Went back to Big Rock today for my second trip to the gym. This time I brought along a friend, Megan, who’s starting climbing too. I showed her a few of the easier routes before we starting taking turns on the wall. I managed to nail the brown route which had been eluding me last time (either a V0 or V1) and then started trying a few V1 routes. Feeling much less sore and a better grip today. I’m hoping to be able to make a V1 on Friday when I go back. I feel like that would be a decent accomplishment for 1.5 weeks of training.
I’m going to make a protein shake here before bed to help with the muscle growth/strength. I’ll share my favorite recipe that I like to drink right after a good workout:
- 1 Banana
- 1-2 servings of unflavored whey protein
- About 12 ounces of whole milk
- Chocolate syrup
Blend well for a protein shake that you’ll actually want to drink for it’s flavor. (who knew?)
