I would have liked to think I was going to be competitive but now I'm a bit worried!
Still I can't let the guy from Queensland come to Sydney and get the title of Sydney's Strongest man without at least putting up a good fight.
Adam, the strategy of going heavier to make the actual implements feel lighter is definitely something I'm working on. I'm really trying to build a buffer too against fatigue on the day and also any nasty surprises the actual implements throw up.
Dave I like your suggestion of drilling the weak points, I'll add that next week, I have a feeling i'm going to have to do lots of practice on the turns for farmers since my straight line speed is ok.
I've got almost exactly 3 months to train now so we'll see how it goes. Look out for novel videos of me flogging myself soon!
