DAY 1 : 617X2
First day bouldering with Naomerz. Successfully did VB and V0 red/orange on a flat surface. and the V0’s green on the opposite wall. The new gym was way cleaner and way more friendly than I imagined. Great place to be in regards to the motivational music, friendly people, and there’s a coffee table to make your own coffee. Hopefully I’ll be comfortable enough to make some someday.
Ripped my pinky blister & hands are swollen.
Went again that day.
DAY 2 : 618
Went with Michael and Remy today. Couldn’t quite get the green inclined V1.. Climbed the same VB&V1. Got the dark blue V1 moving sideways, almost got through the light blue V1, but ripped off 2 more blisters. fuck. Got to the top on a black V0 and dark blue V1.
3 open sores, but trying to power through. Band-aids for days~
DAY 3 : 620
Dying from grad night, went again. Did everything I previously did & worked on that incline V1 all day. Got 3 up but couldn’t reach that next one. TBH haven’t seen any woman at the gym do it yet. EXTREMELY frustrating..
DAY 4 : 623X2
Went with Naomi in the morning for 30 min and got through that light blue V1 and completely tore up my hands. Everything healed has opened.. Tried the green V1 til I lost my patience. I wanna just give up, but I wont. Same holds on the same fingers are making blisters waaay painful.
Went at night with Logan and Michael. Easier to climb with them just cause we stay there for 3+hours and they they work better together. Definitely more motivated to try the new routes. Tried the orange V1 with the one hand starting grip, but AGAIN tore a finger after 3 tries. Haven’t felt this depressed about not finishing a workout bc I just physically couldn’t do it. A little similar to the feeling when I mentally wanted to go on, but physically couldn’t at the gym last summer. Except this time I didn’t break down l o l . Anyways, still couldn’t do that green V1 incline
DAY 5: 625X2
Went in the morning with Naomerz for maybe 40 min. Short climbing time, but spent most of the time trying to motivate naomz to do harder ones. Tried the green V1 incline once again and actually ended up hearing my blister tear again. blisters on blisters, man. (thank god it wasn’t a tendon tearing or something) Tried a handful of times & then moved on to the orange V1, but couldn’t get past 3rd one. Did the dark blue V1 moving horizontally, the dark blue V0, the black V0 and the light blue V1.
Went later in the afternoon with Logan, Michael, and Tricia. Quite the okay climbing day except for all these blisters, but fought through em all. Did the orange V0, red VB, tried the green V1 at least 15 times (didnt get it), yellow V1- (didn’t get it), light blue V1, dark blue V), tried the orange V1 again, and lost all power by the dark blue V1. Ended up dropping from the very top bc I just lost my grip/didn’t judge the height very well.
Resting til Saturday 629, hopefully my hands’ll be healed and I can just weight train at the gym until then.
