i can't believe i made it 4months (plus two more weeks before surgery) without climbing. but with 100% workload, up to 5times physio-therapy/week and some nice parties going on - time is running down fast. as i have a clear vision of what will be in 8months from now (highlander - yessss) and a lovely girlfriend who takes care of me - i am even able to enjoy the different lifestyle (the physio and party-part) at the moment... ;)
sitting is still an issue and last week i had stretched my hamstrings too hard and suffered for some days... but i am still getting a little bit better every day. 2weeks and i will be on my first little jog again, 8weeks and i will be on my first 4a-top-rope again. can't wait for that, but i have to hold myself back as my tendons still need time to properly heal onto the bone.
i am sure many of you will already have seen the movies below. otherwise i highly recommend to watch them. i was just blown away when i had seen the first two "scarred for life" episodes from nathan bancroft from achromatic.tv and i just can't stop watching them. the music fits so well, the (filming and) editing is just outstanding. the two episodes show pure dedication, from the climbers and from the filmmaker. in my eyes they are amongst the very few climbing flicks that really catch and transport the process and they really got not just the climbing, the got "IT"!!!*
*but be cautious, may you don't want to watch them as they can make you want to go bouldering NOW!!! "arrrghhh" - i want to go bouldering - NOW!!! ;)
