First Week of August Training Update

We are trying to give up alcohol this week. Not because we're alcoholics, but because we are trying to train... And we were drinking a lot of alcohol. So far, so good. Aside from finishing off the leftover cider on Saturday, we are successfully alcohol free this month!

We also did a bit of training this week. We took Saturday off to give my flapper a bit of time to heal, and then hit NARG on Sunday. I tried staying on crimps to keep off my flapper, and so at the end of the day, I got on the campus board for the first time! It was actually somewhat fun, and I really should start training on it more regularly. Monday and Wednesday night I hit NARG again and felt pretty good, but my tendons were a bit sore. It's probably a good thing that a student held me up on Thursday long enough that Beth and I couldn't make it to the gym during lunch.

We're excited to get outside this weekend to climb and keep training for our next Hueco trip! For motivation, here's a photo of Raanan from our second Hueco trip, 2010.
