Had a well-earned rest day yesterday, far too tired to get up at 5am so had a lay in till 830; although I suspect that 830 isn’t what most would call a lay in!
I’ve been buying chicken fillets from Westin Gourmet until last weekend when I discovered a place in Norwich called Burgers Plus. 5kg of chicken breast for £25 is a bargain and the quality turned out to be really good. It’s locally sourced and the breasts aren’t full of water. They also aren’t mutant chicken sized – I always worry about overly big breasts… I also decided to see if Aldi had any food that I’d like, last time I went there I was a Vegan so it didn’t do much for me as I don’t want biscuits, crisps and wheel trims; this time however I picked up some Lean Steak Mince. The back of the packaging shows a farmer who has reared grass-fed cattle for x years but it doesn’t actually say it is grass-fed meat so I’m only hoping it is? I’ve cooked and eaten some today and its pretty damn good – and a saving over the normal lean organic mince I buy from Sainsburys.
There was some discussion on facebook yesterday about locations of monkey bars in Norwich and I went in search of them this morning. Unfortunately, public parks seem to get locked up and not unlocked until 10am! Tried Sparhawk park but the gate was a little high, fortunately Catton Recreation ground only has a little gate . They have 2 sets of bars there – one of which is the right size for a big kid like me .
After a fool about on the bars I had a walk through Mousehold heath, stopping to do pull ups, chin ups and hanging leg raises where ever I found a suitable branch. The rest of the morning has been spent upside down in wall supported hand stands and doing L sits, chin ups, pull ups, hanging leg raises and some shoulder flexibility work.
