I'll be back!

This is my last post before I leave for NZ. To say I am excited is an understatement, and packing my Australian tracksuit and t-shirts today has really brought the reality home. I am going to lift for Australia. OMG! I feel like a kid before Xmas.

My last week of lifting has gone very well and my opening lifts are as follows;

  • Squat 110kgs

  • Bench 70kgs

  • Deadlift 127.5kgs

I have done all these lifts many times in the past month in training and I am confident of a good start. I also have a new breathing technique that is providing more stability and leverage, and while I am not keen on adopting new techniques so close to a comp I believe it is a very positive change.

I will need to put some work into making weight, but I am in range already 3 days out so I feel relieved about that. The only new component for me will be the flying, but I have my upper & lower body skins and flight socks and heaps of green tea bags with me. It is only 3 hours from Brisbane to Christchurch so the impact will be a few hundred grams at worst. I need to finish packing my bags and I am ready to go....I feel ready

One last thing before I leave and that is to thank all my friends here on blogger. There are so many and I would hate to miss any names in my current state of excitement so to all of you......

I will get a message to someone on Thurdsay to let you know how I lifted.

Anything can happen in a competition, but I am well prepared and focussed so BRING IT ON!!!!

Hi Lisa,
I've been MIA for a little while and haven't kept up with everyone. Wishing all the very best for Thursday! I know you'll do fabulously. Can wait to hear the results.
