💥🥉in the Commonwealth Powerlifting
I had a bad squat, a bench I am happy with with and a deadlift BATTLE🥉. My third deadlift attempt was a 162.5kg pull which is: Just. So. Heavy... but now (of course) it has to be my new goal. I will post this video next! I am very proud to even have had this on the bar.
It's going to be a long one ... so if you have an hour read on. ➡️ This whole process has made me think about competition and when does competitiveness get too much? I came to South Africa wanting to place ... and I did but the slightest glimpse of silver, rather than bronze, and my priorities changed. I can't really control this, which is why I have this Instagram page; to track progress so when my mind takes over I can look back at what I have achieved. Emotions are so strong. Maybe the strongest thing we have? You can build all the strength in the world (mind, body, soul) but at the end of the day the way you feel has the ability to take over. I wanted silver, I got bronze. I fought. I failed. I tried. I am happy. It's all learning. It's all a process. This translates way beyond powerlifting. ➡️shout out to all #teamengland so far we have done ourselves proud! And a huge bunch of hugs and kisses to @izzy.lifts 💙 the best support ever.
Congrats to first place @j_nnamani and second place who put up a great fight (I am going to try and find her insta and update this!) Step by step we are all getting stronger!
