I suddenly had no drive to do any training, climbing or socialising. My body was screaming out for rest and I didn't realise at the time that I needed rest and lots of it. I have had slumps in motivation before, but not like this, for the next 3 weeks I pretty much ate in bed and went to work. Sometimes, I would fall asleep with food in my mouth hahaha. Great example from a dental hygienist!
Finally, when I got my ass back on the wall, I felt great! My body was healed and I was just climbing for fun. None of this "Must Send" or feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't climb very well. I've also just spent the last few weeks out of my comfort zone, woo slabby ledgy climbs at Kangaroo point (our local inner city quarry chossey ledge fest)
What I've Learnt:
- If you are as obsessed with climbing as me, you will feel motivated again!!
- Listen to your body, you only have one. Look after it!
- Always remember why you climb, do it for yourself no one else.
