Tonight I am paying tribute to my coach.

I had a really tough session today, and in fact in my eyes it was a total failure. It was my second last Deadlift session and I struggled - seriously struggled getting 125kgs to lock out for 2 reps. Rod dropped the weight to 120kgs and when I feared worse on the next set he called it a day.

I knew as I was going to have a tough session as I was tired, hungry and generally fatigued all day. I have dropped some weight in the past week and PMS is upon me, and I didn't manage to disconnect from work etc etc. So while I feel like a failure now, I am sure the morning will give me some good perspective. I hope. When I walked back into home I was greeted by the image of my Aust track suit hanging on the door and I did smile a little.

But back to Rod. His patience and understanding of my moods and energy levels and requirements are wonderful. He has been my support over the past 2 months, and I know he will be 100% focused on me over the next 2 weeks and 1 day. Thanks Rod.

I think it might be time for a small treat meal and a hug from hubby.

I know I can do this................
