I just arrived at the Olympic Training Center today. I had to wake up at 4am to get to the airport and fly out of Minneapolis. Phew. Thankfully Dan Moeller let me stay at his mom’s house so I didn’t have to wake up even earlier to drive to Minneapolis. I ended up missing my shuttle at the airport so I missed the first half hour of the first training session.. I still got it in though.
snatch- up to 135kg (297lbs)
clean/jerk- up to 160kg (352lbs)
front squat- up to 180kgx2 (396lbs)
I think he just wanted to get a feel for me and see what I looked like (Zygmunt Smalcerz, the head coach for USA Weightlifting). It was a good session despite basically no sleep and all the traveling. I am definitely looking forward to tomorrow to be able to turn it up a notch after a good nights sleep. PS- this dorm room is wayy nicer than even the ones at UNI. Sweet!! The dining center doesn’t have even half the amount of food as UNI, but, it’s still good. Anyway, I’ll post tomorrow as I am going to crash already!
