More Training and Rhino, by Stevie Haston.
Just a few words, to keep me going, and possibly to keep you going. Good routes, and a bit of work. So the routes are good, and I had some good coaching work this week. So obviously you know the routes are good, but why is the coaching good? The coaching is good because these people invest in my knowledge, they buy into it, they believe, they copy, they do. You have to commit, without commitment you don't get anywhere.
When I tell people I only got good at climbing when I moved to France, and watched great French climbers, and climbed with some of them, people don't want to believe me. What about your previous routes, they ask? Well, they would have been easier. Much easier.
I need to train again, I need to learn again, I need to recharge again, yep the Rhino has to charge. Yep gonna jump into the training again, gonna get strong. Gonna do a few great routes.
I proscribed some training to a very good climber with high expectations this week, and will take my own advice. After all I have expectations of my own. Right?
Ps. Rhino top bit goes free at 7c+/8a, verily it is exposed.
