Sometimes, I surprise myself

Last night's training was a deadly killer one for me. Not only was I sleepy sleepy, but my left elbow is really acting up and so I was back to that stage where I can do something but I really can't do anything. Forget about jumping with my left hand (and because sandra's right elbow is injured, these are all the routes that I get) ... Welcome to looser/injury land, Claudia!!! Woohoo!!

We did round on specific holds (crimps, pinches, pockets) and finally I saw some progress: on the lizard wall I hanged on the designated holds and! I only dropped about half way on the 38 degrees wall (I usually drop when I get on that section because I am so hardcoded that I can't adapt to not using the specific hold that I've been using for ages now). Then we went upstairs to do assisted one-arm pull-ups (only right hand for me, yay! and! progress!! Doris the TickCross only had to push me up for a little wittle bit :) ), hangs with weights, laddering and some locks with weights, woohoo!!).

But this is not what I want to talk about. We went to dinner/supper afterwards at some food court. And guess what! I realized that I HEART prime numbers!!! Yup. My locker at the yoga gym is always 53. Used to have 53 and 51 but I ditched 51 because I had an epiphany yesterday and realized it was not prime. Then, last night, when we sat down at our table (number 16), I remember thinking "too bad we're not sitting at the next one" (17). I am so boring, right? It could be worse!!!! I could like perfect numbers (6, 28, 496, 8128, ...) which would leave me stuck on only two lockers at the gym!! Crawling back into my hole now ...

yes, tickcross, i have thought of that too! will get back to you on that idea as soon as i confirm with sandra as well :))

-san, i think it's ok like that ... i set routes for right hand, you set routes for left hand and then everybody is happy (or forever mauled:)) )

Oops I only deleted my comment cos it had a grammar error. Haha.

I love reading about what you guys are up to. Are ya'll doing one handed pull-ups now? That is AMAZING, I'm gonna have to stop myself from gushing because I agree that a good climber is not one who can do a one handed pull-up, but STILL. ALLEZ. (: Must come watch you guys climb now and be amazed.
Hope to bump into you at Science Claud, take care, hope that elbow gets better real soon.
