I suppose I should elaborate a little. I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been feeling very, “bleh.” I know one of the reasons I feel this way, is because I felt very weak today at the gym. I was there with a couple guys that I’ve been climbing with lately. I don’t know why, but lately I’ve felt like I haven’t been able to do anything at the climbing gym. I’m sort of worried about going down South in a couple weekends. It’s not that I am worried that something bad will happen or anything, but I just don’t think I’ll be “as good” as I could/should be.
It’s very annoying, but it shouldn’t be. I’m not as good as the guys I try to keep up with at the gym. I shouldn’t be. They’ve been climbing a lot longer than I have (which is only a year or so). It’s just that 2 weeks ago (before I went to Grand Rapids and fell off my schedule), I felt as if I was able to keep up with them a lot more. I haven’t been able to get to the gym as much nor as regularily as I’d like in the past 2 weeks, and I think it’s started to show. Who knows, though. I could just be full of it, and am only thinking this way because of the way my mind seems to be set.
I think it started with that stupid test. And it feels as if it just keeps compounding. It most likely isn’t, and there’s no reason it should feel like this, it just does.
Ahh the joys of wanting to be great…(key word being “wanting”).
