keen for plastic

I am not sure what is going on lately I hav been keen to climb on plastic.

I am not a huge fan of plastic holds or indoor climbing its like hitting a tennis ball against a wall. But I have been seeeing big gains in my fitness recently. Its good as my motivation has been dropping for rock. I have been getting to crags and seeing lines thinking I can't be arsed or I am not interested

One of my goals was to climb browns eliminate and I did that. Since Browns there has not been a line I have desperatly wanted to lead. I have lead some good routes including some 3* ones but nothing compares.

I have changed my focus a bit and the indoor stamina is putting me in good stead and with the new lead wall being open at rokt I think its time to push myself. I want to train I want to get fit and I want to get better at sports I want to be on form when I head to chorro later in the year. If I can get there fit and strong and with better understanding of tactics who knows what I can achieve?

Any way climbing tonight not sure where like

1 year on 25 years later

So the past year not much has changed. Still single (thats probably not gonna change), Still a geek (that will never change) still a complete punter (that will never change?), Town still in league 1, I am still weak as, I still lack self confidence.
What has changed I have moved out, I am now solid(?) at HVS, I have redpointed 6b, I have bouldered several font 6A/+'s, I own a house (well have a mortgage). I am playing football for an 11 a side team (well sort of). I have a new niece.

So I guess some stuff changed. So what is the plan for the next year ... I have no idea.

All I know is stanage is not inspiring, I want to get on sea cliffes, I am not arsed with the unconquerables.

Lack of blogging

Sorry for the lack of blogging. Will start again shortly just lacking in motivation.

I feel motivation is a big issue for me at the moment. I have not lack of enthusiasm but the motivation is just not there. I am really keen to climb but I get to the crag feel uninspired by lines that previously offered me so much inspiration.

I am forcing myself to have a rest week this week. I felt a sharp pain in my elbow while climbing on Saturday and I think it is a good idea to rest this and to try get some motivation back.

This rest week is hard work so desperate to climb but I know the rest will do me good!

Proper blog shortly.
