Lazy boom slackass
I did not climb for ummm…, let’s say quite for a while. Instead I slacked and my head, which does not work in office, did not work in climbing area either. At least there it took liquids through and controls extremities in the unusual body positions on the walls.
So it was not a big surprise when today I really sucked at climbing. Well, I did number of very old 6a/6b traces and quite recent 6a+, but fell quite miserably on the another trace on-sight. It was more complex though, I expect 6b/6c. But still I fell all the time except maybe several places there.
Helped new girls to climb on 6a+- they were not excited about the trace though. But they did not really know that all traces in skala-city are lowered by at least one letter or more, so in other places it could be 6b/6b+. It is not really an easy excercise to climb such traces on-sight, although I was able to complete 6b in skala-city from the first start once. Usually I can do that for 6a/6a+ only in its local meaning.
Decided that I need to make more regular trainings with the strong physical part. Football match and 20-30 kilometers on the bicycle once per week is not enough – it is not even a warm up. Real sport must be painful, it forces body and brain to ‘reload’ and start to really work compared to being stuck in the usual slackiness.
Starting from the next one I will make physical exercises a major part of the training for at least one month. Couple of hours in gym and I will unlikely be able to climb something more or less complex, but will try.
Things promise to be very interesting because of restarted physical trainings. And it can not be uncool!
