Do you remember the time I knew a girl from mars? I don’t know if you knew that…
No hang on not that, that’s just my brain filling in the start of a sentence with song lyrics. It does that, I can’t stop it.
Do you remember the times I got a 100kg deadlift PB, then got injured / ran a half marathon / got distracted and lost some strength and each time I had to build back up to 100kg?
I worked my way up to a PB of 112.5kg during lockdown (:-D) but 100kg was still a huge mental block for me. It seemed such a milestone, and one that I had been working towards repeatedly so often that the fact that I had beaten it didn’t seem to register.
Until Saturday that is…
On Saturday, I deadlifted 100kg for reps!
5 reps, 3 times to be exact 😀
Ok, to be really exact, 3 x 5 plus one extra so mark could take a picture to prove it. A picture that I had to convince myself not to hate so I could post it…
Yes, despite being super pleased that I can lift 100kg, I am still fixating on the way I look doing it. Well, I am until I give myself a good talking to and look at the weights I am holding for a while!
So where next for my deadlift?
Next goal 120kg, then the world!!
