Today’s Press session brings “light 5’s week” to a close.

Overall a solid session with not much to report. Things moved well, felt good.

Next week: 1+ week. I must admit, the thoughts and numbers intimidate me a bit given it’s 1’s + PR, and then Joker sets. But I’m smiling about it. A little bit of fear here is good. It mean I’m pushing myself into discomfort, and that’s how I’ll get better. I have to remember that it wasn’t too long ago the weights I threw around today while yawning once intimidated me — and now, it was boring. 🙂
