I'm very happy with this. For one, I hit all my openers easily. Second, the second attempts were all solid, and the squat and deadlift seconds were state records. Third, I went for it on the third lifts. I got the squat up, but bobbled a little. I had bad technique on the bench; let it down too high on my chest--should have made that weight. The 402 deadlift is just a little bridge too far for now, but it's coming.
I had lots of fun. Training mate Kurt got a new American record in deadlift (attaboy!). Training mates Cathy and Barb had great meets. And I felt like I was in the meet mentally and physically all the way through.
Also a shout to Doc, who had his usual amazing performance!
Thanks, Jeff. Great coaching! And thanks to Josh and his crew: this is a really, really well-run meet.
