So here we are the weekend of the Arnold whooooo hooo so apart from this being the first UK one it is hopefully going to be a great event to be at. In the last few weeks I have enjoyed training more than ever and I have started to feel like the forced Covid break is well behind me and I can now get back to full strength again. Hitting Masters 2 this year is another milestone in my Powerlifting journey. I was asked the other day about how do I keep going after all these years. For me it is still the same I want to better myself and now in a different age group it has opened up new challenges to me. Goals and titles are there to be taken. I don’t feel any different to when I was 30 or 20 tbh. My strength well was still on the up and I do feel that will carry on again from here on in. I have a great work, rest balance and that give me time in all aspects of my life.
So back to the job at hand this weekend. Firstly to make weight and then it is into having fun at the event. Masters lifting is less stressful than the open and that allows us to enjoy it and have fun. For those who are masters and unsure you should try it out. Now I have had at times had a different outlook on competing. Nerves still play a big part in what comes with comp day and let’s hope that never stops. It is a big driver for me and something despite how prepared I am I still have. Dealing with them on the day is something that can be hard, I do put myself under some pressure to do good and that’s because I don’t like to let people down. My lovely partner Michelle, my family and close friends all of who are so supportive of what I have done and continue to do.
