the reluctant athlete is in ur fridge eatin ur foodz

it went much better at the gym tonight. i wasn’t embarrassing myself quite so heavily. whew! it helped that i had enough sleep this time, and i ate a lot today, knowing i’d need it.

i got up a couple of 5.8 routes. i guess that’s my skill level right now. curiously, i was thwarted by a particular 5.8 route with pink tape that i’d gotten up okay last week, when i was a total wimp. i think i’d lost my balance by that point. jim made a crazy attempt at a 5.10 route, and got about half way up. he’s definitely going to end up being better than i am.

once we were pretty much exhausted, i suggested we make a horizontal trip along the low holds for awhile, which is supposed to be good practice. jim agreed, and in fact we went all the way around one of the artificial mountains. i fell off the wall two or three times, but jim’s feet never touched the ground once. jim did a couple of bouldering routes after that. i was too tired to give it a try.

i’d type more, but i have to get up at 5:00am every damn day. drag.
