Thanks for all of your comments and support guys, really do appreciate them. I was hoping I could do well and do everyone proud. I knew my bench was probably slightly off its' best right now, that's why I wasn't too fussed on the missed lift. It went up, I just couldn't lock it out. Apart from England beating the All Blacks it was a great day yesterday haha.

I'm going to have a few easy weeks and then I'll start thinking about getting ready for the Canterbury Champs around mid January. That meet is in April, I want a 330 squat and 440 DL for that one. Goals have already been set !!

You got it man.

I'll get round to checking up on everyone's journals soon, just enjoying spending some family time today so probably won't be on that much until the start of the week. Have a great weekend all 8)
