Saturday, 7/23 Lift Free or Die
This was my middleweight debut, and it was a very fun meet. Also, the first time I’ve done an all-women’s meet.
First event was a medley of keg press and the circus dumbbell. The dumbbell is my worst pressing event, but I do like pressing kegs. It was very strange for me to be competing as a middleweight and learning to listen when they called the group. I was literally the first competitor in lane 2, so it was weird for me. I started with the keg, and got 7 total reps. Not the speediest event I’ve ever done, but I tied for first.
The second event was the keg drop deadlift. I took a little longer than I should have to figure out the footing. I got all 6 reps in 15.88s, which was only good for second place, but it was my favorite event of the day.
The third event was the farmer’s walk. I need work on my turns, but I was fast enough to take first here. I look like I want to kill people when I farmer, but I really am very happy. Farmer’s walks are my favorite event of all time.
The fourth event was the country crush hold. I was annoyed with myself that I got 59.9s, and couldn’t make it to the minute mark, but it was good enough for the win.
The final event was the sandbag load. I was glad to be last, since I knew exactly what I had to do to win. I started off easily with the 175, then went on to the 200. I moseyed along to finish up with the 150, and leisurely tossed it up on the platform.
I really had a lot of fun at the meet. It’s always nice to see so many local strong friends around.
Now to decide if I want to buckle down and get myself ready for strongman corp nationals……decisions decisions.
