45s revisited

This week I have mainly been developing some boulders but there is still something I want to do up there before too many people find it. So I will tell you about my training session this week.

Went to the mill and made up some new moves followed by a beastmaker session. Main goal was to hang the 45 degree slopers for 30 seconds, after 4 attempts 25, 27, 23, I sat down and rested before 32 seconds. All very dull but it means I am getting stronger or fitter, this was my 4th day on a few weeks ago I needed to be fresh to get anywhere near this.

Went down to Devils Gorge last week, had a good session doing Be Ruthless sitstart, I tried this a couple of years ago with CJD before Hocking nipped in and did the FA. It was nice to be out and about in the sunshine after 4 days of boiling weather in the wall.

HOT soooo HOT...

Back in the wall now, its roasting. A big tin shed in the sunshine for 13 hours at a time, trying to keep up the keenness, but finding it very hard, was out of bed at 7.30 to squeeze some outside time in by going for a run. Now trying hard to do circuits in the wall and get fitter, weights later, don't think I will maintain it unless it gets cooler.

Went to the cave after work the other day, was keen for Lou Ferrino chipless, but even with lanterns at midnight it was still so sweaty. Decided to try Louie Armstrong a bit more, settled on the sequence I will use for the crux section. Time to get stuck into training for a bit my motivation to climb outside is faded at the moment.
