So it's my first day back to the grind after a proper week of rest following the British Classic. It's not exactly the Camp NF Powerlifting Championships, but I still managed to take fourth in the 63s for the third year in a row. I couldn't have done better in terms of positioning but my second squat was so easy that I'm frustrated about the screw-up with my third. Still sitting around 382 Wilks, which is frustrating. I'd like that easy 400. That nice, round, shiny number. So on with the quest! I'm waiting to have it confirmed, but it's very likely that I'll have another competition on Saturday, 3 December in Cardiff (along with @TeeCam and, hopefully, our coach) so the goal is to get that 400 Wilks there. I'm also probably somewhat over my weight class at the moment (not stepping back on the scales until I've given my body a week to settle after last week's cheese and beer binge) so getting back to a controlled diet is key! In the midst of all this, I have the Edinburgh NF Meet-Up next weekend! Anyway, here are the general goals: Do my gorram accessories. We all know I'm bad at it, so the goal is to give myself a point for every time I successfully complete an accessory session and reward myself with some form of ice-cream-based indulgence if I do. This may involve Boozy Cow. Track everything and edge my weight lower. This isn't a tough one, but it's just generally necessary! I need to get my weight back down to a walkaround weight of closer to 63kg than 65kg so I don't have to even think about it in the run-up to a comp! Explore the dark side. I don't know if it will go anywhere, but I want to do some more work on sumo deadlifts. Last time I tried, I was pushed to go too heavy too fast so never really had much of a chance to get better at them. I just want to do some technique work and see if it goes anywhere. This may be pulled if Marc says I shouldn't do it. Organise stuff for the meet-up. I still haven't emailed @Steve to remind him about the meet-up for the NF blog emails or got in touch with anyone to ask if we can make up event-specific T-shirts again. I still need to get precise numbers for lifting so I can arrange appropriate numbers of instructors too! Basically, lots to do!
