I just got home from a week of rest in France. I had five days of great climbing in the sun, and I really enjoyed it. All the hard training the last couple of months, has caused me a finger injury. It is nothing serious, but it kept on getting worse every day. My coach and physiotherapist told me to take it easy for a whole week with easy climbing and a lot of alternative training. And honestly, I feel like I have done enough of that kind of training for a LOOOOONG time (because of the accident last September). After two months of easy climbing earlier this year, I figured it was better to do something else. So I decided to climb outdoor. A lot of people told me rock climbing is better for finger injuries, so a couple of clicks on the Internet and my tickets were booked. Luckily I have some friends living in France, so I visited and traveled with them. We climbed in Cimai, Gorges du Loup and Orpierre.

 

My focus for the trip was to heal the painful finger, climb a lot of different routes and have fun. The trip was great, the climbing fantastic and the finger is better, so I am really happy I decided to go on this trip.

Now it's just two weeks until the season starts in Edinburgh, and I am really excited. All the traveling and competing this year will be GREAT!!!! It's definitely the best time of the year :-)

By the way, all the pictures are from Cimai and are taken by Chris Reddy.
