This was the first time I have ever felt nervous on meet day and unsure of my openers.
403-44lb meet pr/CalAPF State Record
This monolift was very difficult to take the weight out of. The guy running the monolift also had a habit of trying to pull the racks back before the bar was clear of the pins. My setup was all thrown off and I could not unrack the weight unless I was directly under it which then caused me to be off balance when he pulled the racks. Acertain someone also got in my head this week about bombing and taking to high of an opener. I had never doubted my self and my opener until that conversation. Therefore, I am no longer allowed to talk to any Canadians within one month of my meets.

I know I should be happy with this but I am not completely satisfied with my performance. I was capable of so much more. My form was horrible on my squats and I know that my challenges there were all mental. At this point I know what I need to work on for next time and am anxious to get started. I am definately going to work on mental toughness some more and also on my dead lift.
A huge thanks to Todd the Bod, Cartwright, and Jesse. You took great care of “Team Chick”.
Ted, you worked your ass off this weekend and hopefully we made you proud!!!
