I woke up at 5:30am this morning. I was hungry and thirsty since I hadn't had water since breakfast the day before and I had only had a tiny chicken breast for lunch. Drove down to Allentown and found William Allen Highschool without too much trouble. And then the moment of truth.. the weigh in.. 217.7... nice. OK now its time to down the pedialyte and cram food down my throat. Ate a bagel, some jerky, some slim jims, etc. Ok feeling good. Blah blah blah... time to bench. I opened with 248... easy lift...moved up to 275.5 for my second attempt... not too hard.. then 281... up....up....slowly...up...up..oh god keep going.... GOOD LIFT! Breaktime... Jason Beck had a seminar in between the bench and deadlift. Ok deadlift time. Warmed up for the wrong flight! oy! whoops oh well... now I just wait. Ok time to grip it and rip it. Opened with 430...easy... moved up to 462.9... got it... moved up to 481.. GOT IT! I was uncontested AGAIN! So I got a medal for the bench and one for the deadlift. Overall I'm very pleased. The meet was run very well and I had a great time. Now its time to kick back and relax for a while since I don't have another meet lined up yet. Oh and since it looked like there was no current single lift deadlift record I might have set a record.. I have to check with the guy who does the records but it'd be nice to be able to say I set a record.. even if I was the first one.
