My First Rope Climb To The Top

My First Rope Climb To The Top

So it’s been a long time coming. I’ve practiced and worked hard for this moment. I have expressed on my social media channels many times how defeated I felt by not being able to get up that rope.

Today was the day though. I did it and here’s the video to prove it, after the Kiehl’s unboxing.

My first tope climb to the top.

I didn’t actually touch the beam but it was so close and I was so scared. But I know I can. Now I know I can do it.

Before I did this rope climb, I had jogged 1 mile, did 10 front squats at 85# and 20 front squats at 65#. I had also attempted 2 rope climbs before this one.

When I came down off of this rope climb, I had to sit down on the ground but that didn’t last long because I felt that if I sat there, still, I was going to barf! So I had to get up and walk around. It was probably adrenaline, nerves, and fatigue.

I think I grinned the whole way on the drive home.

Thanks for reading (and watching) and show me your moxie!
