"The past appears to be the present sometimes, and the present appears to be the past. And there is the future in mind, also, for all of us. But I personally find myself much better off not worrying about either the past or the future. Merely taking care of the present is all I can handle."
Excitement level keeps going up! …so does the Nervousness level.
Nice to be back from my family wedding over the weekend. Now I can go back to training these last few days before the trip.
Got in another 1000 feet of pitches last night, ranging from 5.11c to 5.13a, and a lot of pitches of off-hands, and finger crack. Endurance is feeling pretty good. Few more days of training left. Back to the gym tonight.
Im going climbing. Ive been studying all day. Its also been a week since Ive climbed last. Damn neck and shoulder injury. I can finally move my neck in most directions again. Just cant turn, or tilt to the right. But I need to climb. At least on 5.10s and 5.11s. Maybe a few 5.12s if Im feeling my neck is good enough. But damn, i need to climb! So thats what Ill do.
Training sessions in the gym are now REAL training sessions. They are still fun, but its not the silly, ‘maybe Ill climb this today,’ fun. Im in the gym for a purpose. Im there to get strong.
“No one cares if you send the purple and white 5.13a in the gym. Gym sends do not matter. They are just a way to train and get stronger.” - me
On that note, who needs to send anything in the gym? I climb till failure. Every move screaming, not sure Ill make the next hold, not sure Ill make the next bolt. Forearms screaming. Climb till failure.
Ive got goals in mind. I plan on accomplishing them.
