I went out to Summer Sweat Fest on Saturday. I was pleased with my climbing and result at the comp; I actually thought I would do much worse. I wasn’t climbing at my strongest on Saturday, and that was to be expected, since I took most of the last month off from training to rest after what was about ~16 straight months of training and competing. My body and mind needed it. I also had a bit of bad luck in that 2 of the 5 problems in quals needed a move that I cannot do (due to a knee injury last season). That certainly put me at a disadvantage! But I really enjoyed the problems and thought they were well-set. I had fun and the only downside was getting there late, which meant not enough time to socialize or warm-up!
