Saturday's submission

Yesterday was not a good session, but that happens, so I have to get on with it. I was coaching in the morning and was pretty tired from work, so my expectations needed to be adjusted. I was able to Snatch 97 which is not bad, but I was unable to even get under 100 three times, which is something that has never occurred to me before. They were like crap high pulls. I had a petulant reaction and I could not get my mojo back. It is annoying when you tell yourself not to react and you do it anyway without thinking about it. Knowledge is knowing you are having a tiring day. Wisdom is having the composure to not react like a twelve year old girl who just got the wrong barbie for Christmas.
On a brighter note, my coaching is now finished for the season and on Monday week I am off to Bucharest until the Friday night to support Kevin D'Arcy and Cathal Byrd who are lifting in the Senior European Championships. I will train twice a day while over there, which will be the first time I do so for more than two days. I need to fresh for this, so I may only train three times next week and do a very light technique and flexibility session also. I will talk to Harry about it and he will give me the low down.

Great that you'll be in Romania Barry. You'll see some great lifting there, even in training hall which will only motivate you more to train hard!
