It is not every weekend I get to travel to a "new country" and luckily I got to see a little bit more then the hotel and the competition arena. The city Ljubljana was really nice.
Over to the climbing:
The first day was one of the worst qualifiers I´ve ever had. It and I did not feel at the top of my game at all, I couldnt pull properly. Luckily I managed to flash 2 problems and got through as the last one making the semis.
Before warming up for the semis I felt a bit better, I stretched a lot, as my back was really sore, but when I started to warm up I had the same feeling like yesterday, and my expectations were rather low. Luckily I managed to climb a bit better then I thought I will, and managed 2 boulders, and was really happy to end up in 11th. After the semis we went to eat in great Ljubljana, but we were too tired to go watch the comp, I feet like I´ve been hit by a bus or something, so watching it from the bed was much more comftertable:) Really impressed with Anna taking her 4th. straight victory, well done!!
My very important flash in quallis, would be out if I fell once..
My 1. boulders in the semis. Glad I did it, not usually the best on these kind of boulders.
Last boulder in semis. Really happy I did this one. I suck at catching, and thought the end was hard and tricky!
Really happy with the organization of this comp. with shuttlebus from the hotel to the gym, routsetting and everything! really well done!
Tomorrow, Anja and I will go to Innsbruck, to train/rest/work (Anja)/study (me)/ and be tourists and eat lots of ice cream!!!
Watch us next weekend in Innsbruck!:)
