No, I didn’t miss a day of blogging; I missed a day of workout. Was too busy yesterday – gone from 7AM to 10PM. The only training-related thing I did yesterday was schedule a massage for next week. Wish it was sooner, but oh well.
Today I did work out a bit. I’m going to count walking to lunch as part of my workout (because who says I can’t? I doubt anyone reads this anyway). Went to the Dushanbe Tea House for some rainforest iced tea and saag panir. Sooo yummy. Then went straight from there to the gym.
I was hoping to do some climbing before the elliptical, but didn’t work out that way. I misread the signs and the rock gym was closed for the competition. So I did 20 mins on the elliptical, then decided to register for the climbing competition. (Didn’t do my usual 30 mins because I was worried about completely burning myself out before the comp.) I can’t even describe how nervous I was because there were so many really good people signed up competing. However, I did complete 6 routes (of 24, and tried another 2) so I’m fairly satisfied. And glad I was able to overcome some nerves and shyness to butt in and get a chance at the wall – LOTS of people climbing in that teeny space.
My hands are raw, but I think it’s been a good day. The rock gym closes on May 8 for the summer, so I’d better climb as much as I can before then.
