There were lots of great snatch moments today. I had some of the best snatch quotes ever today!
Jerry- It's the snatch. It's not perfect.
Me- No, but it sure is fun to play around with.
After a minor coffee break...
Me- Gar will you put this away (referring to a barbell)? My hands hurt too much from the snatch.
Oh, *giggles* I love childish snatch humor!
Now if only my lifting would have been as good as my quotes! Flat out, today was stinky poo. No speed again, a lot like my cleans last week. As Jerry says, I wasn't opening my hips and getting to full extension. Drag nabit! This sucks! I hit 105 today solid, but the second I went to 110 I lost it all. No speed, no umpf! I actually got scared of a barbell today. That never happens! Have you ever had a moment like that? Where something that never bothers you suddenly does?
It was a total freak out for me. I was staring at 110 and all of a sudden I got Fran tummy! WTF? Who does that? why did that happen? No clues yo, no clues. All I know is that the danged bar got the better of me today. I mean, yes, I tied my PR but last time I had 110 up. I just couldn't lock out. So today I really, really wanted to hit 110. But I just couldn't. I couldn't help but wonder if maybe I should have slept in, and gotten more rest, but you know, again, performance on demand. CF says it. I should be able to produce, but for whatever reason today, that bar just got the better of me. Grrrr.... I will get you... oh yes... you may not know where, or where... but I will get you 110... watch your back. Sleep with one eye open....
