(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

I'm tired.

Myself and Dan were climbing at the gym tonight, and after a while we started bouldering some routes from last week's competition. Normally I should be doing routes that are rated 60-70 - but tonight the hardest one I did was 120- and I onsited an 80. The 120 I had been trying on Saturday, but never got it. Tonight I just walked up to it and did it. And that was right after redpointing a 5.11. Yikes.

When I got to the gym I was pretty tired... I didn't have much of a dinner, and I don't usually like bouldering, but after a while I got into the groove of it and all the pieces just came together. After it was all said and done I was still able to do 10 pullups on the hang board.

Driving home I was trying to figure out why I was able to pull off so many hard climbs tonight with a lot less effort than I normally give, and I think it all boils down to me letting off some aggression / frustration from work. It pretty much sucks right now for me at my job. I'm sure I have got at least as much frustration as I did working for m1. I like the work I do, and I like most of the people, but the current situation I'm in just blows, and there is nothing I can do about it.

Oh well, back to my pet projects.
