Thanks LtL and Brute. The next opportunity to compete is the Nationals in April but I think I'm going to hold off until next year for them. 2013 will be the last year I'll be able to compete at National level as a Junior and I really want to put a competitive total up and also need the money to get there. So I will compete at any regional meets definitely but they seem few and far between. My main focus right now is to get as much as possible from my training over the next 12 months.

I'll be checking everything from now on, I didn't want to get back under that bar after the miss, that's the first squat I can remember that I've ever missed and it knocked my confidence for 6! Maths aside, the spotters did a good job through the day and made some good saves.
