How you can be out of shape while in shape

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

So... yesterday was a revelation.

I've been climbing twice a week (not 3 times, as I should have been) at Coyote while my beloved Vertical Reality has been under construction/renovation during the month of October. I was doing pretty well, and figured that I've probably improved there.

Not. So. Much.

So I didn't really realize it, but if you look at the photos, there's something different about these two places:

Coyote:




(most easy problems located on walls that run straight up and down)

Vertical:





(NOTHING IS STRAIGHT UP AND DOWN!)

So... Was supposed to have one last visit to Coyote before my pass expired. Instead, auto-pilot took me to VR. Great, I'm really ok with that! Yay! New toys! So many new problems to play with! So... *gasp*... much *gasp*... to *gasp* ... try! Yeah, so, apparently I haven't really been pushing myself this last month. *aargh!*

So: back on the horse. Swimming tonight. First ballet class tomorrow. Climbing Friday. Pet Expo Saturday (*disclaimer* not actually exercise). Spa day (yay, finally getting my birthday present, and using it to celebrate a friend's birthday too!) Sunday, followed by -- you guessed it -- more climbing.

No wonder October was an unsuccessful month for losing weight! I was doing a LOT less than I thought! I was climbing until my hands refused, but the rest of me apparently wasn't getting the memo.

Oh well, I'll just play demon games:
