Topic - UKC Fit Club Week 342

mbh - on 06 Oct 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:
http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=564587&v=1

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.

The week just gone:

grubes - flies in, takes top spot in the Chew Valley challenge, and crosses paths with a frozen Si. Later, they talk clothes.
AJM - pulls off super onsight tick on E4 Peryl and spots a route to big bouldering gains in the heel-hook area.. Commenting on this, Jimmy thinks it's a marmite thing while Si is less polite. But never mind that... big well done to Ali! (and, breathe....)
Eagle River - does a 7a at second go? It's not THAT poor, is it? Not happy with a 7b getting 3 stars.
stevemarkperry - works all week then gets laid.Up. Hope you are feeling better now.
Thickhead - 61 miles at a impressive pace, up mountains too, brings a great September to a close.
IainRUK - fitclub hugs for you, fatigued one. Bad luck on Berlin timing.Wishing you well with recovery.
leon - lets actual climbing get in the way of training, at foggy Gogarth and sunny Plantation.
Si dH - very well done at Wimberry, highlight of a good week and a typically detailed report.
mattrm - a good Gower day - well done on the lead - ends a satisfying week.
Nick Russell - gets polymath of the week award, and also fresher's flu (I had to look that up), soaks up the atmosphere of American Beauty and is STILL a student. How did the swimming trials go?
Ali - seems to have survived Kaly, and finds new off-road route to work (and thanks for the kind comments)
biscuit - bounces back from a tough day when nothing works out to find two new holds on a hard 7a+, which will surely fall before long.
Joughton - If you wrote your personal statement as well as we've seen you write here, Jake, they'll be fools not to take you. Good luck with the applications.
nomics4sale - trades first blows with Frankie, has a very satisfying trad day - well done on that - and packs in 4 runs. Langdale beckons and we are all wishing you well. Here, have some confidence! Go on, take it..
Needkraken - Oh no, not another boithday (I'd offer you cake, but I'm not sure you've got room for it after that week). Oh, have some anyway, but I'll be checking on that STG pull-up.
pork pie girl - Gets THAT close to onsighting a 7a+, gets back to pace with the indoor bike and takes it out on her settee. Never mind the other people. Good luck with the BB efforts.
Luke Owens - triumphs over the pump at Dinbren, and shows great determination on Axle Attack.
Sankey - Malham tick (Rose Coronary) demonstrates progress made in the last year. Cool.
Ally Smith, the Lurgified, - gets exotic location name drop prize of the week, spends a fortune on cold remedies, and gets the giggles. You can only say you have failed because you have set yourself lots of tough targets.
useful - climbs in the dark, running and hiking. Great mountain day.
maria85 - psyche back and a thought-out training plan in place. Great MM performance completes trio of running ticks amid an impressive summary of summer achievements.
annak - gets lost in the fog, but when this clears leads first E1! Big cheers! And if that wasn't enough, first HM is now minutes away. Good luck with that.
Exile - another good week, packing in a lot of work.
JimmyKay - 55 on prescriptions means Ally can't even claim prize for most expensive meds bill of the week. Sorry you've been so poorly Jimmy, but 3rd in your comp when in that state can't be bad.
mrchewy - pops up and advocates pie therapy. Good to see you again.
mbh - another 60+ mile week, trying to build in some speed, at long last.

A week in which fog, food and family dos have figured prominently, as has modesty, with people loathe to believe their grades.

Highlights: grubes wins the Chew Valley Challenge, annak gets a first E1 and AJM impresses on Peryl. Nomics and ppg voice their fears.
