Rock Climbing

C and I had a date a few weeks back (and for reasons unknown to me I'm just now blogging about it). We went rock climbing! Ok, well no one told me that I was gonna have to use muscles. That shit was hard at times. Also, next time I do this I will cut my nails BEFORE attempting to grab onto something the size of a piece of gum and pulling my body weight in a vertical motion. My nails went POP POP POP. Well, lets just say that I did a lot more belaying than I did climbing :) Afterwards we went out to dinner and then to a friends for a little garage partying. All in all we had a fabulous time.

The next morning we went bowling with her sister and her husband. It was a lot of fun. I was so proud of myself because neither of these things (rock climbing and bowling) are something I would normally do. I have a bad habit of being creatively challenged (lazy) and don't tend to want to do things out of my comfort zone. Gee, guess the anti-depressants are working.

Rock climbing? Holy moly! I'd be afraid of hurting more than just my nails!

It sounds like it's all good though, and I'm glad for you.

Rock climbing! I don't think I would have done that even in my daredevil days. Good for you!!

Did you hurt like hell the next day?

It was really fun but I got worn out easily, lol. I'm a wuss. It was fuckin hot in there too. Ewwww I don't like to sweat with my clothes on. I did hurt the next day, considering I'd used muscle that thought they were on a permanent vacation.
i went to an indoor place and loved it. did you make knock all the pins down. what do they call that, a strike?
You didn't cut your nails?! Did you wear a skirt and high heels, too? hehehe

Good job! Color me impressed. :)

You're a braver woman than I! Rock climbing? The thought of it makes me feel tired. :)

Oh wait, I didn't makes this clear. We went to an indoor rock climbing gym. I'm not adventurous enough to climb a REAL rock. Oh hell to the no!

Afuntanilla, I did get a couple of strikes, however I also had a couple of frames where I didn't knock any down at all. It's a shame really.

Bent, what's wrong with wearing a skirt and heels??? Had to give my girl something to look at! hehehe

Jules, it was definitely a workout. Yet at the same time it felt good to do something different and exert some energy in a new activity. ;)
