I’ve been pushing hard recently and seen some good gains, I’m fitter, on a better diet and climbed strong. This week however I’ve been knocked sideways by work, in the last three days I’ve worked more hours than I haven’t been in work and as a social worker it’s almost guaranteed to be a strain. But that’s what makes me an average climber, there’s many things come before my climbing. I just wanted to share this as I don’t want people to think I don’t have responsibilities and things just go ok. Sometimes life is bloody hard, especially for the kids I work with
Hope you’re all ok
Im so sorry, I went to Stanage, it was sunny, I climbed and didn’t take any pics. It was great to get the trad rack out and put a few routes up. I’d forgotten what it was like to trust a new belayer but we went with Nat’s friend, Peggy. Which is far more scary when you know she’s lead 8a before. Although it is nice when she says you lead something hard.
Here’s the logbook from yesterday
OK ok I know it’s nothing hard but I am the average climber
Bring on light nights x
My Mrs has made an instagram blog to show our Campervan build you can follow on Instagram @campervambulance or click here
Starting work on the ambulance so it’s all a bit quiet but with the weather picking up outdoors will be coming soon.
I did however win this….
We’ve been looking for a van for a while and have found an old ambulance. We’ll have updates soon!
In other news I got back into the 6c+ / 7a territory on lead, cruised the v4-v6 circuit at the Depot and have had a generally healthy week.
Hope you are all having little breakthroughs yourself
So I’m trying to be a little more focused on improving my bouldering. My lead climbing has definitely suffered though. I’m trying to do something every day to improve or maintain my bouldering …. including my now weekly yoga. I even made it outdoors to Birchen Edge in the Peak District, UKC logbook here
I’m also trying to build in little things like extensor exercise and my indo board
I may also have eaten a LOT of cheese
Spring is here. Be positive all x
Training begins NOW
I’m determined to go back stronger, fitter and prepared
