105X1X3
Touch and Go

~Another grind... here is 110lbs



Chin-ups

Everything felt great tonight.

Sorry - that was a really long press command! You should be great for Raw Nationals! I think you own 110!

Maura,
Looking at that press, the pause didn't seam long at all... under the bar, it was wondering what the hell? I can't thank you enough for all the help on the bench. You are a dream of a partner.

Fawn,
All is well with you I hope?! Don't fret and get your sleeps before the big day/s. I was inspired to plant some plants before I visited my folks in PA. Morris watered them... at some point. I can't yet tell if they are alive or in some state of suspended animation. Wicked hot here. I had the BEST time visiting with you all!! You and Aaron and your fine friends are so kind and easy to BE with!!

Katie,
Everything is great here in Minnesota! The weather is pretty nice... we will have to plan another BBQ when you are in town in August. Aaron and I had a really great time having you and Taikei over. Friendship came very easy and naturally.

Good stuff Fawn! Variable commands are a good thing in practice to prepare you for the big meet (I had to learn that the hard way).

You will do AWESOME!!

When is the BBQ? Jodie and I will be there again as it was awesome to meet everyone briefly last time and the midnight Z Health session was fun too (yikes I am a geek).

rock on

Gabi and Mike,
Thanks for your support! Hopefully I can put up something respectable at Raw Nationals. I will keep you both posted regarding the BBQ...
