Training update

It”s time to give a brief update. I had three good weeks of training, with some climbing over the weekend.

The fourth week I took off to get the recovery I desperately needed. In the following weeks I try to get back into bouldering, but I will continue doing push-ups and shoulder exercises to prevent injury in the winter.
