Ten workouts have passed since my last retrospective, which means it’s time to run the numbers. In case you haven’t been following along, I analyze my climbing data every ten workouts to see how I’m doing at a more macro level. Here’s the link to my second retrospective.
This stretch was an incredibly strong period of climbing. In my second set of climbs this year, I sent my first V6. I continued to push myself in sessions #21-30 as I sent a few more V6s.

Visualized into a pie chart, here are my sends and failures from my last ten sessions.
I went on an absolute tear between February 21st and March 18th. My average point total for sessions 21-30 was 49.9, +12.45 points from the last stretch!
I’m really happy how these ten sessions went, especially given how I took a minor step back in my second set of sessions compared to my first. The only knock on this stretch was I completely ignored regular exercises (as you can tell from my warmup and cooldown stats).
The main tweak I made was reintroducing pyramiding grades of problems for warm up (starting at V0, working up to V1, V2, etc.). Overall, doing so brought up the volume of problems I did in each session and my overall point totals.
Aside from the high level stats, I’m happy with how my failures worked out in this third stretch — I pushed myself considerably including a few tries at V7s and V8s.
Looking forward to the next ten sessions.
Best session in this stretch: 3/10/2018 – 91.5 points, ironically exactly a month from my prior PR.
Worst session: 3/5/2018 – 37 points. Tough day where I couldn’t send a particular V5.
