First outdoor climb

Managed to get to stanage this week. First time trad climbing in almost 18months. Found it intimidating. Knee felt strong, but lacked a little of the old endurance. Stretching is taking forever to make an impact. I'm down now to 93kg. Without running I'm finding it hard to burn sufficient calories to really shift the weight.

Te laptop went bam!
Lots of back and forth with the company. So have another.
Knee has been going from strength to strength.
The climbing came at around day 30. But this I fell may have been too early it felt wobbly and under strength.
Another month was had down the gym and then started.

Now I'm bouldering indoors about once a week and have been out side a few times, more due to poor weather than anything to do with the knee.
I am still having to keep up with the squats, side squats and leg extensions. This along with the balance work. If I let this slip the knee starts to get sore after a couple of weeks.

I completed the Inca trail in 2.5 days with full pack of 15kg. which isn't bad. The knee held up well.
