It was the first GB Development Squad training at Awesome Wall Sheffield. We received our new training kit, which is really smart from Berghaus. It felt different being part of such a large squad and spending all our time in our respective LTAD tiers and incorporating lead and speed into the training weekend. Being on a lead rope made a change for me and I think I did alright, especially at racing up rope climbs. Then it was on to some boulders which were good fun. I topped the majority of the comp style blocs set by Rob and Dave and enjoyed working the more difficult ones. We also had a session of conditioning doing some serious core work which I am keen to master. This was then all followed by a nutrition and lifestyle talk from Lu. It was a cool weekend and nice to catch up with old mates and see new faces on the squad. Thanks to management, coaches and everyone involved in making it happen.
