Continuing my weekend in good form with boulder qualifications going fabulously. It’s hard to squeeze into a few sentences everything running through my mind since Moscow but relaxed might be a good one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After not making semis in either of the first two World Cups, there was definitely pressure and yet at the same time it was important to remember my overall goal and reflect on the process. I felt super strong today in qualis, I set my PB in Speed yesterday and I’m excited for tomorrow ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s funny that I don’t scream during boulders but I’m definitely excited to be at the top of them 🦁 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Live stream starts at 09:30 local China time, link as per usual in profile ⤴️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎥 by @lenlenlemon ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @adidasterrex | @scarpana | @joerockheads | @verticalartclimbing | @flashedclimbing | @perfect_descent #verticalart #climbing #train #canada #instagood #picoftheday #photooftheday #athlete #igers #amazing #sports #fitspo #gymlife #power #fitfam #adventure #fitness #work #workhard #workout #strength #challenge #follow #ninja #gym #fun
