Kick-ass climbing day!

I am so tired. It’s been a long day. Imagine this, I managed to clock in around 6 hours of climbing today!

This afternoon, my friend Mike S. and I “discovered” a bouldering gym at the heart of Taipei.

You should’ve seen Mike’s face — it was pure ecstacy.

He’s been so out of shape, climbing-wise, because he hadn’t really had a chance to go bouldering (climbing a low wall horizontally).

When he first saw the gym, he immediately declared, “This is now my home gym.”

As for me, it was pretty cool. Bouldering is way more difficult than climbing because it relies more on your upper body strength and strategizing how to go across the wall in the most efficient manner.

Embarrassing though — I couldn’t even go past V-zero, which is the simplest route. 🙁

But I did manage to see a significant difference in my technique after we moved to the Y17 gym. I was now able to reach holds that I wouldn’t have otherwised reached, and is more aggressive when climbing.

Haha, I was able to climb up 5 times — not bad since we’ve been climbing the whole day! I can’t wait to climb again in the middle of this week! 🙂

At the rate I’m going, I’ll be so buffed in time for summer! Yay!

Just hope I wouldn’t look like the female version of Rambo! ;-D

About Tina

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!
