Jerk 1-1-1-1-1-1-1

Today I felt pretty poo-tastic but managed to get myself to CF anyway. I'm really wanting to get back to going 5 days a week but it's just hard right now with my schedule. Swimming will end soon and things will calm down and I can get back to being a MUCH better teacher, but right now for the moment I've sort of "embraced the suck" so to speak.

But I got to CF today, and that's what counts. I saw jerks and should have been uber happy, but my legs were still really bothering me from Sunday. I was walking with a limp because my left leg was so sore. I felt poo-tastic the whole time because I couldn't get my leg strength underneath me. But even feeling poo-tastic I was able to go like this.

65 X 5
85 X 1
105 X 1
115 X 1
125 X 1
130 X 1
135 X 1
140 X 1
145 X 1 (F)
145 X 1 (F)
145 X 1 (F)

I was really upset that I couldn't get 145. I was so close on all my attempts, but I just couldn't get my legs under me to push it up. I know I have 145 in me, perhaps even 150 and I'm sort of upset that I couldn't do it. Andrea did an awesome job and hit 145 and has the jerk record now which actually bums me out a lot more than I'd like to admit. I'm not good at many things and it's nice to see my name at the top from time to time. I know records aren't what's important, but still. It's sad to let that one go. 140 it is for now.... :(

Well, in my opinion 140 is pretty darn awesome. If I could jerk 140# I would tell everyone I know. Heck, I would tell people I don't know. I would introduce myself by saying "Hi, I'm Tami. I can jerk 140 pounds." I might even dispense with the "Hi, I'm Tami." part and just run up to people and say "I can jerk 140 pounds." At which point they would probably call the cops and slap a restraining order on me... but that's probably just me.

But seriously, that's some strong stuff. Good job.
