Feeling pumped! Go optimism!

Yesterday I was a lazy ass. Literally. Instead of pilates and biking, I sat on my lazy ass, read a book, ironically, about fitness and watched Harry Potter for the ump-teenth time. I’m getting a shot of cortisone in my knee tomorrow morning and it’s making me quite ambivalent about working out until afterwards, when, assumedly, I will feel like some sort of Amazon, not a hobbly old lady. Anyway.

 

Today, I feel pumped. It’s a totally different day. I’m going climbing tonight, and instead of just screwing around on the walls and doing whatever seems free or easy, I’m going to go with some goals:

 

Actually lead climb something. Anything. Even a 3a. But get that top rope off.

Climb routes as fast as possible. I think too much, I need to move intuitively and just trust the hold and go.

Which ties into the third goal; get in some fall training. It may simply come as a part of goal 1 and 2, but I need to get over some fear of it.

 

All of these can reasonably take place in the 3-4 territory, which is good, because I’m covered in kinesio tape from the knee down, and don’t think I should be weighting it when it is super bent, last weekend I felt something pop which probably didn’t contribute to the overall knee situation. BUT.

Motto of the day is that you don’t always need to climb at your limit to get stuff done!

About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
