This has been a fantastic day, mostly because I managed a 40lb personal-record on the deadlift today. This is a huge jump and I really didn't see it coming. The most exciting part about this is this means I now have a very, very good chance at placing 2nd at the Canadian National Powerlifting Championships, whereas prior to today I could only realistically expect to place 5th.

This means I now have a very, very real shot at getting to represent Canada in next year's IPF World Powerlifting Championships. This is blowing my mind, because I really wasn't expecting this. I barely even slept last night and I had no intention of even attempting a max until I finally got to the gym. Now, none of this is certain; it's entirely possible the competition this year will be much steeper than it was last year, but for right now I'm ecstatic and I really can't wait to compete again.

None of this likely means much for most of you, I get it, but just be happy for me, dammit =)

And just because, here's a video of a 78 year old woman deadlifting 225 for reps.
