Thanks Guys!

Write up:

Barely slept last night at all, not in a way that worried me, just kept on waking up and checking the time then going back to sleep for 20 mins over and over until it was 8 o'clock and I could justify getting up! Felt very excited, probably just nervous, but did my normal routine of eggs, squash, coffee and felt good. Packed my bag and met Aldillon then got going.

Drive was easy, got there just before 12 which was perfect. I weighed 91.8. Need to be bigger or significantly lighter...

Just a side not to say that the comp was run excellently and Aldillon thoroughly enjoyed his first comp experience. If you check his journal shortly I'm sure he'll have a write up of the awesome lifting he did! Well proud Happy

Anyway, I started to warm up around half 3 but was in a big group (17) and towards the back end of the snatches. Got myself up to 40kg and stayed there for a while to put off getting ahead of the game. Took all my weights fine and lifted 90 and 95 as last two warm up singles. To be honest I have felt stronger on snatches and think I should have done more this week to keep the movement patterns engrained. I live and learn.

Onto the platform
100 Good lift. Smoked it actually. Foot work wasn't the best but nice to hit triple figure opener. It had been worrying me tbh

105 Good lift. 5kg comp PB, = Gym PB. Had to fight this. Was jumping back a bit and it wasn't in the best possible place. Still strong enough to get up

107 No lift. Again jumped back but this time too far...

Fourth place in CJ by 1kg but that wasn't my focus. Knew what I needed now to get my 240 total!

Warm up for CJ was fine, actually I lifted rather well I reckon. Felt strong, worked up at the right pace through to 120 and timed it just about right. Even got complemented on my jerk which really gave me a boost! I also "lost" my wallet half way through the warm up and this was just the right amount of distraction for me to not overthink things. Meant I would hit my lifts then be distracted immediately. Worked in a weird way...

Anyway, platform:

130 No lift. Easy, easy clean and was very strong with my drive to the point I didn't move my feet and just totally fluffed it tbh. Bugger. Decided not to lift it up because even though I was chasing 240 I wanted to be in the comp and 235 would have been a good PB

130 Good lift. Smoked it. Happy days. Had to have a little check for stability but still a very good lift. Up to 135, only one chance to hit the lift and the total I'd trained for the last 6 weeks (and the rest) to get

135 Good lift. All time CJ PB +2kg, comp PB+4kg. Really happy with how this looked! One of my fave sporting achievements ever tbh. Just a lovely culmination of a lot of hard work and nice to pull it out the bag when it counts!

Total 240kg. PB by 12kg. Biggest Snatch and CJ I've ever done put together on 1 day, in front of judges. Qualified for the English Championships 2014. Chuffed to bits!

EDIT: There are vids of all lifts coming on Monday. Happy

Ps My 15 yr old protege pulled out a 94kg British record snatch and 204kg british record total. He really is catching me up!

Thanks lads, it was a great day all in all!

Plan for English dependent on the date is 250. Might do British unis too but want to build towards 260 in may at the northern seniors. Going to take a lot of work!!!
