It’s less then 3 weeks until my next Olympic lifting competition. This is the last chance to qualify for the American Open in Ohio. I know I can lift enough to qualify but doing so in competition seems to be a lot harder. The last 2 days of training were really good. Struggling with a few technical issues but those will just take time. Trying to put each part of the lift together at the perfect times seems to be quite difficult but I am going to get it. Just need…more reps, more time, and more determination. I need to always believe in myself, think positive thoughts even when I miss a lift, and put everything I got into each lift.
