After a slightly less than stellar week….I hit two new personal records tonight at the gym. I did 5 (one set of 3 & one of 2) Sumo deadlifts at 133lbs. The last time I was able to hit that was before Christmas for one set of 1. That’s an increase of 500% 🙂 I just set my mind to it. My legs felt good, my back felt good. Then up, up and away!
I was also able to do 10 double-unders (with a little hop in between, mind you), a skip jump where the rope rotates twice for every jump you do. I’ll have to work on eliminating that jump as I didn’t even realize I did it.
All in all…..a good night. Back to Olympic Lifting tomorrow morning. I over did it a bit this week, so my arms are pooped.
On another front, my friend Isabelle Després is training for the London 2012 Olympics. She’s going to be starting a conversation about sport. I put my name in the hat to be a guest blogger….stay tuned – should be out by the end of next week.
