35 minutes of step-ups. carrying 42#. It wasn’t all vertical, I was walking outside so there was more walking on flat ground between steps.
1.25 hrs. of bouldering, 4x4s in the V2-V4 range. Then 35 min. of core and shoulder work.
1.5 hrs. of bouldering at the Middlesex Fells. Did some easier routes, V1s and V2s, some traverses, and maybe a V3 climb to finish.
4 mile hike with a 42# backpack on. Working to get my legs stronger and my back accustomed to carrying a heavy load.
2 hrs. bouldering at the gym. Worked V5s, mostly, with a few V6, V7, V8s in there.
Climbing at Crow Hill! It was pretty wet and we had to start later in the day, but we were able to get 3 trad climbs in. These were in the 5.5-5.7 range.
Rest day. Stretching and foam roller.
