A little while ago I posted about strong first TSC that I had registered to do…yesterday was that day.
After copious amount of alcohol and food over the Easter break I most deffo was not confident yesterday going to hybrid gym Belfast to compete.
Me and the ladies that had entered were all equally as nervous and wondering why the f**k we were putting ourselves through this…
After trying to run away about 14 times and being on the verge of boking crying and every other emotion available we finally made it to the small room with weights pull up bars and scarily big kettlbells surrounded by rows of chairs.
The first of the 3 challenges was the deadlift. The main one everyone wanted to push themselves in. You had 3 attempts at your lift, I started mine at 75 then 85 then went to 100kg.
Big jump.. I know.
the adrenaline definitely takes over and the amazing support from everyone around you pushing you on makes a real difference, I would never have went to 100 without the encouragement so I was absolutely delighted when I got it, new PB yay yay!
In my category we had to do a flexed arm hang for as long as possible, higher categories had to do wide grip pull ups and ones with weight attached 🙈
This was totally my weakest as my upper body strength is slightly horrendous so I only got 18 seconds
Poor I know.
So this is definitely something I need to work on! Some amazing strong girls were getting up to a minute and more! So cool seeing how strong people are!
Last but holy hell not least was a 5 minute snatch test with a 12kg kettle bell.
Other wise known as 5 minutes of fucking torture 😭😭😭😭
This was definitely the hardest for me, it takes it clean out of you especially when you don’t do much cardio… meaning none.
My aim was to get 100 and I got 117 so another PB for me. Also pleased I didn’t have to set it down
…just hung in the air for a while instead 🙊
I am absolutely buzzing I completed it and got 2 personal bests. After the freaking out before hand and the shaking like a leaf after it was all worth it….
All the ladies that completed it with me done amazinggggg and all the other competitors there were fab! It’s especially good seeing how strong the ladies are 😉
Me and all the lovely girls went out for food and drinks in Belfast after, so fab day/night all round!
Back to doing nothing and crying about the pain I’m in before returning to dreaded work tomorrow 😩 hope you gals had a lovely weekend! Lotsa love, AG Xxo
