Work it Harder

What a week, i guess this is my first proper post about life and all that, now i'm getting linked up all over the place i guess someone must be reading this. Just the weekend to update on then, I was planning a trip down to mansfield to do some gates on saturday with Jez and Jordan but with Coach J having other commitments i made my way over to my local gate session at Bradford. The weather held out and i got some solid gates in, my timing seems to be spot on but i look at the gate and have a mental block about it not falling so chicken out every now and again, think its time to start looking at the lights. David Brown who is a Bradford local and ex British Champ is killing it, lets hope to see him at a national sometime soon. After a few gates i took a few of the better riders into the container to watch a section of the "how to race BMX" DVD on gates, i think its good for them to see it in this format so its not just me and Billy getting on their back and telling them to do stuff for the sake of it. Back on the gate after that and all riders showed an improvement, some really starting to show potential.

Today i wanted to head over to Fearnville in Leeds for a session, so called up a couple of buddies and were all ready to rock and roll but the weather took a turn for the worse, Snazel got sick and we decided to give it a miss. I'm really starting to enjoy the track, ok its not the best to go to for hang time but as a BIG race track its going to work, the start hill is pretty big and should be great when we get the gate running, 2nd straight is fast as, but easy to mess up and loose speed, the 3rd all about getting smooth through the doubles and hitting the downsides and the last straight has more lines that Pete Doherty, its just a mint place to play around.

Yer so that didnt happen so I did a gym session followed by some sprints, oggy has really helped me in the gym and given me a few new things to try out, it seems to be working, im killing cruiser and Twarn is nowhere ;) The whole house is pretty fitness mad at the moment, Ciaran is doing 200 bicep curls a day, housemate A (doesnt want to be mentioned) is obsesed with bulking up to be bigger than the maximuscle guys so is training with Owen and all about the protien shakes. I'm just doing my thing and enjoying riding, havent got the patience to do all this cardio lark tho, get bored to easily.
