So, I probably should have gone climbing this morning. However, I have 3 really good reasons as to why not: On Friday I went as usual, but went bouldering instead. It’s been ages since I bouldered properly, and as a result I really _really_ ache. Diane (who came second in the uk womens championships!) was showing me how to do some of the routes on the overhanging wall which did most of the damage I think The above hard work…
I just did the first test of the 100 push ups program. I was expecting to manage about 20 or so being as I used to have to do push ups as part of my Long Fist Kung Fu training. Turns out climbing is good for push ups, as I managed 40! Guess this sets me well on the way for the 100, and puts me at level 4. So, week one starts on Monday!
Today Jim and I broke ourselves on a 7b in the Furnace. It’s a blue with orange tags and it’s evil. The first third was hard but possible, but as you pass that it becomes very very hard. I’m covered in scratches and scrapes from quite a few attempts!
I just signed on to do this thing: Wish me luck 😀
The climb: The injury: ps. I totally screwed the omelette up! Damn.
