My first weightlifting meet back will be at Freight Engine Crossfit in Santa Fe, Tx on August 9th and we weigh in at 9 am. If you're interested in attending, please come! We will accept donations and we will be lifting, hanging out, and eating food! This meet will be a qualifier for the University National Championships in Ogden, Utah. I'm excited to lift weights but, not to take classes again. Oh well. At least I'll be less stupid than I was before the class, closer to a degree AND hopefully, I'll break some records.
Training is going really, really well. I feel like I am in shape to hit personal records by the time the University Nationals comes around. I am also hoping to break the University National records.
Just like I did when I couldn't compete at the 2013 World Championships, I trained and prepared myself in training to be ready to lift big weights at the same time as the Pan Am Games. I did a 271 total at a local non sanctioned weightlifting meet and when I found out what the winning Snatch was from Pan Ams, I was determined to do it for a double. Here it is:
The only thing that has really been racking my mind lately has been the President's Cup in Russia. It is essential to my eligibility to qualify to get invited. I have been waiting almost a month to hear if I get to go to the competition. It is one of two competitions within my time frame I need in order to be eligible to compete at the Olympics. If I don't get invited, my Olympic Journey for 2016 is over. I can still lift and accomplish my other goals but the Olympics... not so much. Here are a couple things that sum up how I will feel if I don't get to attend the meet:
Also, I have been considering moving back to the OTC by the time October or December rolls around. :o Ok bye!
