    Shangers - thanks. The meet was today (see post #21 or 22 for results).

    5 hours drives on the east coast are probably a lot more stressful then in the heartland. My 6 1/2 hour drive the day before was pretty easy. I stopped half way at a chain gym and did 12 minutes of very light cardio & went through a nice long stretching routine.

    I ate very clean on the road and drank A LOT of water (I was worried about my weight) which actually helps keep me from retaining water. I came in 5lbs under.

    I'm chilling in the hotel tonight and will head back tomorrow.

    Very true - it was very intense at our meet as well. I am going to remember the vibe & mentality when I train as well. When I was lifting in preparation for the meet - I was VERY aware of every pound I was lifting. Today I was so focused on the calls & technique I didn't even really think about what was on the bar.

    What a blast!

    Boston to Newark in 5ish hours probably equates to about 8-10 hours in the heartland. Traffic on I-95 through there is terrible.
