Topic - UKC fit club 302

Daniel Heath - on 30 Dec 2012
Ok folks this is the last one from me. (Indefinitely)
Grubes has kindly agreed to take it over in the short term, but everyone please have a think if you could commit to a big chunk of time (eg 6months to a year).
Regardless, the most important thing is that we start the thread and post each week for accountability.

The next couple of weeks should be good with several climbers going on Christmas trips this week.
This week is a good opportunity to reconsider your goals for the new year.
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:
Deacondeacon – Good work on the 7As
AJM – Looking forward to the trip report!
Jake – Good week. The foundry is mega. Easy to burn out even on jugs.
JimmyKay – Wow suffering a whole week with skin shows the extra effort you managed to squeeze out in the comp. Climb hard in Spain!!!
Kevster – Good luck getting on high 7s in Spain.
NMN – Average week from you, even though 15miles is a good week for most of us. Hope you slip into your previous high volume habits now Christmas is over. Maybe even do some trad? ; )
Mrchewey – Good week then. Well done getting on harder indoor routes. I’m not sure you would have tried a 6b+ on the sharp end last year. Great progress.
Grubes – You sound psyched. You’re selling Almscliff to me, all I need is good weather… Hope you manage to get climbing in the variety of places you want to.
Eagle River – Shame about the illness. Hope you get 7c in three months.
Sankey – Some steady progress over 3 weeks there. Keep training right and good luck in Turkey.
Si_dH – Personally I’ve found the focus of having limited training material at home has made me train harder than at the wall. How did you find it? Keep going with the eating discipline.
Exile – Great week there. Maybe a fresh attempt is needed to bridge the 6% bodyfat gap?
Biscuit – Busy week, even if you feel frustrated at Anak. Well done with intervals. I hate them too but they’re undeniably useful. Remember to try hard ; )
Maria85 – Great variety of stuff, and a big old run on Sunday! Enjoy the running/future races and please don’t get injured 
Curious Yellow – Better than nothing I suppose…!
Nomics4Sale – Good volume there but, if you feel you can try a bit harder, then do that. Try a bit harder in the new year. Happy training.
Mattrm – At least you’re consistent. Keep it all going and keep running.
Ian Bell – Have a great time in Malta
Ali – Family Christmas run, that’s impressive. (and running to work isn’t supposed to feel easy) Good week. I wonder what your aims are for the new year?
Richard – Good week of climbing and training. Hope your calf recovers soon.
Seankenny – Good to see the volume and extra runs.
Ally Smith – Great progress at Parisellas. An 8A on fit club would be pretty cool. Good luck in Turkey.
Annak – Looking forward to hearing how much climbing you got away with!
Oddtoast – I always think toproping features is very worthwhile and a nice change. Hope you’re not planning on 5 rest days a week in the new year ; )
Pork Pie Girl – So much volume as usual from you. Do you have any goals in the new year?
