… and we’re back!
I realised today, that this year I have climbed more in the great outdoors than stuck in a climbing gym. This is big, and I mean epic. I have never been able to say that before, and I say a lot of things.
Could be the totes-amaze weather, or the easier access to a car. Could just be that nothing compares to the feel of proper rock. I am still a total scaredy-cat, but that’s OK with me. A quick panic half way up is not unusual to make sure I am tied in properly, even if my knot has been checked, twice. In retrospect, I did get halfway up a route once to find I hadn’t tied in at all… We’ve all been there though… haven’t we? right?
I have, however, decided that roadside crags are not for me. Thank you, but no.
The plan: Super-set me today, hitting the legs and butt!… only in a good way… Warm up, not really a problem since it is about 30degs out there, then:
4 circuits of:
- Deadlifts x 8
- Single leg step up x8
Then, 4 circuits of:
- Straight leg deadlifts x 8
- Barbell bridges x 8
