/ sore throat and indoor bouldering
I have a sore throat and I am psyched to do an indoor bouldering session at The White Spider tomorrow.
IMHO I feel well enough to do it.
What do other people think?
Should I train through the sore throat?
Bouldering? Unless you loose both legs, contract yellow fever and are infected with brain weevils, I think you'll be ok. What exactly is the worst that could happen?
Take a teaspoon of man up and get on with it. A 'sore throat' has absolutely no bearing upon your ability to climb.
Not planning a weekend away in the Peak for the Bank Holiday then?
Agree with you.
I asked the BMC about volunteering and waiting to hear from Dan about hut maintenance....
Crag maintenance takes place in Oct/Nov but there is TremFest. :-)
Goin 2 do it!
Exercise is good for simple ailments as it increases the release of HGH(Human Growth Hormone) which boosts the immune system.
Nope I am not.
I will do 1:1 stuff at PyB soon though.
As long as you don't cough all over the holds..
Agree with you
I find purified bullshit works wonders for my sore throat.
Wire brush and Dettol.
What about lemon and ginger tea?
Some M/U spray should fix it.
cool as beanz
It sounds to me like you need to man up a bit sunshine. I once coughed a lung up just after the crux of Fern Hill but just got on with it and lit a celabratory embassy at the top. Even Ron Fawcett enjoyed the odd smoke, famously smoking a cigar after doing 100 extremes in a day <solo>
Put some big boy pants on, leave your nail clippers at home and go and get it done.
I disagree with all this "man up" crap. If we were talking about a rare opporutnity to do something big on a climbing trip, sure, climb through it.
But we're not, we're talking about a training session at the wall. A sore throat is likely to be a symptom of some kind of infection, and trainng whilst sick is generally counterproductive.
In essence with colds and the like, if its snot/sneezes/ coughs then carry on... if these get onto your chest and snot becomes ... errr ... browner, then its time to rest.
Just dont cough on the holds or the others there and as I'm not at Spider till Friday you have my permission to climb there tomorrow. ;)
oh and keep washing yer hands.
Will you enjoy the bouldering? If you will (and you say you are "psyched") then you should go for it. I've found before that I've felt better climbing than snuffling at home.
If the throat will make you feel shit, then do something else.
+1 go climbing when you feel well it is after all only the bouldering wall. If the cough has moved in to your chest exercise can be particularly counterproductive. This gave me a lung infection before now that wouldn't budge and I've heard it can be bad for your heart.
I might go Sunday :-)
I had trouble swallowing today at Lunch and have a mild chess pain and slightly runny eyes.
I also have mild shoulder pain.
Do you know my friends Luke Cornibar and Kat Assessohn?
Its got worse....
Mild chest and shoulder pains and I had problems swallowing.
On a different subject Johnny Dawes rung me up at lunchtime
What a lovely surprise!?
Did he mention you will be able to climb E8 as you have the same body shape as him?
about your aches and pains and other medical problems: go to the first cemetery and take a good look around, do you have an idea how many people buried there would like to swap with you? man up
Probably know them if I saw them, I'm there often enough bouldering... well technically I think the words are 'trying to boulder'. haha.
We talked about my condition for most of the rime and he only mentioned E8 once.
He said my coordination is not bad and most people have some kind of coordination impairment - even himself.
I've been to a cemetry because my mum had to sort out my grad parents headstone.
I will probably go Westways tomorrow afternoon.
You must have bumped into the legendary Chez who is there most Wednesdays.
Unless its a virus of course. I've just had a sore throat/cough and was weak for about 2 weeks
Is the answer none because they're all dead?
Johnny Dawes just rings you up out of the blue, amazing! How much is he paying you to post on here?? ;-)
I texted him before hand about if I have cognitive impairements from Dyspraxia....
Then when I was on a computer during my lunch break I got a phone call from the Stone Monkey.
He does not pay me to post.
We text a lot.
Lunch break? Have you sorted out a job now then?
I'm on a shortish admin course for the moment.
We get a 45 min lunch break at midday.
That sounds like a step in the right direction, hope you get on well with it!
I hope I survive the duration.
The company is horrible - full of Vicky Pollards (Little Britain).
I would love to have the same coordination impairment as The Dawes.
> I had problems swallowing.
Just spit then... I am sure your boyfriend wont mind just this once.
Why use the insinuation of homosexuality as a way to harras someone who has some self proclaimed medical issues?
Johnny told me he did sport routes at Buoux and he found it hard at first bu then he got used to it.
I am not homosexual and I was talking about food!
I might be sandstoning with Johnny this weekend.
dont let johnny down,he wont give you another chance.
I ain't goin 2 let JD down!
Is sandstoning some form of masochistic dogging?
Have fun what ever it is ;)
Get thee to Boots the chemist and ask the pharmacist for a packet of Tyrozets, and then go climbing.
Miss out on the bouldering if it means not missing out on the stoning.
I've had a tonsilitis and they've worked for me.
LOL, you are funny :)
Sandstoning = climbing on sandstone, Font, East Sussex e.g. Stone Farm, Utah splitter cracks.
Much better know.
Thanks to rest and Lemon and Ginger tea.
Good to hear!
Now get some climbing done and put some more words and pictures on your blog.
Every day is a school day :)
Is sandstone similar to Grit?
I am REALLY PSYCHED about it.
Gritstoning is not dissimilar to sandstoning.
I've been rhyoliting today, now that's very different.
Cool as beanz :-)
New York - Paris - Peckham...
Font is near Paris but not sure how close Peckham is to Stone Farm.
My USA geography is not that good.
OR Are you quoting something from Only Fools and Horses.
I love the program
> I might be sandstoning with Johnny this weekend.
