Ok so this post was originally supposed to be about girly stuff like make up but... of course I forgot to save it and I don't feel like writing about makeup for an hour. It was a fun post, though. I'm such a dingus!
Anywho, I've written about a lot of other stuff lately but, not actually about my training. You see, I like to keep some of my training a secret. It adds to my aura of being sultry and mysterious. It leaves more to the imagination. It keeps you coming back...
Ok it doesn't do any of that but, I do like to keep some of my training to myself; good or bad.
So here' what's been going on that I'll let you know about:
*So far as supplementation is concerned, I have been taking casein and a carb/bcaa's mix, and both are working marvelously.
*I have created a few designs for custom singlets and I am in the works of having one of them created by the time the National Championships rolls around. I am really very excited about this project and I hope it takes off.
*I have been Back Squatting 200 kgs fairly regularly and I Front Squatted 180 last week.I am starting to Snatch 100+ more frequently as well as Clean and Jerking 140+. I haven't really been an athlete to train the lifts very heavy during training but, we're doing our best to change that to adapt to a new training style.
*I was training 3 times a day for a while but, I was getting tendonitis pretty bad so we backed off for a bit. Now we are doing two a days. We'll see if I resume three times after Pan Ams/Nationals preparing for the World Championships.
*I have applied for a couple of travel and training grants so I can go to an acclimation camp somewhere in Europe before the World Championships.
A couple of more personal updates:
* School is going really well. I got a B in my first class and currently, I am getting an A. I am working hard to maintain As and Bs
*I have a couple of public speaking engagements coming up that I am very excited about
*I am sad that my VCR is broken. HOW am I going to watch Lawrence of Arabia?!
*I have two pairs of Khakis now that actually fit. I'll look like a super Pro when I travel.
*I taught a Crossfit class recently how to snatch and will teach them how to clean and jerk. I like it a lot and it's a good way to work on my public speaking/teaching skills as well as help supplement my income.
*I found a really cheap store nearby to get all of my meat. I have 30 lbs of new meat in my freezer just waiting to get me stronger.
