Yesterday I went climbing at Sespe gorge with Dima and Pete and did the first two pitches of the tree route and the first pitch of a 5.7 crack to the left of the three. Super fun day! Still sick today, and taking a turn for the worse, so I'm starting on antibiotics.

I really de-trained during my trip to New Mexico and now I have to get my climbing form back. Since climbing isn't one of those things that come naturally to me, but rather something I have to work really hard at, it takes a lot to keep me in shape. So I went to the gym both yesterday and today, and I'm going again tomorrow. I don't do really hard cranking, just run up and down some easy routes and work a little on a medium or two. Basically, I'm just making sure my muscles get a little stretched each day.

The beginning

I should probably start logging my climbing exploits at this point. Spent all day at San Ysidro yesterday, with Ben and Dima. I did 4 routes to their 6. There's a really gorgeous 5.10a I want to try sometime... Only got up to 5.9- yesterday. A little sore behind the knees today, but not too bad.
