Climbing and running with a summer cold

Run: 3k 18:23

I didn’t run yesterday because I came down with a cold.  I decided to run today and it felt horrible.

Run: 4k 27:17

I felt extremely sluggish today.

Climb @Upper Acephale

11a, 12d, 12d, 13c, 11c

I was feeling very sick after a couple of burns on Jingus. Decided I didn’t have it in me today and tried Army Ants instead.

Run: 4k 25:41

Although the rain wasn’t very motivating today, my cold seemed to dissipate once I was running.  Two hours later, I felt worse.

Climb @ Carrot Creek

10b, 12a, 12c, 12c, 12c, 12c

I didn’t get pumped at all warming up on the Warlock and I thought I was going to finish off my old project.  I was in for a surprise and four burns later left empty handed.  Still feeling low energy.

Run: 3k 17:35

Still a bit of a cold.  My run today felt the best out of the seven I’ve done this month.

Run: 4k 21:59

During my run today I found myself thinking that I might actually like running some day.  I think I prefer the Nike+ feedback more that the run.  It’s strangely exciting to see the data after a run.

Climb @ Acephale

12d, 12d, 12d, 13c

I took my draws off of Jingus.  Tried 39 steps again and it went much better.

When I woke up August 9th with a sore throat I thought all I needed was a good night’s sleep.  When I woke up the next morning with a cold, I thought I fight it off.  Nine days later I’m still sick and I have accepted that I need to rest until my body is 100%.  Kobe told me “rest is for the weak”.  I am resting now because my body feels weak.

  • Body condition: general lethargy
  • Sleep: 7.5 hours.
  • Stress level: low.
  • Workout notes: n/a
  • Nutrition: No coffee for 1 week starting tomorrow. I purchased fish oil today b/c it helps reduce inflammation and helps with recovery.

    Hi Greg. How are things. I have been enjoying your blog. It seems you have been getting some great advice regarding climbing hard. It’s good you have passed on some of that advice. Now it seems you may have hit a bit of a wall. One thing I noticed from your stats you have been “working” a lot of routes. That is your plan according to your ‘how to climb 12’ system. Just like to maybe add something. From what I see you have become good at falling off routes. That is indeed very important. Now you have to train at getting to the top. Try routes that may take you two three days to send. Still hard but doable. Some times we have to relearn how to finish. It will be good for your mental game and you will have something to report on 8anu. Build your pyramid. Trust me it works.
    Hope to see you at The Lookout .
    Grzegorz
