Monday, 11 January 2016 - Pistol Training

Dot Torture, CLEAN! 50/50 at 5 yds with the Glock 19. 

Fired a total of 250 rounds. 

Saturday, 9 January 2016 - Indoor Climbing

Did about 90 mins of climbing-a mixture of auto-belays and bouldering with 1 top rope on a Slab. 

I felt a little frustrated with the boulder problems, but sent a 5.7 and 5.9 on auto-belay. I also did my first Slab route (I'm not sure of its rating), it was a really cool way to build confidence on small holds.

Monday, 4 January 2016 - Indoor Climbing

Fingers are still a little tender and I'll be climbing again on Thursday so I didn't do any bouldering, even though I really wanted to! 

I stayed on the auto-belay walls and tried to focus on smooth(er) footwork, better hip movement, and endurance. 

Taped the ring and middle pulleys on both hands again and tried to stay away from fingerey holds. All 4 fingers are a little tight leaving the gym, but a finger ice bath when I get home will help them out. 

Saturday, 2 January 2016 - Indoor Climbing

Spent about 4 hours at the indoor climbing gym. Finger pulleys on both hands are pretty sore so I used the "H method" of taping my ring and middle fingers which seemed to help. 

Still can't get the black V0/1 problem on the front face of the Boulder, but I'm getting closer...need more finger strength, hand-eye coordination, and smoother footwork. 

Also tried top rope climbing 2 routes, a 5.7 and 5.8. On the 5.7, I got to the last hold before the top twice and my grip strength faded on me to the point that I wasn't even able to hold onto a good-sized pincher. The 5.8, wasn't even close. Lol

Friday, 1 January 2016 - Long Run

6 miles in Zone 2. 

Time: 1:10:56

Not a great effort, but kept the HR below 155 the entire time.

2016 - Let's try this again

First meal of 2016: Dolce Breakfast Bowl. 

I'm tired of being fat! And with my new love for rock climbing, these extra 20-30 pounds are making me not as good of a climber as I could be.
