J took half of the day off today, so we went climbing quite early. At first the gym was packed with elementary school kids – all with stars in their eyes and loving climbing. Half an hour later, we were almost alone in there. I climbed the 6B a couple of times again, just to make sure that managing it the first time wasn't a fluke. I even noticed a new 6B+ route that is going to be my next project. As soon as my fingers return to their normal size.

I was hoping to get a run in today too, and thought about running to the gym. Run commuting, however, has to be planned carefully. In this case, I should have thought ahead and left my climbing gear with J – no way I was running 10 km with a heavy backpack in order to go climbing. It all worked out for the best, though. My foot needs some rest. It doesn't hurt, but it feels like a muscle is strained, between the arch of the foot and my ankle. I can run tomorrow instead. In my VFFs. Too soon?
