I think this might be the best photo of me anyone’s (I’ve) taken in a long while. It’s raining, unbelievably windy, cold, and my bus is taking AN AGE to arrive. But I’m grinning like an idiot because I’ve just smashed my #deadlift #PB, and hit the hundred.
It’s only an extra 2.5kg on my last PB, but it feels like such a massive milestone. When I first started big lifting in May, I was thrilled with a 77.5kg deadlift. I mean that’s an actual adult male, right!?! I couldn’t imagine getting to 100kg. But today I did it.
I’ve done lots of things I’m pretty proud of. My VO career, dealing with PND, co-creating a pretty awesome child, changing careers in my 30s. But you know, I never thought I’d be this person. This whole process, and the 100kg milestone, is right up there. And I’m only just getting started.
