Derailed By the Move 

  • Dec 10th, 2018 at 9:28AM

Not really considering this a "graduation" post as I have not being participating in the program for the last 2 weeks. Moving house really derailed me. I donated the Hillbilly Squat rack to the person who was moving in to our old house. My new rack and equipment was ordered, and was supposed to arrive a few days after we moved into the new place BUT it got held by by Chinese customs!!! It still has not arrived. This on top of having to pack/unpack, get the new place squared away etc, meant that I had little motivation or equipment to keep plugging on.

It's not a huge deal for me though. This was my third Iron, and I did a LOT of programs in 2018. I feel in ok shape, but I am very keen to keep on with the Iron workouts as soon as my shiny new squat rack arrives. As soon as I click on "Create Post" I am going to sign up for a program kicking off in January 2019 so I keep on track with my personal fitness.

Thanks to Matt B for guiding us through this fantastic program, you are a great trainer mate. A HUGE shout out to Ed for his enthusiasm and motivating us through the Iron valley - it was great being on program with you. And of course thanks to my team mates, you have been a great group and I apologise for falling off the blogging wagon at the end.
Happy Christmas and see you all in 2019! Photos of my new rig will follow, when it arrives and i have carried it up three flights of stairs, and then constructed it!

Constructing your new squat rack sounds like a workout in it's own right. What I love about your final entry is the patience and wisdom of a Kenzai warrior. You know you fell off at the end, because sometimes we prioritize other things in life. That doesn't have to be a big deal and you know your commitment to fitness continues on. Let's do another program together in 2019. Your energy is infectious.

    Two weeks is nothing for a 3 time Iron-man. Especially when I'm sure you'll be the first to take on Iron for a 4th time too. Thanks for giving so much to all the teammates Burnsie! And can't wait to see photos of the new and improved home gym in the new digs. Have a great Christmas and New Year and see you in 2019 for whatever peaks your training interest next. Congrats and COMPLETE (again!)!!!
