Weight didn't feel too light today, but I decided that I was going to gut it out anyway. Had a hard time keeping any kind of arch in my back, and it shows. I'm sure I'll feel that tomorrow and for a few days.

My contact almost popped out on my last rep and I got some nice blood freckles on my face. Considering I'm 17lbs lighter than before my last meet, and only 25lbs below my best estimated max at that bodyweight, I'm doing okay.

I decided to stop the RDLs because it just felt like it was more stress than necessary on my lower back in one session.

Think I've got my eye set on USAPL VA States on November 7th. I just checked the calender and realized that this is in 3.5 weeks. Damn, didn't even realize it was that close. At least making 181 would be a breeze.

Oh, and I suppose I should start posting some pictures soon in preparation for the bodybuilding contest. Perhaps I will.

sleepy time,
Matt McGorry
