After much whinging, it's time to start simulcasting the journal here. Since I've just had a long break, this even seems a sensible point to start.

Sunday 29/10

Haven't benched for three weeks, which is probably some sort of record for the last few years.

Pulldowns 70x15

Bench 20x8, 60x5, 80x3, 100x1, 110x1, 120x3 (all paused), 100x10, 9.5 (couldn't quite lock out the last one on the right side). Form was nice and solid here.

Incline DB Press 35.7x9,7. Ran out of steam rather.

EZ Curls 22.5x10 (on a straight bar), 45x10x2.

DB Preachers 17.5x10x2.

And a bit of stretching. Very pleasing benching (I've only tripled 120 once before, a while ago), so happy.

The assassin is here! Thanks for your help in bringing the Doc's log to Sugden Barball Jonny. I couldn't have done it without you, my fellow country bumpkin.

Didn't realise that was on the back of three weeks no benching today mate, good stuff and bodes well for the next few months hopefully! 300lbs by Christmas maybe?

Oh by the way Rick - I LOVE the journal avatar Happy

Well, you would, you set it and took it Happy.

As I suspected, today I have the DOMS of two men in my pecs, delts and tris (though interestingly none at all in my bis - possibly it will arrive tomorrow).

For fitting-in-with-my-life reasons, I shall be attempting to squat tomorrow rather than Wednesday, and possibly doing overheads if I'm not in too much pain. Hope to arrive about 6, but we'll see. My knees are feeling very tight today, so tomorrow could be interesting.

Jonny - if you want to see the assassin coming, you have to subscribe to my *other* other site.

Thank you, thank you, I'm here all week.

Tuesday 31/10

Right knee has been feeling stiff, balky, and generally dodgy since the end of last week. I suspect I somehow twisted it - probably in my sleep. I've done that before. So, let's try to squat, concentrating on form and a nice wide stance, and see what happens.

Squat 20x5, 60x5, 80x3, 100x3, 115x2.

So far, *great* - I'm aware of the knee but everything feels solid and easy, and apparently I'm "borderline" for depth, according to both Jo and Olly independently - which I'm happy with, since it's lower than of late. I think Olly's probably the tightest depth judge of any of us, so if he says it's close it really is close.

130x1 - appalling, completely fell apart, felt awful, heavy, crap.

100x5, 1. Was going to be 10x2, but the knee started hurting on the first set. When I tried for five more, it told me to f**k off. So I did.

No shoulder work, I'm still Dr Doms from Sunday. Stretching, home.

Started well, finished badly. On the upside, we met a very big (makes me look little), strong, Canadian guy. More strong guys = good thing.

I believe Ricky is back in the world of rock and roll... he had a gig last night I think.

Do you want us to print you a map in case you've forgotten where Sugden is??

Rick's presence will forever be remembered... in the form of a front page tribute.

May his weightlifting gloves, Cotswold's Carrier Bag and portable hair-dryer all live happily ever after.

I continue to keep Rick's journal alive in his absence.

Quote of the day at the gym was by Alex - "is he really dead?".
