Hi Darren,

I applaude all of those venturing outside of their normal parameters (as you know I include myself in this).

I was not intending my comments to be taken as criticism, they were rather, 'observations' in response to Patricks questions. I feel lucky to have had the 'mental' aspect inherent in my practice. However, I am having to learn the 'harder' more pressure side, so from that perspective, I am a relative beginner.

I hope no one takes offence, as none was intended. We are all students of this stuff, and mastery is something that only comes with a great deal of practice.

I thought the whole weekend was really good. I'm sure all who were there will take away a great deal to work on.

Thanks for the practice too, I look forward to the next one,

cheers,

Mark
Cheers Mark

I'm quite defensive of the muscling fraternity, due to my close similarity to Arnie Schwartzenneger...so thanks for clearing that up.
