Saturday, 5/21 2 Weeks Out
Fingal Finger Speed sets – 190 x 8, 215 x 4
Conan Yoke Carry – 195, 285, 375
Stone over bar – 122 x 1, 175 x5, 165 18” x 1, 200 18” lap, no load
Events day went well today. I did some speed finger, first empty and then weighted. I felt strong and reasonably fast. I also learned that they are weighting the finger along the whole length and not just the end like I do, so I’m much more confident that I will handle this event well.
The conan style yoke carries were a struggle for me today. I couldn’t seem to get a good pick to save my life. Not going to linger about it, most other days have been solid.
Stones went very well today. I hit the 175# for 5 fairly easily. Then hit the 165# 18” stone that eluded me last week. It went up really easily today, so that made me feel much better. I got the 18” 200# stone lapped, but couldn’t quite load it. That stone is very smooth and I’m sure it won’t be a problem with tacky. Feeling overall very positive about Nationals. If I have the kind of day I’m capable of having, it’s going to be a show.
