Topic - UKC fit club week 264

Daniel Heath - on 08 Apr 2012
Happy Easter all. Just finished writing this up and managed to get through a lot of chocolate. How’s that for training.

UKC Fit Club is not a substitute for the training diary but to use with ( or without ) it as a motivational tool for all.

For those wanting to find out more about training for climbing a number of physical training articles here:

A new thread is posted each week on Sunday for anyone to jot down their previous week's activity, noting goals, successes and failures and to swap ideas.

Anyone interested in starting is very welcome but you should aim to post each week, every week, however little or much you have done. By making such a regular public record of your activities and by restating your goals every week this new habit will hopefully improve your training habits to help achieve your goals whatever the level of your chosen activity.

Link to last week's (263) thread:

Hope I haven’t missed anyone

Richardh – Hope you find some motivation soon
IainRUK – I’m always amazed by your mileage, especially before and after a race (well done on 2nd). Do you ever find motivation hard?
Richard Popp – You sound psyched on the 7a. A lot of stretching – do you find that helps your climbing?
Andy – Good mileage and variety either side of travelling
Grubes – Well done on the steep 6b+
Leon – Good that you spotted your weaknesses at the Castle. I find it pays to be really optimistic with heel hooks. Awesome progression the fingerboard.
Si dH – Don’t worry about Elegy. That kind of routes much more dependent on how you feel than your climbing ability.
samoflak – Great volume of training. Your body is obviously coping with it well. Good to have a couple of CV sessions in there as well.
Eric9Points – Good week. Not surprised you were tired after two long runs.
liz j – go climbing!
Mark Torrance – Good couple of weeks considering you say you’re working lots. I’m sure you’ll recover well in the days off.
mrchewey – Have fun climbing more on grit. You need a very different style on it. Perfect for low grade soloing when the sun is out.
GordyB – Shame about the injury, well done on a good time considering.
Eagle River – Panorama sounds like a cool crag. Well done on the 7a+
Chris05 – Good luck on the OAP and Front Lever. I’ve tried a few times and find it really hard to keep the momentum of training going.
Nomics4sale – Hope you got your 6c. Remember to climb plenty of routes within your grade too. I believe you become a more efficient climber through climbing lots of do-able routes.
crag_hopper_jay – Well done on your HVS/E1s. Your goals are pretty steep, I don’t think I would get that number of E grades in a year!
Tom Hutton – Good healthy week. About your week plan, how about doing swim and core on two days? I’m sure you can handle it ;)
Ian Bell – Good luck in Spain. Liking your trad goals too, Sloth would be a good tick.
Hokkyokusei – Good mileage
Liam M – 4x400 warm up? Good work, that would almost be a session for me!
Biscuit – Well done getting on the harder stuff. I always avoid training the day before going outdoors, but in the long term I think you’ll do better to train anyway. A bit of extra training volume shouldn’t hurt, even if you can’t climb as hard the next day.
Candy – As if you put cleaning in your fitness log :P Your 2 mile time isn’t bad at all, and your previous time of 14min is very good! I’m sure you’ll get there. Keep going on the campus board.
puppythedog – Lots of good things from this week, nice
Kevster – I’m sure there’s something to be said from a full week off
Sankey – Hope your knee recovers. See you again in a few weeks.
Ayuplass – Good luck tomorrow, sounds like a mental race!
Murd – Glad the 4x4s are working for you. I hope to start experimenting with them soon.
Seankenny – It’s always “good” to have had falls on gear. Hopefully this will give you the edge in confidence next time you’re in a similar situation.
Mattrm – go running and climbing!
TerryLines – Glad you’re recovering
Jgustafsson – Intervals take so much out of you, I’ve sacked of a lot of sessions in the past when it didn’t feel right. Don’t beat yourself up.
Eric the Red – cracking, well done!
