Topic - UKC Fit Club Week 341

mbh - on 29 Sep 2013
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 (340) thread:

The week just gone, in summary

Thickhead - not a bad week really - a long run, a race and over 50 miles at a decent pace. And a birthday too. Happy returns!
Si dH - gets granite climbing in between showers during what seems like a very pleasant holiday. Some really helpful, thoughtful advice for Nick, too. One 7b+ to complete the pyramid.
mbh - see what a lazy Monday followed by a lazy Tuesday do to the rest of your week?
Joughton - works on endurance with some high volume indoor training.
Eagle River - Good try on the Loja 7c
IainRUK - tapering, at speed. Big day today? Good luck with it.
mattrm - tries and recommends sea kayaking.
AJM - nearing vicarious completion of a PhD. Meanwhile, a great account of some sterling efforts at Huntsham, Avon and Cheddar, and a slithery south coast end to the week.
Luke Owens- smashes Face Race first go - well done! - and reports huge improvements on the fingerboard. Things going well in Owens land.
annak - laps up the birthday cake (you're welcome) and joyously reports new guise as well-hard HVS leader, taking falls as they come. Really good efforts.
Exile - a typically varied week of weights, cycling and mystery 7a bridge traverses alongside some climbing. Looking at your goals for the year and your actual progress so far, you've done really well.
JimmyKay - last week Si was typing his report while looking out elegiacally out at the rain, now you're doing it feeling all broken, after a week of niggles and torch lit bouldering triumphs - great going on that btw . Maybe try some easier, slower running while the niggles persist, as a way of resting the legs? And the roller, something I keep thinking I ought to do.
pork pie girl - is very hard on herself, as usual. Does anyone deserve toast, steak and scones more than ppg? Your reports are always a great motivator.
Sankey - four goes at Sticky Wicket and a Font 6c tick. SW will surely go before long
Nomics4sale - 7a (almost), 7a (so, so close...), 7a (got it!) and then packs in 30 miles of running and 1700m or more of ascent. Awesome week, gets you equal top banana billing on the poster.
Ally Smith - Inspired by Cav, gets some fast cycling in after a difficult week that included special dancing therapy for a bad ankle. Reports that it doesn't help.
needkraken - on the up again, indoors and out. Well done.
stevemarkperry - some great sessions, indoors and out and exploring the new trains on his MTB.
biscuit - that 7c again. One of you will get it. Good try anyway.
useful - some great ddt there, bringing back memories.
maria85 - Not a sluggish week by any means. Good luck with the Rab and hope you do get the better of the wheeziness. Eek indeed, re the carpet. That should help, surely?
leon - you did the 6b in the end and still did got 4 sessions into the week. Less of the self disgust please, and et's hear how you get on at Gogarth.
Kevster - do we have time, do we wish to know? Yes we do!. More fitclub epics in the south coast mizzle.
Ali - fantastic week with excellent progress, ending with a race, to boot. The GR20 was as you describe your holiday - doing stuff in the morning, chill in the afternoon. Lovely.
Nick Russell - has a good week's climbing on Lundy and suggests new MA addition to the grading system. At least Si and Ali were able to offer informed responses to your achilles query.
grubes - Squamish adventures (we really had no idea you were heading that way)- well done on topping out the Chief, all 19 pitches plus of it.

And that's it for this week, I think, in which training methods were extended to include cat sitting, special dancing, cricket balls, vacuuming, trading, falling off, honey coated dough balls and waiting until darkness falls, because climbing in the light is too easy..

Well done all, you're a bit hard on yourselves, some of you, but all inspiring .
