Preparation for the Speed Competition Season - Edyta Ropek

Preparation for the Speed Competition Season - Edyta Ropek
March 21, 2014 - 

I am exactly one month before the start of the world cup series in speed climbing. I’m finishing phase of the toughest workouts, already thinking about the first starts. The winter time I worked very well, rebuilding muscle mass in the injured leg, so that I could return to normal training.

Our Journey to Mallorca was less than stellar... Sunday 1:00pm My girlfriend (Maddy) and I checked in for our first flight out of Detroit Metro airport. Check in was ok, as was security except my wonderful girl friend (who I love so much) lost my water bottle…oh well. After we got through security we had plenty of time before our flight. Our flight to Chicago was delayed in order to fix the mechanism that supplies oxygen to the cockpit. I guess that’s important. We also had to gate check our bags because the plane was...

So much has been going on this summer it’s been hard to keep track of everything: Lots of comps, busy at work, and plenty of training and outdoor climbing.Most recently, I’ve been competing at the Summer Sweat Fests. This competition series is not sanctioned for CEC points, but competitors from across Ontario come out and have their shot at the title and big prize money. Aside from cash and bragging rights, this series serves as an excellent tool to practice my competition mentality. When the beach weather hits and the real rock becomes climbable it can be harder to...
