8/17 lift power clean 2x230 deadlift 2x420
In some ways, I'm more proud of a record on a double than I am of a new record on a single. I finally moved up on the power clean for my double. I think I've been doing 225 for like 6 months or more. I stuck to my 5lbs on the deadlift, which puts me 5lbs off my single. The key I'm finding is to make sure I complete my exhale and start my inhale before I start descending for the next rep, otherwise I can't get in enough air while descending with all the weight and I end up feeling like I'm going to pass out.
I had to take the tests and qualification on Tuesday for the training I did over the weekend, so I didn't have time to workout that day. Also, I attended the Vespa information session with Peter Defty at Bull City Running on Tuesday night. I'll do a separate post to talk about that. I've been using Vespa when I run (although those runs have been few and far between lately).
