So a week or two ago a took a quick work trip to Moab (yeah no one believes me that it was a work trip). Between meetings RR and I got in some time on the Big Bend Boulders. This was exciting because I was there back in October when I was just getting back into climbing and now I got to get back on the same problems again. Felt strong and had a real blast on some beautiful face climbing on just-tall-enough boulders.
Then last week The Girl was in Provo for her sister’s birthday so I met up with “Little A” my sister and the latest zoob she’s wrapped around her finger. Turns out this kid’s a really strong climber and a RIOT. I did a few burns on three 12a routes and while bouldering hasn’t done too many favors to my endurance, I was happy to find that the moves weren’t out of the question. I’m confidant that with a couple sessions to figure out the beta I could send all three. Very exciting.
So I was inspired to start working on some V4/5’s at the Front, along with two minor steps up in my training for the rock.
I’ve been good about getting in about two sessions at the gym per week but I want to step it up a bit.
3 1 hour boulder sessions, with time on the system board, in the cave and on at least one V4/5 project per week and cave time cave time.
2 Hangboard sessions (same days as above)
3 Morning Yoga sessions
3 Core/Pushup/Pullup Sessions
I’ll have to work that out a little better so it makes more sense.
I’m also going to try to get in one trail run per week as a break from the bike.
Further on the topic of training for climbing Dave MacLeod has a great post on his latest project and how he’s gone about training for it.
