I just registered for the Teva Mt Games this summer in bouldering (you're shocked, I know). It's an adaptive category. What can I do between now and then to not totally suck? I'm not trying to win but I don't want folks to be like 'ohh, look at the poor gimpy kid try really hard!'

Damn peer pressure.
though, at the last event, the F Upper Limb field was 0, so I'm hoping I place...

I dunno... drink fewer margaritas, and climb more?

How is the gym for bouldering, for you?

Are you allowed to have an attachment, and is it regulated, in terms of what you are allowed to wear on your gimp-arm, or are you not allowed to wear a hook/axe-type thing, because it would damage walls/holds?

The garage demolition right next to my work building is going to make life REALLY suck in the next month or two.

Sure, it is entertaining to watch, but the noise really gets on your nerves, the building is shaking, and positive air pressure or not, the dust still gets in.

I just hope there won't be clogged air-intake filters, and hopefully none of the equipment is vibration-sensitive to the extent that it is going to die... I mean, we do have vibration-sensitive equipment, and it is already set on special floating supports, but who knows?

They (the maintenance people) haven't figured out how to maintain normal temperature in the building... my expectations are pretty low.

Hey Mo, pretty rad that you're competing. It's pretty hard for me to suggest training for you on account I haven't climbed with you enough to fully understand your limitations. From what I remembered you sometimes get to a move that you simply cannot. Is it possible to get better at work arounds or is it better for you just to get better at the climbing that already works for you?

Weekend report:

Spent the weekend back at home with Nathan. Saturday I had to put the car in the garage for an oil change and decided to run home. Ran 15km, which I'm pretty proud of (considering I only started doing real running 3 months ago). Still not fast but I think I did it at a pretty reasonable pace.

In the afternoon Nathan and I hit up the local train bridge and did a couple of ARC sessions each. I was burned out pretty good after that.

Yesterday we enjoyed the glories of spring, but didn't want to spend too much time outside because the wind was so strong. Did another short run (4.4km) with Nathan that I shouldn't have done.

Tonight I did a 7km run and have decided that I REALLY need to take a couple of rest days from running right now. I took the Beastmaker 1000 away from Nathan and gave him back his Nicros so I still hope to do some upper body work before I go to bed.

That is awl.

I think the thing I will have to work on the most is core strength, as that will help me really get to holds that may be at the edge of my reach.

Lena, the leg guys all wear their prosthesis, I don't know if I'm allowed or not but I've never climbed rock or in the gym with one, I prefer to climb without. My axe arm would definitely trash the holds!

Haven't you been reading this thread? You must drink beer and do one legged campus board routines until you pull the roof of the storage-facility cum bouldering jim down upon you in all raddness. Then whilst carrying the moosebear you must do one-arm deadhangs for two hours whilst listening to Jak slur insults to you from the hole.

...aka train?

took a beat down from Wangerbanger on sunday. got up into the crux trying to lieback through, barndoored right off since there are no right feet. may have figured out some beta that would work. those angled red/green camalots are a pain in the ass.

Had more success on Effigy Too and Hatfields & McCoys (FA: a bunch of dead people -- AB, Big Tony, Smvrf, etc.). Hatfields & McCoys goes up some nice patina ... pretty fun. CI, it's worth doing if you're in the area.

Gotta jam it straight on, reach as high as you can into the pod left hand thumb down. That way you keep your right in somewhat reasonable very tight hands.

If I had known AB would have quit right after, I wouldn't have given him the FA on H&M.

yeah, I think the best thing for me will be to lieback initially until the stance with the right foot in the small dish, then go into straight jams.

there's a fixed green camalot right at the base of the pod, looks like it would require a lot of work to get it out.

wasn't it up to Big Tony who to give the FA to?

Liebacking on that thing just sucks in general IMO.

He was definitely the #1 guy, but it was mine to give up.

weekend report.

RRR.
Met hot SAR dude and gave him a hard time.
Felt badly.
Grew a pair and sent him an appology and offer for beer to his office.
Should be interesting to see if he calls.
I've never done anything like that before (the note, not the hard time).

That is awl.

I thought that giving hard time to guys/gals you find attractive was the pattern of behavior that ended in middle school? I am happy to say that Daniel no longer pulls the ponytails of the girl he finds attractive. He does his best to ignore her, now.Angelic

Anyway, I hope the hot dude calls back.
