Week 1 of summer training

Day 2
Didn't do much today besides ran for 30mins
need to get into a better circuit of abs and other workouts
Was in the gym and didn't even climb
gotta get psyched again

Day 3
Went climbing outside on rope
Got on my project, and while hanging draws i fell in the same spot i was falling at a few days ago
Sent it second try today
Then got on a 13c/13d
got shut down! such a hard boulder problem off the deck!

Day 4
Went climbing outside on rope again
Same area but this time we brought Oreo out with us so we had to take the long way in
It is probably about 3 miles in, making it about a 6 mile hike in total
I got on 4 routes, 3 of which I flashed and the other I onsighted
When we got back home I ran for 30 minutes
And did a very small ab workout of 25 crunches and 25 toe touches
Did a good amount of stretching as well
Went to bed weighing: 146.5 lbs

Day 5
Woke up weighing: 144.2 lbs
Went to the climbing gym today to work
During some free time I did a small ab workout

Small AB Workout (30 reps of each exercise, back to back, no rest inbetween exercises)
- butt raises with legs out (it's hard to put a name on this one)
- toe touchers
- side to side (AKA sidewalk slams)
- crunches
- tuck ups

When I got home I did the small ab workout again
Even though it's so small it hurts after completing it!
I did a 30 minute run, followed by a 10 minute stretching session
By stretching so much I feel as if I'm getting more flexible
Went to bed weighing: 146.4 lbs

Day 1 of Summer Training

So, i've been talking about training for a while now!
Yet I never keep my promise to myself!
I need to do this for myself...

Day 1
I just took my last final exam for the semester and I figured it would be a great time to start that summer workout that I have been talking about for a while now...
I thought I would start off by climbing some at the gym
but when I got there I got more psyched to set a few problems
In the end I didn't get any climbing in
I came home and sat around for a while
I decided to go for a 30 minute run on the optical machine
After that I stretched out for about 5 minutes

I'll keep my blog up to date throughout the summer with my training and hopefully any competitions and trips that i'll be doing as well as daily trips to local crags!

Just cause it's HOT don't mean we can't get the train on!

Central Rock Climbing Gym Competition

I flew out to Boston this past weekend to attend a climbing competition
A rope climbing competition
The first that i've done in a LONG TIME!
It was a lot of fun!
Thanks to the setters and everyone that helped out!
Routes were awesome!
The format was good as well!
Psyched to do it again next year!
Here is a video of the event!
