Topic - UKC Fit Club Week 362

mbh - on 23 Feb 2014
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=274502)

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.

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

Summary of last week:

Eagle River - what are the main benefits of the yoga? Managing to keep sane in this weather?
mrchewy - great week for you. So close with the 6a+ !
Si Cox - working on V2-4 consistency, aiming for V5. How has Scotland been?
AndrewW - lots of running. Do you notice any difference, the more you do?
hms - 7a onsite at Chorro! Fanfares...etc! More thoughts on how you will get on on grit?
Curious Yellow - well done on giving the boulder comp a go. Now in Chulilla.
mbh - will you get to do the Grizzly in a fortnight?
mattrm - Dishmeister - 900 dish tucks is some going. Good luck with the 7a goal, sounds like you are making good headways towards it.
Alun - Great progress with the weight loss.Did you get outside?
Dandan82 - great evidence that your training has been working. Mind the elbows!
grubes - did the weather let you get to Malham or has it lived up to Eagle River's description of it as a waterfall?
Ally Smith - Great efforts on Fish Eye. When can you next get to it?
Humperdink - sympathies re the tendon injury. Any improvement? Impressive dedication in all that cross training.
Exile - Good week for you. Have you been on the new woody?
Luke Owens - another one with great progress to report. Good effort and nice for you to see a return on all your work.
IainRUK - great sustained mileage, "15.3 mile road run 6:36 pace for a hilly loop".amid your 5th 90+ week in a row. Where in the US are you moving to?
Nick Russell - another epic raid on distant lands, this time bagging two good winter routes. Great stuff.
Just Tintin - gets outside! Impressive confidence in the restorative powers of lentil salad.
Nomics4sale - You came close to a 7a onsight, and anyway you did loads, before and after the Zen epiphany. What are you going to do about this confidence thing?
Spud_23 - Five gym sessions, and more besides - is that so bad?
biscuit - a) what have you done on the beastmaker? b) scales have no tact.
Sankey - the horror, the horror, of the gym perhaps awaits you. Never mind, seven weeks will pass by in a flash. Great work at Siurana.
Ali - Hope you have a great time at Chulilla, whatever you manage repoint/onsight-wise.
stevemarkperry - keeping up the MTBing. What have you planned for the Alps?
pork pie girl - not quite the week you wanted, but plenty of positives in there.
AJM - giving and taking beta with the best of them. Sounds as though things are going swimmingly.

Apologies if I have missed anyone out or appear to have misjudged your reports. Plenty of to-ing and fro-ing between rainy UK and sunnier climes.

Patience, patience, it will stop raining, one day, won't it?
