3 weeks out, Day 2, AM deadlifts, PM squats

This morning's session was very abbreviated.  Everything felt super tired so I took it easy and tried to loosen things up.  Once the light snatch grip deadlifts finally did the trick, I worked up to an easy triple with 455.  I was going to do 3 sets of 3 but the first set was well grooved but felt just stressful enough that I decided I would quit while I was ahead.  I had planned on using next week's vacation as a deload but it seems that the previous month's work is making the choice for me.

Before this evening's session, I watched my Toronto Rex Powerlifting Club teammate Trisha Boyle lift in the IPF Open Worlds in Denver via internet stream.  She had a fantastic meet, setting competition PR's in all three lifts and the total.  She also broke her own Canadian total record by 17.5 kgs.  I had hoped her performance would inspire my squat workout but there wasn't anything in the tank.  I worked up to a single with 455 and some back down sets and shut it down early.
