day 2479 – squamish drive

i was pretty bummed out the weather cancelled my tennis plans. instead of sitting around wasting my saturday, my friend and i decided to take a road trip up to squamish to pick up the plates another friend offered to lend me. it was a long drizzly drive, but it was nice to take shadow out for what might possibly be my last road trip with him. we got home and couldn’t wait to put the weights to good use – a one rep max kind of session. from the get go, i said i would be satisfied being able to deadlift one hundred and eighty five but i went on to attempt a twenty hundred and five which was a no go

day 1313 – border crossing 

it’s been a good but tiring oregon trip with long drives to and from portland. on my way home after many hours spent in the car, long day of competition and irregular and malnutritioned meals. i’m content with the results and my personal performance and hope that this will get myself back on track. this might be what i needed to reinstate my mind and body to get the grind going again. now that the competition is behind me, i must gear down and focus because march will be a crazy month

day 646 – checking in with the team

we successfully made it to portland double tree after a full morning and afternoon of driving and a lot of waiting. as i was driving southbound on i5, we saw a car going northbound that was covered in flames. my back is all tired out and stiff from the driving and sitting, but no time to lie down cause we still have to carry out our coaching duties until the end of the competition. tonight is all about getting ready and psyched for the big day tomorrow that starts first thing in the morning
