Yet another trip has come to its end… I have now been 1,5 week in Rodellar, Spain and I got to climb a lot, which was my intention of the trip. I did not send any routes, at least nothing worth mentioning, but I had a great time climbing outdoors and trying a lot of different routes. I think I tried between 25-30 different routes divided on 8 days, so I’m pretty happy about the onsight-training I managed to do, which was one of the most important parts of the trip. The routes were faaaar longer than what I’m used to climb, so all in all I got everything I needed from this trip; onsight-training, looong and pumpy routes, and a lot of climbing meters.
The Nordic championship some weeks ago was the last comp for a while, so after that, basic endurance training was on the program. And what better way is there to do that? I think climbing 30-40 meter routes is a great way to train the basic endurance, and I am very happy with my decision on climbing in Spain. I was a bit unsure before I left, but it turned out to be a good decision! The upcoming two weeks I will do some hard training in the gym, before taking it a bit easier the week before the European championship in THREE WEEKS! I will also take part in a national competition the weekend before that, which I’m quite excited about! After the championship in France there is time for the Norwegian championship and the world cup and EYC in Slovenia the following two weeks, before the 2012 season is over. But still a lot to look forward to!!! Psyched and motivated as always 🙂
