not much of an update.



Well what can I say, not much further forward than I was at the last update.The new lap I made worked out great and polished much better than the last one but the outcome seemed the same with a centre problem so I took my mirror on the 350 mile journey north to see John again.We tested my mirror for warping and that turned out ok, no warping or mirror damage but we decided I needed to go back to 400 with the tile tool.I did this over about 5 hours with good contact and pencil test then a good 2 hours with 600 alu oxide and back to testing.still a central problem and the laser test shows a much more polished centre section.I'm currently doing long strokes through centre and will test again soon but I don't have much time at the moment as my life has changed a lot recently.
Health-I decided 3 months ago that I wanted to get better at my hobby rock climbing so I gave up chocolate for lent and have started eating healthier.I only eat wholegrain rice and pasta now (mainly cous cous) only semi skimmed milk,wholemeal bread and I eat about 1800 calories a day now instead of about 3000 before!!!!I've dropped from 69kg to 64kg and have starting running 3 miles twice a week and doing some deadlifting and squats.just or3ldered a new road bike to get fitter too and my climbing is getting better!!!
With all this and work I've not had any time for grinding so it's kinda on the back burner.


Will update when I can
