TRNovice’s Climbing Training Diary

Week 83 (13th – 19th Oct 2008)

Posted in Weekly Training Diary by Peter James Thomas on 19 October 2008

All climbing training diary entries may be viewed here.

Decided to see whether total rest would help the right ankle. Maybe it has a bit, but not enough to be that encouraging. I guess I had better go to the Drs now as it has been about a month with no real signs of healing.

Training Diary
Day Commentary Stats
  1. Right ankle swollen from the weekend, so no prospect of any cardio training for a few days.
  2. Fingerboard sesssion as per here. Felt easy, will continue for one more repetition at this level and consider which exercises to step up for the following week. Exceptions: None.
Tuesday Rest ankle.  
Wednesday Rest ankle.  
Thursday Rest ankle.  
Friday Rest ankle.  
Saturday Rest ankle.  
Sunday 2.5 hours bouldering at The Arch. Very, very careful session on stuff that I was both 100% sure I wouldn’t fall off of and could also down climb. Ankles were OK, save for tweaking the older injury again walking there *sigh*. V3 x 2
V4 x 2
V5 x 0

Very low about all of this, probably shouldn’t have done even the limited climbing I did on Sunday, but going a bit stir crazy.

Training Summary

Progress against Short-term Goals

No outdoor routes this week.
No cycling due to ankle.
No running due to ankle.
Did one further fingerboard session. Others were stymied by taking longer than anticipated to refconfigure our training “wall” by adding a Moon board to the Metolius Wood Grips. Started this mid-week, but didn’t finish until Saturday night for a variety of reasons. Now at least have some other board options.
No outdoor bouldering this week.

Progress against Medium-term Goals

Going backwards :-(.
