+1 to that.

Powder day at Vail. 18K+ of vertical and I am whipped. We spent the day in Blue Sky Basin and China Bowl. The resort has gotten close to 30" over the last 4 days; it was hard to find a place where there wasn't powder.

44 days until the record attempt at the Arnold
86 days until the World Cup in Tokyo

Rowed 1k to warm up.
Did 1/2 my mobility and stretching.
Snatch Practice
5x45#
5x95#
5x125#
3x155#
6x 175# (missed all six, was getting increasingly frustrated, could've ruined years of training if I'd got all the way frustrated and kept going, finally cooled off)
1x155# (always finish on a make0

Back Squats
3x45#
3x95#
3x145#
3x195# (I started to feel like I was punishing myself for missing 175# repeatedly on the snatch. I lost perspective that 175# is my PR and I've only done it once so it's okay to miss it six times)
3x245# (still felt like I was flogging myself for the misses, I don't normally feel that way)
3x295# (started to feel stupid)
1x345# (I knew this was a bad idea but I did it anyway)
loaded 400 on the bar (well above my PR)
stared at it, regained control, unloaded the bar, sat and thought.

Did the other half of my stretching and mobility and came home.
Tomorrow is another day...

@Cliff, thanks.

Thursday January 21, 2016

1 full month with no Diet Coke, all the headaches are gone and everything tastes different.

Had the grumpus all day, likely because it was the 6th day in a row where the UV index was -1 or lower all day here in Cleveland. Can't wait for the upcoming trip to Florida

Rowed 5k in 30:28
Walked forward, backward
shuffled left, right
karaoke left, right
stretching, mobility

Concerning yesterday's 0 for 6 at 175#....
Once upon a time I lifted b/c I liked lifting. I liked feeling strong and fast. I liked being good at something. It was fun to go to the meets and swap stories with the other guys and share a good hard effort. Then a little while ago I started caring about breaking the Ohio record for my age/weight. That changed everything. I used to lift some weight, and if it felt light I put more on and if felt heavy I took some off. Some days I never actually wrote down what weight I was doing, I just did 20 or 30 reps by feel and left knowing I'd done my best. That stupid record changed it. So, there's 43 days until the Arnold, where I am going to attempt to break the record. I've decided that if I get it I get it and if I don't I don't. I'm not going to let the record define me anymore. Chasing numbers is an unhealthy thing for me.
