I had a crap week at the gym. Both in the weight room gym and the climbing gym. I'm just going to gripe and whine a bit, I'm afraid.
In the climbing gym I went to a "technique clinic" on Monday, and rapidly discovered that the person I talked to about it was misinformed and that the clinic was no help to me at all. Not to say it was a bad teacher or anything, just that it was really aimed more towards the beginner than anyone else. Not only was everything covered stuff I had learned before, it was also all stuff I had taught before. After that I worked on some problems with little success and then a guy I knew there wanted to play add-on, which was a stupid idea because he of course promptly added on moves that were too hard for me to do. Not much of a game. By the end of the night I just felt weak and useless and all I wanted to do was cry.
In the weight room the week started with me missing a workout due to an impromptu meeting with the boss. At the time I didn't think anything of it since this is the week wherein I'm supposed to do one day twice... I figured, "ah well, I guess it'll be just another 4-days on kind of week" Then a couple of days and another impromptu meeting or two later (my boss is in a manic phase), I miss another workout. Add to that the fact that it's now officially summer and the gym closes about 4 hours earlier than it used to and so twice I was ejected from the gym before I got everything done.
Hard not to feel like a fuckup this week... and like a weakling....
What do you do when you miss workouts and feel weak and pathetic?
