This past weekend I partook in a local partner fundraiser competition and I’ll tell you what…. it felt DAMN good to be back on that floor. This was the first competition I’ve done since having knee surgery a little over a year ago. Your adrenaline pumps, your mind turns off and you find levels within yourself you never knew you had.
First event – 2 rep max power snacth. Considering my 1 rep max squat snatch sits at 135 I didn’t have high hopes- maybe 115lbs. 3..2…1…go! Blew through 115 and hit a 125 touch and go power snatch! Damn… I even impressed myself.
Thats only one example of all the things I did that day, and holy crap it felt good. And the BEST part…. the next day I felt just as good. No residual pain or swelling. No re-injury.
I would be padding my own ego if I said I was ‘back’, but it feels good to compete and truing injury free. What will the future hold. Who knows?
All I know is ‘damn it feels good’
