Well the British Masters Championships are this weekend, and if I’m not ready now, I’ll never be. Which is to say, I’m not ready now! I hate preparing for competitions because I’m *never* ready!
This week’s lifting went ok, but could have been better. The highlights are, on Tuesday I managed 3 out of 6 snatches at 70kg (154lbs), which was disappointing but not terrible. And today I managed 2 out of 3 Clean & Jerks at 95kg (209lbs) which again was just ok, not fantastic. I also bailed on the WOD I had planned today due to a slightly twingy back; no point in risking injury this close to the comp.
In other news, I was bang on the weight limit this morning, for the first time this year, and with just days to go, not a moment too soon! It’s taken me 3 months to loose the weight I put on in December and get back to what I was in November and was bang on 77kg (12st1 or 169 lbs) this morning. Here’s my weightloss graph for this year:
All hail the mighty Zone diet which comes through for me again. After this comp, I’m going to try some experiments with my diet. I foresee a lot of milk in my immediate future. 😉
