Yes, after 8 years here, I finally get to lift in competition at my home club. It was an early morning as I came in advance to help set up with the guys. Lifting was okay, but not great, given I lifted last week in Austria at the Grand Prix. I worked the second plateau as a side referee as well, so tired bunny afterwards. Today, I go back to the club this morning to help with clean-up, and then I leave for Brazil for a week for an academic research conference. Everyone keeps asking me to bring back some sunshine. And yes, we have another flood warning for rain today 🙁
No, I did not go to the European Masters this year, too expensive and bad timing for me in terms of work as I leave now for Brazil. I suspect others lifters felt the same way about being too expensive, as most of the active Masters lifters in Belgium were at my comp yesterday here in Brussels.
