So while the rest of the climbing world is embroiled in heavy handed debates of uncut footage, topping out, start holds and general ClimbX douchebaggery we're planning another trip. Fucking right.
Leaving for Chattanooga on the 18th of February and not coming back till the 27th or 28th.
I hate to say I've been training because when anyone says they "started training" it inevitably means they've just been climbing more and they want people to know they're gonna get sikkstrong. That said I've dedicated the past 3 weeks or so to spending a couple days a week running a few miles and doing a decent sized core workout on the hangboard and rings. While it's not a lot, it's more than I've done in a long time and I'm happy about it. So there. Take that.
I can't say my climbing is improving by leaps and bounds but I feel good and I'm excited to go somewhere. That right there is a good thing in my world. It's a nice contrast to the mindset I had before leaving on the last trip.
Plans to go to the lake last week derailed when the dry, 33 degree day turned into a wet snowy mess. On top of that, we're supposed to get some ungodly amount of snow(for Madison) tomorrow and inevitably the town will shut down and all the hippies will ski into work. I'm allowed to say that because my coworker Pete is one of those hippies.
For anyone who doesn't ski into work.....buy Atlas Snowshoes. You know you want to.
