A must-see attack

Yesterday I finaly got some time and watch BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE, by Haroun Souirji.

I highly recomend it, specially for those who want to go bouldering around Swiss or just get an extra shot of motivation. My finger tips were sweating more and more from the beggining to the end, plus the extra boulder clips…

All I can say is: I WANNA ROCK RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!

Part II: Training Days

After my trip to Germany, it was time to get back to training, although i got a little cold and had to rest a couple of days, I was able to make some hard good training after all around Barcelona and Nules.

I came back on monday and tuesday and wednesday I trained very hard, but the cold came out very strong at the end of that second training session. So I had to rest and have some medicines for three days (thursday, friday and saturday). Thing is on saturday took place the IV Open Bloc Terrassa, In spite of I was feeling a bit weak, I wanted to climb, but after two hours of qualifiers it started raining very very hard and competition was over. (although we could climb a bit later on when the sun came back for a while, but just for a while…)

On Sunday we (Agus, Olga, Bibiana, Miguel and me, plus some more that met allready there) went to a La Panxa del Bou Climbing Gym for some bouldering (not so hard stuff but long time).

Monday was a rest/computer work day.

The I headed to Esparraguera, where is based one of, for sure, the best Climbing Gyms in Spain: McPlaf. I really loved the variety of holds (mmm Volx...)There I had the chance to train very good for two days with Edu Marin (amazingly strog!!!) Berta Martin and Carlos Verduzco. It was really interesting and motivating to train there! So thank them and also David and Israel Macià for leting me in :-)

And then, dinner in BCN with Jaume Oliveras, with whom I would have two bouldering sessions on Thursday: first at Manolo's Gym, with plenty of volumes (crazy home made stuff); and then at La Salle, sharing moves with the BOUS!!!!!!! Then I was really dead, but we still had time for a nice dinner and a couple of beers!!!!

Friday: (deserved) restday and way down to Nules, Castelló. I peeked up Bibian, Nuria and Ariadna and we drove to Nules where we met lots of friends who also were there for the saturday's I Open Boulder Nules. This was, in my opinion, one of the best comps in Spain since years. There were 50 qualifying boulders to be done in 5 hous so everybody climbed a lot (really a lot), and the five people finals (5 girls, 5 mails, and 4 junniors due to ties). Of course there were things to be improoved in next edition, but it was awesome. At the end I got third, but it was the best motivating end for my death trainning week (I'm still recovering lol), and I hope they make more comps like this cause we had a lot of fun on high quality boulder problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Part I: Busy Days

Busy days after Wien WC. Of course a lot of training, but among it I had to do some "working" such as taking photos on Rally WildWolf 12h Penyal d'Ifach, some meetings, being at the table in local elections... This made me change my schedule a bit but at the end I could put it all together :-)
Also I went to Germany to shoot a short climbing movie which will be out in a couple of months so stay tuned for further information and teaser (coming soon) and of course, the film.

I Open Boulder Nules

Ja se que des del darrer post ha passat prou de temps i hi ha moltes coses que contar (el rally dle penyal, mini-trip a Alemanya, training per casa, Open de Terrassa, trainig per Barna i molt més), però abans de ficar-me al dia, recordar-vos que aquest dissabte 11 de Juny tindrà lloc el I Open de Boulder de Nules.

Aquesta serà la primera edició, però estic segur que en faràn moltes més. Es presenta un esdeveniment molt preparat, amb molta feina i il·lusió per part dels organitzadors, que ens faràn gaudir d'un dia de PURE BOULDERING. No només serà una compe, serà una concentració bloquera on cadascú podrà anar al seu ritme, competint o simplement apretant cantos uns amb altres i visitant els diversos estants que rodejaràn els blocs dissenyat per fer que tant dits com cap donin el màxim!!!!!!!!!!!

Aquí teniu l'enllàs amb els horaris al bloc oficial:
