Strong again

The last two training sessions I’ve felt weak, my fingers have had an odd sensation of sore muscles. Not pain in any way but kind of what your legs feel like after a hard session of intervall training in the hills. On top of that Monday evening the rest of my body felt totally weak as well, couldn’t pull on any hold and generally didn’t get anywhere.

Yesterday I took a rest day and today was like comparing night and day. A total change. I felt incredibly strong and spent around three hours in the gym climbing mostly 7- to 7+ graded routes. It felt amazing.

A valuable lesson from this is to listen to your body. If you feel all weak and worn out it might be a good idea to rest for a bit, and let the body recover.
