Here is a small update of what I’ve been up to since my trip to Hueco Tanks in February.
I was feeling in good shape after the trip. Having a break of school and being able to get on the rock felt so good!
I came back to Montreal, and only couple days after, I competed in the Coupe Québec comp in Action Directe. I came in first place at this one, it was a good comp but unfortunately Mélissa (my coach) got hurt, falling from the last hold of the last problem in finals. Hopefully she’ll get better soon, at least for the summer time.
I also got injured approximately two months ago. I always warm-up before climbing, but not this time and I now regret it. I tried something a bit too hard and I felt something bad in my pinkie and it hurts for a while, even if I took some time off… Obviously, with my injury, the regionals and nationals didn’t go as well as I would have liked. I didn’t make finals at nationals making it to the 10th place.
I had couple acupuncture sessions and I think it helped me recover faster! I could climb with a lot less pain already the day after my first treatment.
Now, my finger is feeling great again and I’ve been able to train hard for the last couple weeks with in minds the World Cup in Hamilton next week end! (June 1st and 2nd)
If you want to watch the comp, it will be live on the IFSC website!
