 Notes: Woke up feeling excited and nervous for OPT training.  Felt well rested but had some feelings of self-doubt going into it.  I know already that this is going to be my biggest struggle.  During testing I PRed my snatch which felt great but my Clean and Jerk felt weak and I hit my previous PR.  After OPT I was dreading the rest of my day because I have to work a double which is always exhausting.  Work was exhausting and by the time I got home I was completely wiped out.
