So, it’s another of those “I fell off the Wagon, I’m getting back on” posts. Except it isn’t really, I think.
I dunno. I broke my thumb, which kinda messed stuff up a bit, but still went to Font and climbed with it. When I got back, work was really busy, and I just couldn’t get straight back into it… So, here I am, not quite in shape, getting frustrated at not being able to climb stuff that should be easy.. again..
So, the deal.
I must run twice a week and climb at least twice a week each week until I go to Font (again!) second week in September. Woot! Started this last week with today being the end and have done 2 (short) runs and climbed twice, once outdoors at Over Owler Tor (which consistently kicks my ass) and tonight up at the Climbing Depot in Leeds, which is pretty awesome.
Turns out their summer bouldering ladder is on, so we bought a tick sheet and set out on it. 30 climbs, ranging from V0 to V11, with points in a 10/7/5/4 attempts scale. I scored a rather respectable 173 points, far more than expected especially with my thumb often crapping out on me when climbing at the Climbing Works. I’m kinda hoping that this might have been something of a little milestone from a recovery point of view.
I’m pretty darn tired now, that was 4 hours of full on sweaty bouldering.
