Strongman Event Day - 3 Weeks Out Nationals/5 Weeks Out England
I am currently training for The 2014 North American Strongman (NAS) National Championship as well as the Strongman Champions League (SCL) England u90kg. NAS Nationals will be held Oct. 4th & 5th in Reno, NV and the Strongman Champions League will be held Oct. 18th in Southampton, England. I'm also adjusting to raising a new baby boy while still working, training and living life.
I had a pretty good training day yesterday. My top end log set I wasn't super happy with as I got out of my groove and the log got out in front of me. I had to step forward under the log and strict press it to lockout. It does happen sometimes, but I don't like when it does.
I was very pleased with my medley runs. My conditioning is great and speed and transitions are on point. Usually medleys like this aren't my stronger events, but that's not the case this year. I've made a focus over the past couple of years to make my weak events my strong events. Going into Nationals this year is the first time I've felt I don't have a "weak" event. They are all my strengths.
