The Pump #climbing
hey that’s me.
The Berry Rockfest Comp. date has been set for March 23th and it’s going to be raining for like the next week, so I’m taking it as a sign that this is the perfect time to start cross training again :)
Today I did a circuit of dead hangs on the Metolius Rock Rings (20 sec), 5 pull-ups, and 1 cycle of a forearm roller. Went through it probably 6 times. I also tried to run for the first time since the triathlon and barely made it .62 miles before my knee started to hurt like hell and I couldn’t keep going :/
Felt so good to get that burn. I’ve felt for awhile that I haven’t been able to really push myself too, like everything feels really easy and when I get to a move that’s difficult I just give up. It’s really frustrating. I’m hoping that pushing myself training again will help get me back in the mentality of pushing while climbing also.
Everyone plan on going to Rocktown in Lafayette, GA on Tuesday :)
I admire Johanna for her ability to wake up and just get out of bed like it’s nothing, I have to lay there for like half an hour first.

Look at her go!
It Sucks to Be You.
Geez thanks asshole jk lawl (;
I was SPECIFICALLY talking about you, I’m glad you got the hint ;)
Oh my jeeze can people stop getting engaged after being together for like 1 month. I hope it works out but wow eager to lose the v-card much?
Rocktown today was the shit! Only got on about half the list cause it was super cold (and when we got back to the car it started sprinkling a little so win for us).
The routes we did get on were super quality though. Warmed up on a really great route (Kurk the Roach V1), sent a hella hard V4 (Soap on a Rope), redpointed a route I had to leave last time (Double Trouble V5), onsighted another (Jug Surfin V4), and made hella progress on a longer standing project of mine (Pasty Faced Weirdos V4) and really know the beta now.
On Pasty Faced Weirdos there’s like a 4 foot blank section and you have to make the reach off a super tiny crimp with a high right foot. I couldn’t figure that sequence out the past few times I had tried it so I was really really excited when I reached the next sloper. After the sloper I had my foot on the tiny crimp and not really any hands to speak of, I was only still on by leaning in. All I had to do was get the top out but i couldn’t find the holds! All of the sudden my foot slipped and I came down HARD on my right heel from about 6 ft up, missing the crashpad by about 4 inches. Luckily there was no rocks right under me.
Ankle and foot feel fine now but I was pretty shaken/discouraged after being so close on something that had taken me so long to piece together. I tried a few more times so I wouldn’t leave with disappointment as the last thing that happened but that sloper was too pumpy to get past again.
Can’t wait to get back up there and get that problem and the others on the list!
ALSO AGAIN my sister messaged me on facebook and wants me to bring her some stuff her and her husband abandoned at my parents house when they left.
1) They haven’t talked to anyone in the family in over a year because they always feel that no one is on their side when in reality they’re just really really selfish.
2) I wish I could say that I’m surprised that the first time I’ve heard from her is because she needs a favor but I’m not.
3) She typically acts like she is very interested in our family history and even uses our grandmothers name in everyday life but I feel that she has no right to pretend like she an interest or to use our grandmothers name when she has ZERO interest in being a FUcking part of the family.
