Went rock climbing (bouldering) at a place called Pena Blanca in New Mexico. Climbed from 6 pm 'til the sun went down. Got a video, but its dark in the fading light and the cinematographer seemed to like to get good butt shots :roll: :

31 July 2007

Squat:
10 x bar
7 x pistol sqts - stupid balance, these are hard!
10 x 95 lbs
10 x 135 lbs
6 x 175 lbs
6 x 175 lbs
6 x 175 lbs - bah, going for 8 reps! D'oh I suck. 6 reps was for next week's 185 lbs, so might just keep it the same.

No SLDL or Leg Curls, hamsting is okayish, but these make it hurt.

Leg Ext:
3 x 10 x 40 lbs

Standing Calf:
3 x 15 x 260 lbs :)

Silly hamstring being slightly sore still, really cut this workout short - I was in and out of the gym in no time. To much energy lately as well so decided to go climbing!

Called up some friends and went to a canyon that is not even a 15 minute drive away, but it was raining hard there. Just on little cloud parked above the canyon, stuck on the mountain side :x . Not to be discouraged, we went on to some "Buildering" that was out of the rain. El Paso has a plethora of rock walls that are great to climb on! This one is at an amphitheater in the canyon right by where we were going to climb:

Working the traverse:

This one is cool because its my friend resting and re-chalking while still on the wall:

We also climbed up a part of the wall that led to a balcony, but I got no pictures of that - a little more scarry climbing so high (!), but cool to be able to climb up to the second floor :mrgreen:

D'oh, skipped the gym and went climbing :oops: . Should have gone to the gym in the afternoon but I was hurting all over a ton so I took some pain pills and took a nap that ended up lasting 3 hours! Woke-up when a friend called to go climb :D . Was feeling a bit better by then so how could I refuse? I'll gym it up today :D

Climbed at Pena Blanca again. Started at a traverse called the Bone Yard, then ended at the Smith boulder in the dark (yay for headlamps!).

The boneyard has a sit-down start that I just can't get for the life of me! I got some humerous video of my attempts:

Gotta be able to laugh at yourself sometimes :lol:

Managed to drag my sorry self to the gym today. A good warm-up helped loosen me up, but the hamstring was killer during deadlifts - didn't make it past the warm-up! Such is life I suppose, at least I got the warm-up in and some video to make sure my form was okay :mrgreen:

Man, I wish I was on the Vegan Vacation! :cry: :cry: :cry:

Crystal, just started reading your journal, and WOW am I impressed! You are the kind of athlete I aspire to be...amazingly strong, constantly active, and missing workouts only because you're too busy...doing a different KIND of workout! Thanks for the inspiration. :)

Awh, thanks CN :D . I won't be this active when school starts again at the end of the month though (or maybe I will . . . I'm such an addict!!!).

5 August 2007
Some climbing out at Pena Blanca, but not much because I was by myself (no spotter). Good to get out though :D

Hey crystal I am not sure how long you have been in slc but welcome. I was working at a Boulder gym for an hour a week in trade for a membership and had a blast. Unfortunately due to lack of time i had to quit. I have only gone climbing outside once and loved it although i found my endurance lacking.

Anywho my point was to say hello and say how awesome it is to meet another person from this board. Let me know if ever you would like to go hiking.
