Miles and miles

Treadmill run today to check pace and distance, and I completed three intervals of one mile each at 5.2- yay me! Lifting today, squats 5 x 3 x 125, overhead press 3 x 8 x 60, 3 x 5 was hard last time so this is a lofty goal, bench press 5 x 3 x 85, power cleans 5 x 3 x 75, if that doesn't work I'll drop down and micro load, making them 5 x 3 x 72.5.

I think my mind holds me back at times when the strength is there. I watch videos of women squatting big weights and the thing they have in common is they appear to approach the bar so matter of factly, like "Oh sure, I'm going to squat 225 10 times, no problem" and then they do it. I need that.
