day 2167 – spiderman far from home

it was a very good day. i had good snatches and strong paused squats before catching spiderman far from home with friends. i redeemed myself from last week’s poor showing by working up to two kilograms shy of my personal snatch record. also feels good to add five pounds to my paused squats. i walked into the cinema feeling great and perhaps watched my favourite spiderman movie of all time. i thought his newest suit is the best looking ever and wished that i could have waited before buying mine. this one is probably one that i would rewatch once it’s made available for streaming
