Technically it’s not even winter yet but man how awful was that cold snap last week?
On the one hand, cold weather is a good thing because it means I can start thinking taking a few days off to go snowboarding, but on the other hand, if I’m not snowboarding all I want to do when it’s cold is wrap up in a blanket, drink hot tea and complain about it! Ironic because I have a British / Scottish background and you’d think I’d be well equipped to cope with cold weather, but apparently I am not!
So anyway, my strategy for winter is supposed to be to eat as much as possible to pack on some size, which I’ll then refine and define through out the spring in preparation for summer time. The extra cold weather has actually hindered that plan a little bit though, as I tend to just chain drink hot cups of tea to keep warm, which tends to mean that I miss a few of my scheduled protein shakes. All in all though I would say I am still on track to meet my personal goals for the year.
The other good thing about winter is training in a compression t-shirt with a tanktop over the top (because I feel a bit of a prat wearing just the compression t) and also wearing a beanie to keep my head warm! That’s something I can’t really explain, but if you’ve trained wearing this stuff you’ll know what I mean. It’s just good! Putting this stuff on gets my head into the zone and psyched up to do a good workout.
Meanwhile, updates on this site have been few and far between, for a variety of reasons.
For one I’ve been a little pre-occupied working on some top secret musical projects which have kept me busy and taken up a bit of my free time which would otherwise be used writing blog entries and other articles about training and so forth.
Also I have a respectable amount of clients / sessions per week now so I guess I have taken my foot off the gas a little as far as marketing & promotion goes, and I’m spending more of my online time coaching some of my online personal training clients in particular.
With that being said though, if you are super enthusiastic about getting great results and want to train with me at least twice a week, I will make time for you! So hit me up via the contact form on this site and we’ll get started.
I have some ideas for more articles so stay tuned, I will try to get some written up in the near future.
