So not been blogging due to works new internet policy blocking out blogs. So no blogging.
well I have now had a few days climbing outside and I have returned to the wall.
So what did I achieve?
I went to rubicon and repeated all my usual problems. I tried some new ones and got a good spanking
I had my first trip to the Tor .. I was epically spanked. It felt good ...
First visit I got on the lead wall and flashed a 6a (felt 5/+ish) I lapped it up down up. What felt better was the fact it was on the main overhang rather than the lead wall. I then got up a 6b (felt 6b+ ish) I had two rests working out the moves.
So my stamina is still there.
I tried the slab room and my balance was pretty good. I feel I am slghtly lacking in strength and a bit of power.
Well I am in training mode so I guess a load of time spent at the wall getting stronger and tring to read moves. Laps on the lead wall. Some lead falls.
Also I need to get some more outside bouldering to help me read moves better. Also I need to get on some trad in. My trad this year has not really improved. After a solid start to the year leading HVS constantly and feeling comfortable up to 5b ish.
Targets for the rest of the year?
E1!!!! more than one. Onsight
Three Pocket (f'n) Slab Fb 6A
Maybe even an E2?
What should I change?
Well I have recently been dieting and cutting down on my beer intake. Which was barely possible. I have also been eating more fruit and veg.
One example is I was in Frankfurt away on business everyone had a steak. I chose the duck breast in a mango sauce with mixed veg and I ate all the veg ... shit!! What is wrong with me? I chose duck as it had veg with it over a big massive steak ... mmmm meat!
How can the people reading this help?
Not convince me to eat curry!!
