Busy weekend with work, the comp and now just done my driving, so first time I have really had to sort out a post-comp write-up.

Firstly, thank you to Dave and his refs, time keepers, scorers and loaders for the day, from the weighing, to the briefing and events, everything was explained, prepared and above all enjoyable.

Weighed in at 86.5kg clothed

Event 1: 105 Axle Clean and Press (from chest after first clean)

The most I have ever put overhead is 90kg, but on comp day I thought there was an outside chance that I could manage this. Belt cleaned the axle comfortably and it felt fine on my chest, had to attempts to press it and then dropped it after these failed in order to have one more go. Again cleaned the weight without drama, but just didn't have the strength and indeed belief to put it overhead, my best attempt saw the bar reach forehead level.

=9th/10th

Event 2: Max Deadlift

My pb was recently set at 210kg. I pulled a comfortable 200kg (the mandatory opening weight) and with the 20kg increases, pretty much had my path set out, 220, then if successful 240. I hit the 220 well and pretty quickly, giving me enough belief that if the 240 moved it would go... it never moved and didn't go.
220kg a pb by 10kg and that gave me

=9th/10th

Event 3: Yoke 240kg / Farmer's 110kg both 15m

I had done this in 24.4 seconds in training and knew I would do okay. Got a good clean pickup with the yoke and moved well if not lightningly quick, had a quick transition with the farmer's and again moved fairly well with them. Finished in 23.7 seconds.

7th (apparently there was only 1.5 secs difference between my time and 4th)

(After an intermission)

Event 4: Sandbag 110kg for 30m (turn at 15m)

Bearhugged and small fast steps with this, felt quick enough and I would guess I took around 15seconds. Unsure on placing, but happy with my speed.

?

Event 5: Axe hold 15kg

We were belted to the yoke for this so had to remain upright, therefore I did wank, but couldn't really fight when my left arm went, it just seems to go out of position in the joint and then switch off. 24 seconds ish and I think last.

10th (?)

Event 6: Atlas Stone 130kg over Yoke 48"

Had a pb of a 132kg stone to 53" and hadn't practiced stones, thought at this height I could get a couple of reps and did. 2 reps, but just didn't have the energy to lap for a third attempt. The first rep was clean and the second needed a push.

Finished 9th, two points off Ed in 8th. Hit my expectations and was happy. Enjoyed the day. Thanks again to all who competed, organised and spectated. I will do next year and improve on this.

Edit: also did a chest session when I got back to Crewe.

Thanks Trav and Oli.

Thought I'd use my suit post comp to see what I could get.

Suited Deadlifts
Bar x 12rdl
Bar x 6rdl
60kg x 3
100kg x 3
140kg x 1
Suit on straps down, belt on
140kg x 1
180kg x 1 straps down belt on
200kg x 1 straps up from now belt on
220kg x 1 suit and belt
230kg x f - the suit was ludicrously tight and just didn't give it much.

After all the effort I pulled the same suited as I did without on Sunday, therefore I think I am going to sell the suit, I don't really like using it.

Cleans
Bar x 5
Bar x 3
40kg x 5
60kg x 3
60kg x 1 with a s**t split jerk
60kg x 2 from hang
60kg x 1 failed second cause it slipped out of my hands (lost the hook grip)

Bit of abs.
