This is pretty much how I feel today. I feel like I’ve never lifted a day in my life. I didn’t sleep at all last night. It was a combination of nerves and the most horrendous thunder storm I’ve ever witnessed. The thunder was so loud it was actually rattling the picture on the wall of our bedroom. I won’t make you suffer through the multitude of scenarios that I played out in my mind while I was laying awake, but it was brutal. Every possible way you could flop at a meet. Hopefully, I’ll eventually get to a point where I trust myself to not forget entirely how to do exactly what I’ve spent the last six months doing. That day is not today though ; )
Tonight we will journey down to the great city of Elk River. I’m hoping to see some Elk and a river or two. Odds are I’ll only see the inside of the gym though. I’m going to stop at the grocery store today and get some food to eat during the meet. I have to be there at 7 am and probably won’t get done until maybe 3? It’s a long day, especially when you consider that I’m only actually lifting for about 4.5 minutes….if that. There’s a lot of warming up time in there. Then you wonder around and size up the competition. Unfortunately for me, I have to gauge it based on how much smaller the women are than me. Seems like the smaller they are, the more likely they are to kick my @ss. I know, it makes no sense to me either. It’s almost as bad as getting smoked by a pregnant lady, but not quite.
Anyway, my goal for tomorrow is to avoid one of these…..
I’ll try to post on Sunday or Monday to let you know how it went. Thanks for all your support! Think happy thoughts tomorrow ; )
