First event yesterday was a deadlift lockout and hold for time.
The next event was the overhead press, which I've always done fairly well at. I got 11 reps with 185 in 60 seconds.
Again, I attempted the weights for the heavier weight classes just to see for myself if I could still do it. Doing this doesn't earn me any extra points or anything but it's fun and helps me keep my adrenaline going throughout the day.
Third event was the Medley. Now this was fun!
And the final event was the Truck Pull. This year's truck was the heaviest I've ever pulled. I think somebody said 48,000 lbs but I have no idea what it actually weighed. It was fucking heavy though. I told my brother that I would do pushups after diving for the line. I was hoping to get 100 but got nowhere even close. This truck was really hard to get moving and I think I let go of the rope a bit too early. Truck pulling is always a fun event though.
So all in all, despite a few personal disappointments and realisations that certain areas need a shitload of work (grip and overhead) I had an awesome time and can't wait to do it again.
And I'm going to admit that posting this one is just purely self-indulgence. To be perfectly honest, unless I'm looking at pictures like this I have no idea that I'm that ripped. When I look in the mirror, the guy in this picture is not who I see so, yeah, I think it's fucking cool that I actually look like that. I won't forever so I might as well enjoy it while it lasts.
So there it is. Another trophy for the shelf and now it's time to start training for the next one.
