SO I'm a bit bummed I have to de-prioritise the heavy dumbbell work and put my focus back on the log. But it's the only logical step towards getting better on the events that count. And not training my weakest event would be stupid.

It's a pretty steep learning curve with the log right now; we have one which cannot be loaded and weighs 60, and then there's fatboy, who had some minor surgery last year and now weighs pretty much 90. I was just happy I pressed it once. I stalled on the way up, but I completed the rep. Didn't see any wisdom in trying for a second.

Of all the things I did tonight, it was the dips at the end that killed me. My shoulder just isn't cool with that shit yet. Only thing to do is to keep doing it.
