So kash and I are sitting in the Boston airport awaiting our flight home. The competition was a super good time and Kash ended up taking 2nd! As for me, it did not go so well. Qualifiers was set really tough and I ended up 3rd going in to finals. The finals route was set very well, but unfortunately was set to destroy me. Most recently i have acquired two injuries in both of by knees and in one crucial section of the route you had to do a double heel hook that allowed you to make it up to the headwall. Hanging there I went through a series of thoughts and in all actuality I should have just let go. Unfortunately I went for it, messed up sequence and finally my right knee gave out and I came swinging off the wall. Once I was down my knee wasn't in too much pain but once the adrenaline wore off I felt as if I could barely walk on it. I popped a shit ton of Ibuprofen and iced it well. It feels decent today but still very sore. Looks like I'm going to have to schedule that doctors appointment I really did not want to make. Overall though it was a cool experience! This was Central Rocks first major indoor competition and I have to say they did just as well as any other competition I have been to. The setting was really good (besides qualifiers being SO hard) and the people that make up the CRG were super nice. I can't wait for the next event they throw!
For now it's back to Chatty. The next few days are looking in the low 60's so it' time for another round of attempts on the project!!! Also, next month Kash and I are going to attend the River Rock Competition in Richmond, VA. So, until then we'll be working & training.
Congrats to all the finalist this weekend, and thanks again to everyone at the CRG!!
