climbing at night makes me a good girl

June 28, 2010

At the start of the summer, I bought a (perhaps ill-advised) summer membership to a local bouldering gym.  Bouldering, for those of you who don’t, well, live in Boulder, more or less amounts to climbing things that aren’t very tall.  Therefore, you don’t use ropes, and things tend to be more about the challenge of the route than endurance issues.  So I’m told.  Anyway, I am terrible at climbing of any sort, but it’s a lot of fun.  I go to the bouldering gym more often than the other one (three) because you don’t need a partner.  Handy, that.

Anyhow, I haven’t been going much, due to general slackerness.  Tonight I went for the last 45 minutes or so before closing, and gah.  Gah!  Grip strength has returned to zero.  Alas, I’ll just have to build it back up.  In the meantime, though, I’ve discovered a handy side-effect of the post-climbing spaghetti grip: it’s really, really hard to type or use a mouse.  Therefore, I have no choice but to cut short my nightly time-wasting forays into internetland.  Climbing makes me a good girl!  Yay!

Of course, this also means that I can’t comfortably do the dishes tonight.  Such a shame.  :-p
