More rock climbing…

We went indoor rock climbing again this weekend. So. Much. Fun. It’s only our 5th time but we’ve already invested in our own shoes and harnesses and we’re really starting to see some progress in our performance.

A couple of people have asked me about having upper body strength – I’m not going to lie – it definitely helps to have some muscles up top when you’re hanging on to a hold for dear life – but I’ve found that having solid leg strength and good balance are just as important.

The rest of the weekend was spent reintroducing Fall and Winter clothes to my closet, and late evenings turning into early mornings on the deck with the chiminea going and playing apples to apples with good company.

Unfortunately, we didn’t really get around to the guest bedroom, though I’m half way there with clearing all the Fall clothes that were stored in there. Maybe next weekend. Maybe.

    i really want to start climbing! my best friend absolutely loves it. i know it will be hard, because i have zero upper body strength. but i think ill have to give it a try!

  3. OK, if that is what rock climbing does to your body I need to get my ass to a fake rock wall.

  4. Allison – if you have a bestie that is into climbing you should definitely tag along! It’s so much fun – and you don’t have to soley rely on upper body strength.

    Laura – hahaha! You crack me up. It is an INTENSE full body workout.

  5. This looks great! I used to climb with my neighbor as a kid. It’s a lot of fun, but you definitely need a lot of strength for it! I would love to get back into it…I tried a few months ago, but it hurt my hands a lot! I guess I’ve been out of it so long I’d need to work up the strength for it again!

  6. If only I weren’t horribly, horribly scared of heights. Can’t wait to read about your guest room…you’ll get there eventually!

  7. The hubby and I went climbing once or twice, and we could never figure out how to get to the top of ANYTHING. I recall us getting half way sometimes, though…

    it was fun and I’d like to try it again, but how you people get up there I have no idea.
