I’ve been using the Strong app to record workouts. Super nice, super free. This is the time of year when my motivations are beginning to be torn across various interests. There is snow on Mt. Hood, alpine objectives are possible, but I’ve got to close out my running mileage for the year.

I pulled down Training for the New Alpinism from my bookshelf and skimmed through the strength training section. It seems all very basic to me, but the single thing I find I miss most is simply putting on a heavy pack and spending time on some easy alpine terrain. I’ll definitely be doing more of that this winter to prep for Spring climbing.

My winter climbing boots will be here soon. I returned a pair of La Sportiva G2 SM boots b/c of a manufacturing defect – there was a huge glob of dried glue in the left boot that I could feel through the liner. New boots will arrive soon and then I’ll want to break them in on the mountain. Patience, patience, patience.
