Getting back on the horse

Not a real horse of course, but a metaphorical one. So, if you’re going to be pedantic about it, this Sunday i was getting back on the wall. The climbing wall at that is.

Penny was booked into the taster session, her Christmas present, and enjoyed it enough to book herself into the beginners class next weekend.

Me, I took the refresher course to make sure I remember how to tie off, belay safely etc. It was great fun! I can’t wait to go back again! Sure, I’m no way in the same shape as I was back in uni, and I do have about three stone more weight to drag up the (artificial) rock face, but that made no difference at all. I knew I should have got back into it earlier! Hopefully I’ll mamage to get out and climb at least once per week, even if it means getting there straight from work, climbing and then going straight home to bed.
