Swam 500 yards in 11:12. Probably could have made the 800 for the little triathlon in August.

Now to see whether I can sit on a bike for a few miles (need to get a seat and setup that don't hurt my steel hip...)

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
@Tim, how's your neck feeling?

Wednesday June 18, 2014
Four days until the Master's Pan Am Games in Toronto.
Snatch practice up to 150#.
C&J practice up to 185#.
Just taking it easy, trying to visualize the lifts, visualize the event, get in the moment. Someone who knows me saw me concentrating/meditating and, after I was done, asked me how I was feeling, where my head was at. I thought about it, and I am reminded of how I felt in the days leading up to Ironman. Ironman was a ridiculous challenge that I set out for myself about 10 years ago. On the days leading up to the event my main feeling was "I earned the right to stand on the starting line with everyone else, and I am mentally prepared for whatever happens, a DNF, coming last, finishing in the pack, finishing on the podium. I feel substantially the same way today. I earned the right to be on that lifting platform. I trained and competed in the sanctioned meets and hit the Pan Am qualifying weight on a double PR day in Miami. On Saturday night maybe I'll go 0 for 6, maybe I'll hit a few lifts and finish in the middle, and maybe I'll have a great night and win. I'm okay with all three of those outcomes. A lot of sacrifice has gone into this. I've been rock climbing maybe 2 times this year (instead of twice a week), have golfed three times (instead of twice a week), have crossfitted maybe 3-4 times (instead of 4 times a week), and haven't seen friends or family members in too long to remember. Perhaps that's the "price" of competing. Perhaps that why it feels like "earning" a spot on the starting line, or in this case, on the lifting platform. Anyway, that's how I feel.
