On Wednesday, I cleaned 185 lb, squatted 205 lb, I’m still working on power-jerking 135 lb (that sounds dirty) and when I manage that, I’m going to start working overhead squats to pursue for a snatch- distant future. In the pool, I’ve made significant changes to my stroke and I’ve been working on gliding and taking 1 breath every three strokes (I’m doing gut busters, a lot).
It’s a little worrisome that I weighed in today at 201 lb, which is the most I’ve ever weighed. I’m trying to not freak the fuck out. I know if I step up my cardio game and keep lifting, I’ll eventually get to a 185-190 lean which is where I really want to be. If I had to run a 5k right now, I’d probably be hard-pressed to come in under 25. All this Cuban food is doing a number on me.
