinda like my diary ;)
