Topic - UKC Fit Club Week 363

mbh - on 02 Mar 2014
Bit late this week, as I try to squeeze this in before going off to daughter number one's graduation, while dealing with daughter number two's teen crisis.

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.

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

Link to last week’s (362) thread:

NOTE:- a training article written by Alex Barrows, it could be useful to some so here it is:

Who's doing the posts for the next few weeks? Volunteers welcome, and thanks to those who have agreed to do it.

for the next few weeks we have:

09/3 - Nick Russell
16/3 - Nick Russell
23/3 – Si Cox
30/3 - nomics4sale
06/4 - ?
13/4 - ?

Summary of last week:

Joughton - fantastic efforts and achievements Jake.
mattrm - good week for you, both on climbing and weight fronts. Have you STSd this week?
AJM - not that you are officially training at the moment, but a big vicarious thank you for the help and welcome you and A have offered various fitclubbers in the last weeks.
AndrewW - I didn't catch what the weather was like, but great that you got to go tradding.
mbh - heel not good, and head not in the right place for training, full of other things. Hope it gets back on track soon.
Jamming Dodger - that was a good week that was. That roller sounds good. Chorro now imminent!
hms - you gave the TCA greens a try at least. You also pack in more acronyms than anyone else. I think it is a Bristol thing. Bristol advice re foam rollers probably not helpful, dare I say.
Alun - Great 7A(+) tick.
biscuit - off with you to Chorro! Scales rarely break when you need them to, I find....
Eagle River - feeling less ropey now?
Dandan82 - excellent effort on Live by the Sword (7a+)
grubes - a white van free week for you this week? Hope so....
nomics4sale - 4 good runs there. Ignore biscuit. What will you try that is new?Thanks for the thoughts. I'm not in a very good place at the moment, training wise, as the heel is if anything more painful than ever, and I am not even getting out to do much else.
Just Tintin - great effort on the 7a. Excuse my ignorance, but what does a "daily plank" actually entail?
pork pie girl - detail, detail, we want detail. It's not a yawn at all.
Humperdink - Great attitude, and all the best for next year at the XC Nationals!
Nick Russell - A classy booze cruise is still a booze cruise, but, why not after such mammoth winter efforts last weekend. Any news from the physio?
Ally Smith - sympathies re the lurgy. Hope it is receding now. Roll on Oliana in a fortnight.
spud_23 - inspiration and encouragement is half of what this is for, I guess!
Exile - reminds me of being out demon-dropped by fearless five year olds when my kids were that age.
mrchewy - the benefits of rest, eh? Well done on the outdoor sport.
JimmyKay -how's your knee, Jimmy?
Curious Yellow - almost got the second 7a OS - well done.
Ali - take the positives. You were on holiday, after all, and the climbing will surely bounce back.
Luke Owens - Sunshine at the Orme! Well done on the 6c+.
stevemarkperry - great race day experience there.

So, some sun starting to peak through, and a bustling exchange between the UK and Spain still going on. Well done all.

Plaudits for the week have to go to Jake for another amazing list of onsights.
