Yesterday’s session was honestly unplanned. Originally I only intended on climbing today. Anyways, having gone pretty hard the day before, today’s session was tough. I started feeling the lactic acid buildup as early as the first twenty minutes of this workout. On the plus side, it was a perfect day with no failures!

I did three top-rope routes today, and they all were solid flashes. I’m growing increasingly confident with 5.11as now and just in beginning to reincorporate more top-roping / sport into my climbing schedule.

I’m excited for my third climbing retrospective because I know it’s going to be my best of the year. With a few solid sessions like my PR back on 3/10, I’m hoping to clear a 40-point average for sessions 21-30.

Here are the day’s stats:

Warmup 10 pull-ups
