Someday I'll climb again for realsies.

But not today.

Climbing at GWPC: 10a, 10b(f), 10a/b, 10b(f)

My arms felt pumped after the first climb, which is never a good sign - I guess they're tired from yesterday. But more than that, my finger HURT. However I damaged it (it feels like the bone is bruised), it really doesn't like climbing. Therefore I took it easy, tried to stick with climbs that had big holds and little overhang, and took a lot of right-handed rests on the wall, whenever I could find them.

Supposed to climb tomorrow with Tor. I think I might find a slab climb on the back wall that I like and just do it over and over, to practice balance and footwork. Something really stemmy would probably work, too - just not so much overhang.

The good news is that the new Evolve shoes Rebecca gave me are awesome. My feet felt like spiderman on the wall. It's a bit annoying taking them off after every climb, but ultimately I think I'm happy with my decision to go with the tight velcro instead of the lace-ups.

Also: 56 burpees, done in sets of 10 throughout the day.

I found that Crossfit + climbing can put a lot of strain on your joints. You're smart to take it easy.
