Well, the week started off well. A run on Monday to get me started, left leg hurting a bit from a number of whacks I’d given it around my knee on the Sunday at the Works. On Wednesday off to the Works again as usual and this time attempting to finished the Black routes.
I managed it, even though my left foot kept slipping off the same hold on a particularly balance black route. Each time I’d ram the side of my knee into a hold…
This picture is as of Sunday so the bruising has come out somewhat! It’s stopped me running entirely this week since, as the swelling has made bending my knee painful.
I went again today and Andy and it attempting the new Wasps and Blues (both 6b – 7a). Both were nails. I think we managed 2-3? Ouch. I also went on to strip a nice piece of skin from my left shin on the first blue. Jeez that hurt when I got in the shower afterwards.
I don’t know why I bash my knees and shins so much in comparison to other people, or so it seems. It’s ALWAYS happening. I must be doing something wrong. :/
