Sunday 8 May 2011: Know limits
A very long time ago, Layla and I took up indoor climbing. It all went swimmingly until she lost some weight and I gained just enough to tip the balance sufficiently that one slip would have left me flat on the floor, and her and her billet flat on the ceiling.
My recent weight loss has probably put us back in the green zone, but I realised on today's (far too early) trip to Ratho (for a fourth birthday party) that I'd probably have never developed the cojones to do some of the stuff these folks were up to.
It's good to know your limits.
