Yesterday I had some Physio treatment done on my knee to ease the patella tendinitis. Today I was really tired for my training session as I worked before. My legs were really sore from the high volume of squats. However I still had a good session. I will take tomorrow off then hit the weights again on Saturday. Dinner was deer steak cooked rare with carrots, parsnips, yams, potatoes, inside an acorn squash. Everything was delicious and healthy.

After a long deserved week off from training I hit the platform for the first time in 9 days. Didn't feel to bad considering. Had a bit of minor pain that hasn't worn off from the wear and tear of a long training cycle. I Started working on split jerks today as my cleaning power has surpassed my power jerking power. It feels pretty good. After training I had some Mahi Mahi fillets from Costco with basmati rice and spinach salad.

It's always frustrating to total on paper less than your last competition. Especially since it is not due for lack of trying or effort. Maybe I trained too hard and didn't recover enough. Maybe I just had a bad day. Whatever the case I snatched 126kg and clean & jerked 165 at this years Canadian Nationals. My personal bests are 136 and 170kg. So I was a bit off. However I did clean 175 kg but missed the jerk. It's a fine line between making a new PR and having a slightly worse comp than your last one. I will keep going and we will see what the next competition brings. Hopefully I can put the details together to make some new bests.

Felt like I was run over by a truck today. Worked through it. It was a light day. Light days help recovery more than taking the day off in my opinion. Keeps everything moving and circulating. And subsequent workouts are better after having a light session.
