Rest days best days!

As I explained in my previous post, I wasn’t feeling so strong, and it was frustrating not to know why. I’ve taken it easy for the last couple of days, and I’m making good use of a bad weather spell for double restdays now. That gave me some time to think…

Things I should do different

The most important and underlying thought is to stop worrying. If I feel bad, so be it! Finding out why, is important, but counting the remaining days and worrying what to do is not productive. I’ve been having some headaches, and I just accepted I must have picked up something that’ll go away anytime soon.

I must admit I was a bit stressed filming for project-9b, since our timeframe was short. I think this has been the first external pressure I’ve felt, and I decided to let it be the last. This project is something I care about, something I love to share with people, and I don’t want it to be influenced by external factors. I’ve felt this before, climbing in front of the camera is always different, but one lesson I learned is to not let it influence your climbing.

Patience once again is the word that comes up, and as I keep saying: Rest days best days! I sometimes forget that not only skin and body need rest, but also the mind. During the last two days I’ve felt power and motivation (or positive spirit) come back, so let’s see what happens.

I’ve updated the section Projecting tips, as this past week I’ve learned more about it than ever before!
