WELCOME TO CWC CELESTE WALL CLIMBING
Ok so this particular blog post has been in the works for about 2 months now…
I think the main reason I had yet to post this write up is mainly due to the fact that it’s been such a roller coaster both physically and mentally..
Physically speaking, well I injured my wrist climbing.. surprise! It wasn’t anything overly obvious at the time but I essentially kept repeating a specific move into this nasty undercling and eventually I felt something go “click” .. I knew I had tweaked something but I was mid way through teaching a class and could not seem to justify resting my wrist so I continued to climb on it..
The next morning when I woke up, I could barely pronate or supinate my wrist let alone put any weight on it. It was pretty obvious that I had done more damage then I had originally thought. In the initial stages I was getting a few different diagnoses.. One thing was consistent though. I had strained one or several ligaments and needed to take 6 weeks off from climbing. My heart sank when I got the news and I had to fight back the urge not to burst into tears. I was finally starting to feel pretty strong and getting super psyched for the comp season ahead. I knew that in order to stay motivated I would need to set new goals and focus my energy towards general fitness and cross training rather then getting hung up on not being able to climb.
World Cup Recap – Hamilton, Ontario & Vail, Colorado
I’m finally taking the time to reflect on the past 2 weeks where I climbed at my 2 very first World cups! It’s interesting to think back in time, if it was only a couple short weeks ago, look back and observe all that has changed, all the lessons learned and all the growth that has taken place. I will do my best to summarize my World cup experiences without creating feelings of boredom!
Here is just a snippet of my life as a climber and competitor and why climbing is so much more than just a sport, activity or hobby to me.
This competitive season started out as an open ended endeavor…
…and evolved into something far better than I could have imagined. When I started competing again this past October I had been back in the climbing game for about a year. After having taken a 5yr hiatus from climbing all together.
