I rarely get to fight for a weight. I either get it or I fail and I’ve always admired my friend and training partner Susan for fighting her way through tough weights.
I finally got a chance to fight a weight this morning. After needing four attempts at 150 plus 40 lbs of chains to get to depth so that Ben would let me add weight, I got to the big number — 160 + 40 (that’s 200, the magical, mythical number in my head). And while I have to, have to, have to work on depth — parallel isn’t going to cut it — I fought hard to come up and I won. So for today, I get to be a superhero.
