My new favorite form of strength training has got to be rock climbing. I went climbing again last night with lots of my training peeps. However, it was a little different last night because it was ladies night at The Edge in Halfmoon, NY. So it was just us ladies!
We had a blast! Most of us just needed a quick re-up on how to properly belay one another and the like. We did have a few newbies who needed to get the low down on the whole deal. But the staff does a fantastic job of showing newcomers what to do and making you feel confident. So before you know it all 7 of us were off and climbing all over the place. Being my third time climbing I could definitely tell that I was feeling much more confident. I was able to climb some routes that I couldn’t before.
I also spent some time in the bouldering area. I really haven’t bothered before because I was certain that I wasn’t strong enough and wouldn’t be able to do it. Ha! Proved myself wrong last night. While I can’t do some of the more difficult routes, I was able to manage a few of the easier ones. What a great upper body work out. I am definitely still feeling both of these efforts this morning and so are my fingers! But seriously, try it. It’s fantastic strength training in a fun and friendly environment.
And for thing 2 today………
