Here Comes the Summer!


OK I may be a bit optimistic this early in the year but it's an ideal time to get prepared for those long hot Summer days.




I've been down in Ramsgate for 3 months now and for the most part I've been a right lazy bastard in terms of daily preparation for my trading and also in terms of my fitness routine. It's time to get back into the form study now that the flat season is almost upon us in order to get a bit more cash in the bank. I'm going to make a big effort to spend at least 1 hour every day before racing starts to compile my notes that outline a horses typical running style. Having this information to hand really paid dividends a couple of years back and I had some nice wins which made the effort worthwhile.

My physical training and diet has been very much hit and miss over the last few weeks. The main problem is that the the lure of live bands and alcohol in boozers that are VERY local is just too much to resist! This means that I can't be bothered trying to stick to a strict diet and I also feel too fucked to go to the gym most mornings as I feel mangled from the night before!




So for March I'm determined to stay out of the boozers as much as possible, stick to a strict diet, smash the gym and get back down to a decent weight.



01/03

+£339.15. A cracking start to the month! I had a nice gift of a win early doors and then chipped away here and there and ended up with a respectable total, especially as I only traded 19  races. Roll on the summer and 50+ races per day!



02/03

+£192.05. No big wins today but I traded 36 races with no major hiccups and things seemed to flow smoothly. It's always good to stay in 3 figure territory!





As promised I hit the gym this morning for a lovely quad workout. I took my Go Pro along to record the moment but unfortunately it ran out of juice as I started the hack squats. Hopefully I'll be back down there to have another workout tomorrow.



03/03

+£478.30. To be honest I had another lucky win today but it all counts I suppose!




Rocky Balboa eat your heart out! Obviously I was only doing light weights but the big dumbells will come out at some point in the future ...



04/03

+£9.29. I wasn't particularly going anywhere fast and then Betfair crashed so I decided to have an afternoon snooze which was much needed! I then ventured out for the second night in a row to see another live band in a local boozer and stumbled home at around 02:00 ...



05/03

+£67.42. I only managed to trade 16 races today so once again couldn't complain about the end total.

15/03

+£57.34. I hate it when I forget to update the blog or when I'm too busy dealing with other shit. There's no point in just putting up my P&L as that gets well boring. It's now the 27/03 so I'll update the next few days and then make an effort to resume a lighthearted effort ...
