After the first qualification I had to wait a long time before I could start in the second route. I used all the time I had to warm up and to see how other climbers solved the problems in the second qualification. That appeared to be a very bad idea. I had started warming up for the first route at 9:30 and finished my second around 17:30. At that time, I was totally exhausted from all the tension and holding my focus for so long. I felt weak and empty in the second route and fell way too early. A nerve breaking hour followed, because I was going to be just in or just out semi finals. Luckily, it was just enough and I was allowed to climb once more the next day :)

After some ice cream and a dive in the Garda lake I already felt much better. It's time for some more training now. Next up is the World Championship in Paris, starting 11 days from now. I am really excited to climb there, since it is probably gonna be a really BIG event!
