Indoor rock climbing to be specific. I went yesterday for the first time in………. 5 years? And I haven’t been consistently going since ….. 2013? Haha basically it’s been a hot minute. My trip out to Joshua Tree in 2014 was the last real outdoor climbing trip I had minus the recent one I did.
Man that was a super legit spring break trip.
This is a shot from going outdoors recently.
That was a hard route. I was trying it because, why not. But it was above my skill level. Haha. Super fun though. Except for the fact that it ripped off my fingertips on both hands. So when I went to unlock my phone with my fingerprint, my phone didn’t recognize my finger. Since the tip was ripped off. Hahaha
Apparently your body doesn’t like vigorous climbing activities after not going climbing for ~6/7 years. Who woulda thunk?!?!😂
As a result I came down with a bad case of DOMS today. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. Which got progressively worse throughout the day. The cure: moving my body. I tried resting, rubbing arnica on it, taking a hot bath. All of those things were generally helpful. But it came down to biking around my neighborhood a few times (I did around 10 laps, which is 10 miles) and felt WAY better after that. 🙂
It was worth it though. It was super fun to go and I definitely want to go again soon. I actually will probably go this Wednesday 😀 as long as I can cancel my plans to go biking. Which shouldn’t be too hard because it’s supposed to t-storm on Wednesday anyways. 😛
mmk. Th-th-th-that’s all for now folks!

I’ve always preferred courageous women.
😀 It was so much fun!!! 😀
I cant wait for my son to take me bouldering when the local indoor climbing re-opens. I tried rock climbing (outdoors) years ago, would prob. struggle now in some ways but would be stronger in others. That rock in the picture looks very hard to climb! Well done you. Hopefully the finger tips grow back
Aww that is awesome!! I hope you get to go soon for sure!! 😀 And yes, it was difficult, and my body reacted a couple of days later. haha Let’s just say I haven’t lifted weights since Monday. 😛 But I’m finally ready to go back tomorrow 😀
