Topic - UKC Fit club 301

Daniel Heath - on 23 Dec 2012
The Christmassy thread!
Let’s take extra care with our diet this Christmas. Binging is not cool, or even attractive.
I hope everyone manages to squeeze in some fitness around visiting relatives.
Have a lovely Christmas.

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 (300) thread:
Kevster – Well done on the reds. It’s great when a hard route is so wired it feels easy.
MrChewey – That’s some discipline going alcohol free this month. I’ll be handing over fit club in the New Year, so have a great time in Scotland and Wales. Good work on the V3s and the Ultra Marathon and adventure race. I read your blogs again and you certainly have some big achievements to be proud of.
Ally Smith – Good luck training hard whist avoiding injury. Too tired to stay out with work do? Can only be a good thing :P
AJM – Well done not eating too much. Really positive week there! Sessions look great and focussed. 49 pull ups, so close. Good luck in the long term, 8a would be an immense achievement ;)
IainRUK – Another quality week Iain.
Annak – Fair point about keeping it fun, which is the ultimate goal. Congrats on 10k PB, which probably justifies your rest day. Have a good time in Spain.
Si_dH – Well done on a strong day bouldering. I hope it gives you the focus to eat well. You have well surpassed your 2008 goals. I might suggest that your trad grade is just waiting to be bumped up when you decide to cash in on your sport climbing improvements :P
Grubes – A new fitness phase? Good luck mate and work hard. It’s good to look back and realise you achieved most of your goals. Maybe the weight loss required some more focus now?
NMN – Solid week with no slacking.
Exile – Resting for the cold is totally understandable, I have wasted a few sessions by going to the wall out of routine and not being fit to do anything.
JimmyKay – Great result from the Comp Jimmy, and the best week you’ve posted in a while. I’m jealous of your outdoors plans this Christmas. Enjoy them!
Maria85 – Strong week there. I wonder if your “failures” are due to an optimistic week plan rather than laziness. Feel free to prove me wrong if you can in fact squeeze all that in a week!
Ali – Well done on orienteering result. Shame about the abundance of rest days :P
Seankenny – Sorry to hear about your mum. Hope you manage to do more this week.
Mattrm – Looks like your “no rest day” plan is working out well. Eager to hear how this week went with the works do? I’m glad to hear you feel like you’ve improved a lot since 2009.
Joughton – Positive report from you Jake. Have fun getting strong fingers. Make sure you don’t lose too much strength you might have gained. I made that error. Stanage sounds like a fun day.
Ian Bell – Sounds like good progress bouldering. Route climbing sometimes feels a bit mechanical after some time off. Hopefully you’ll find the flow again and enjoy being strong for the cruxes!
Nomics4Sale – Good sessions then. It definitely pays to go all out when trying routes. I went there for the first time this week, loved it.
Eagle River – Wow you’re really smashing the routes eh. Hope it pays off outside. I went there for the first time this week, thought the grades were not soft. “Warmed up” on a black 6b+ that scared me a little.
Pebbles – I’m glad you felt the C25K the next day, wouldn’t want you to find it too easy! Lots of sessions there, and good to have a big day outdoors.
Biscuit – Good luck with interval training. I rate it highly if you have the motivation to work hard by yourself. If you’re working hard enough, I don’t think you need to do it “most days” eg 3x per week is plenty as it is very intense. Hope you manage 7a onsight soon mate.
Oddtoast – Good routes session then, falls are very helpful to remind you that they’re no big deal. Have a great Christmas and enjoy running when you can!
Quiddity – Nice to see you pop in. I hope you can find ways to enjoy climbing in 2012. I often wonder about a time when I know I’m not improving physically – maybe a good time to headpoint some hard trad?
Richard Pop – 3x run and fingerboard sounds good. I’m sure you’ll improve a lot from both.
Curious Yellow – Strong week. Crashing is a sign of working hard previously. You’ll be stronger from it now 
