The competition didn’t go so well yesterday. The frustration started right away in the morning. I was 2kgs over bodyweight (4.4lbs). So, I literally had to run like 5 miles throughout the day to lose the weight (we didn’t have a sauna). That, and not drinking or eating a single thing for a day and a half made me pretty grumpy/angry with myself.
Anyway, I ended up making weight. Then, I got started warming up about 20 minutes later than I wanted.
Ok- now I have listed some good excuses as to why I sucked. So let me continue on. I missed 130kg in the snatch twice in the back room. I opened with a 136kg snatch, and missed. Then I took it again and made it. Then, I missed 140kg. I moved on to the Clean and Jerk. I missed 160kg twice in the back room as well, then opened with 161 and made it, 166 and made it, and 170kgs where I cleaned it but missed the jerk.
So 136/166 were my numbers. Just an absolutely horrendous day. Thank god I have Collegiate Nationals in 5 days for some redemption.
