Sunday 4 January
Worked on both lifts today as my first competition is coming up in two weeks.
Snatch 50kg (Was sure I would get a new PR but as soon as the weight was bumped up to 50 I put my right knee on the ground on the first two attempts. Made the third one but then they wouldn’t let me add more weight.)
C&J 70kg (Easy but I pressed the weight out in the jerk so no new PR.)

Front Squat 50x5 60x5 70kg x 3 x 5 (should have gone for 70 x 5 x 5)
Bent over row 40kg x 8 x 3
Good morning 40kg x 6 x 3
Weighted dips 6kg x 6, 10kg x 6 x 2
Hanging leg raise 3x3 (left, both, right)
Behind the neck press 20kg x 10 x 3

And so. I’m sick…

Yesterday I started coughing a bit and today got worse. Constantly freezing, coughing up some soft “mucus-kind-of-thing” that surprisingly hurts like hell. Joints and muscles ache off course…

Got home at 15:45 and took a bath and then tried to sleep for two hours. Been sitting on the couch feeling sorry for myself for another two and thought I’d watch some k-1 and and type up this post.

So far I know of one co-worker, two relatives and my two year old son - for some reason he didn’t feel a need for whining on a public forum about it - who all got the same symptoms so I know what’s coming up. I should be good by this weekend I hope because my girlfriends brother gets married on Saturday and OL comp. is on the 18th.

Hope I can go to practice tomorrow.

Feeling a lot better today…the fever finally went down around midnight last night. Took some painkillers (paracetamol) an hour ago just in case and all that is left now is the cough and a really bad cold. I guess the flu-shot I got at work helped me recover because everyone else has had several days of fever and about two weeks of heavy coughing. The upper part of my traps feel a bit sluggish but I think I’ll be fine.

Practice starts in one hour. Hope they’ll let me train as I work late on Thursday so I won’t get any skill work then. I’ll work strength on my own though.

Getting really psyched about the competition. I know I won’t make many points for my team…I’ll probably end up with a total of 120-130kg at a BW of 73kg. But it’ll be loads of fun anyways.

Tuesday 5 January
Worked up to a 40kg snatch and a 70kg(PR!) clean & jerk.
Finished with clean pulls from 70 to 90kg.
Took it real easy today but at least I got some technique work in. The chough interrupted a few attempts but I felt pretty good by the end of the workout.
