My training program planned 4 weeks of work. The first was supposed to be light, like an approaching week to try the sessions I would insert into the schedule. I hence texted different things, revisiting what I set and trying to make the loop work as good as I could. From the second to the fourth week, the program started more seriously. It provided a good work out on the strength-endurance at the gym; single fingers, half crimped and arm locks works at the hang board; full crimped activity, eccentric moves and 1-5-9 at the campus board; core work at the TRX; some body-exercises at the rings and finally a bit of stretching for the technique in addiction of one day of rock climbing. This is what the weekly schedule planned. I am now in the middle of the 4th week and I feel I am having a lot of fun. I don't know if the fun is because I am not training as much as I would have, or just because I love training after a long period of absence.
Despite the intensive month stuck inside the gyms, I had four days outside where I completed a couple of problems. I quickly got the second ascent of "The wheel of Champo" 8B, in Champorcher, like the name suggests. It is a super traverse connection, freed by Gabri, which links two established lines and with a lovely pinch at the end. The rock at the top is one of the best in the valley and it is probably one of the last thing left to do up there.
