Another week begins

Since the weekend was pretty low-key, I felt I couldn't flake out on my HIIT, so this morning was...

100 burpees, sets of 10 - yay!

Then, this evening I took advantage of a lull in the rain to ride down to IW to join Rebecca for some climbing:

5.9(o), 5.10b(o), 10c(f+), 10b/c(o)

I've been afraid of that 10c ("Crackity Jones") for some time. It starts out with a BIG roof on not-so-big jugs, then about 15 feet of negative, then another 15 feet of balancey vertical when you're completely pumped. And yeah, it was about as hard as I was afraid it was going to be. At least I didn't tarzan off the start. The other climbs were all straightforward and not too challenging. There are a couple other c's I have my eye on, but there are like NO 10d's at Ironworks right now. Two that I can think of, one of which I want to do and the other just looks mean. But I really should be stepping up to the d's again - my ankle and shoulder are well enough. No more excuses.

It was great to watch Rebecca tackle a pumpy 9 and a 10a that (in my opinion) would have been totally beyond her a few months ago. She's really getting better.

Big day tomorrow! Gobama!

You're letting those climbs stare ya down, methinks. Don't take it, Daniel! Make up your mind that they're not the boss of you! This is all speculation. I could be full of shit ;)
