The video above documents my thoughts around my performance at the 2021 ABPU European Championships. I could have talked for hours but limited myself to three positives and three areas of improvement:
The people – so thankful for all of the amazing support I received – the powerlifting community is amazing!
I got through it – I could quite easily have bombed but I made it through.
My PB on the deadlift – over the moon and there was more in the tank.
Don’t pig out the night before and ruin myself diabetes wise.
Don’t change what I do day in day out in training to try and nick an extra ounce of strength – nearly cost me the comp.
I’m probably at the stage where I need a coach now, so one to think about over the next couple of weeks. Update: I’ve now found my coach and will be working with Tom Sheppard from Phoenix Performance – he and the team were such a massive help on the day and I can’t wait to get started.
