Week 11

Monday 27 April
Wii fit. Apparently my 'Wii Fit age' is 37. This is not good news, I'm 26. Will have another go and report back on (hopefully) drastic age loss.

Tuesday 28 April
Climbing wall 2 1/2 hours

Wednesday 29 April
Climbing @ Trent Bridge. Very fingery.
Ran down (1 mile) climber for about 1/2 hour before everyone decamped to pub.
1 pint, ran home.

Thursday 30 April

Friday 1 May
Drove up to Northumberland

Saturday 2 May
Routing at Bowden doors - 5 routes, VS-HVS.
Bouldering at Back Bowden Doors - got first 6a outside. Traverse, flashed.

Sunday 3 May
Kyloe Crag, routing. 4 routes HS-HVS. Led a S.
Kyloe in the woods, messed about on a 6b undercling traverse, Funs, but too battered to do anything.

Week 9

Monday 13 April
Slacklining for a couple of hours with V&M

Tuesday 14 April
Run, 3.5 miles. Flipping stitch again. Even after I made a special effort to concentrate on breathing, and trying to run sower. I think they may be linked to dehydration?

Wednesday 15 April
Climb down the Unit, 2-2.5 hours. 1/2 time spent on 15o, other half at 30o. Managed to do several warm ups on the 30o angle. Callouses hurt from the holds though. Endurance core workout. Amazingly no stomach muscle ache the day afterwards.

Thursday 16 April

Friday 17 April
Run: 3.5/4 miles. Made sure I ran slower this time, which paid off. Easily cruised the distance, no stitches or breathlessness - had more 'go' left at the end of the run (shame I had jobs to do so couldn't really push it). Pretty pleased with that.

Climbing wall, 2 hours. Knackered with sore fingers. Didn't get much done - no new ticks. Did some lock off and off set pull up training on the rings.

Tuesday 7 April
3.5 mile run after work. Still knackered.

Wednesday 8 April
Climbing @ the unit. 2.5 hours. Lock off and pull through practice. Exclusive use of tiny footholds. Felt strong!

Thursday 9 April

Climbing @ the wall, 3 hours ish. Nothing particular to report.

Saturday 11 April

3.5 mile run. Epic stitch - I hate getting stitches.
