Deb, hope you feel better soon!

[B][U]May 6[/U][/B]
Ran 4.3 miles -Mile 1 at warm up pace of about 11 min/mile, mile 2 a bit faster at 9 min/mile, miles 3 and 4 walked 50 sec at 3.9 mph and finished the mile at 8 min/mile, then did a warm-down. The last two miles averaged a 8:24 min/mile pace and is what I am thinking of doing for the half-marathon next weekend, which would give me a 1;50 time. Still trying to decide between run/walk and a straight run. Will experiment a bit more on Sunday over a longer distance. HR was in the upper 130s at the 8 min/mile pace and otherwise in between 110-125.

[U]After Work[/U]
10 mins of jump rope practice
10 mins of mobility work and dynamic stretching
Power Cleans: 3x110#, 3x130#, 8x145#
Deadlilfts: 10x135#, 5x185#, 3x220#, 3x250#, 8x285# (could gotten 10, maybe more, but took it easy before next weekend's race to avoid injury, felt strong though)
DH Pull-ups: 5, 5, 11

Happy mother's day to the moms here.

Yesterday, May 7th participated in the Southwest Regional Championship of the USPLA. This was not my first competition but my first with this federation. It was one big learning experience. This was an open competition and mostly all raw. I saw some incredible lifts. My problems began when they announced that deadlift competition required knee high socks. I ran to the local Dollar Store but only came up with high sweat socks. Finally a guy in one age group lower than me just gave me a pair---and coached me thru the meet. Thanks Bob. He set a North American record for deadllift. Given all the divisions, I was lifting from 10:15 AM to 3:45 PM.

Results: Back Squat: 350, 365(f---did not wait for judge's signal to re-rack), 365.
Bench: 272, 292 (f---did not wait for signal to re-rack) 292(f--moved feet and moved too quick off my chest, need to wait for judge's signal).

Deadlift: 472, 486, 502 (f---could not lock out).

Gold medal for master's 65 +.

1123 total for a very long but informative day.
