X-Ray Result

 Found out why i have pins and needles in my arm apparently i have bone spurs in my neck which impinge the nerves that run down my arm, not to cool.
Well they aren't going to go away but if i work on and maintain good range of motion in my neck the pins and needles should go away. Using my head as a battering ram for most of my youth maybe wasn't such a good idea, but no regrets just another bump in the journey.

not quite right,but getting there

Well i haven't got much to talk about cause I ain't been doing much. The past weekend at Wes and Jane's beach house was an awesome way to spend time with friends eating ,drinking and swimming
 My back is slowly getting better but it seems to be resisting treatment, I guess there's light at the end of the tunnel but it's pretty frustrating not been able to train and climb as much as i want. Managing to run and stretch a few times a week  but i really just want to crush some stone.
   The stones have lain dormant in the back yard now for me all year, haven't tried to lift them since Christmas and i can feel their calling everyday. Thanks to the sophisticated measurements of the Tiger Monkey Institute (TMI) the stones now have official weights.
Haviland Stone 58kg
Clark stone 60kg.
Not super heavy but pressing them above your head requires technique and power that since they have been here no one has possesed. Another goal for winter.
I'm pretty sure that within the next couple of weeks i will be able to increase the training and my goals will start to be realised and the post's will get more exciting.
Get strong and enjoy your journey.
Just so it's not a completely verbal post the photo's are from Font 09, cheer's to Sharik for taking the photo of me.

Some Kind Of Bliss

First weekend home and headed down to D.F with Wes and Phil. Due to a recovering back i decided not to try to climb but went to take photo's.
Hadn't taken many photo's on a rope but was happy with some of the results.
Although neither of them ticked the route it was good to see Phil looking strong again and Wes getting more beastly on big numbers.
My back is starting to feel a fair bit better and am looking forward to a bit of training next week.
Start work full time next week and am looking forward to it strangley enough. 
Have a good week and play hard.

Not To Forget the Drink of Champions

Maybe the consumption of Rubicon makes you strong enough to crush there.
Pity i only found this amazing strength giving beverage as i was leaving.

Home,Thanks and Stupid Product Names

I have arrived back Home. Many thanks to Phil for picking me up from the airport, no thanks to those who misplaced my luggage. Gone but not forgotten should turn up tomorrow.
 Had a good last day out in the peak on Sunday with Sharik and Jo doing easy highballs in the sun.
Thanks also to them for having me stay the past month.
Whilst wandering the airport in Paris the other day i saw an ad for COCKPIT . I can just imagine someone getting all dressed up then splashing a bit of COCKPIT on for extra effect. Do people not think when they name products.
The other great name from the last couple of weeks was kfc's BLAZING BOXMASTER. Don't know what it tasted like but i'm pretty sure it's not what springs to mind.
Good to be home after a good trip, to everyone i climbed,drank etc with thank you all for the goodtimes and i look forward to doing it again soon.
