Michaela Kiersch, who did an 8c+ last Sunday in Red Rriver Gorge, is setting new standards by doing two this weekend: Southern Smoke and Fifty Words for Pump in a total of ten goes. To make the story even more impressive, it is a seven hour drive from Chicago to Red River Gorge, where she trains a competitive group five times a week. At the same time she is studying at the university.
How can you best explain this extreme progress?
Honestly I have no idea. I must be stronger than ever and going in with no pressure and no expectations has definitely helped me.
How do you train and What are your goals?
I make my own program depending on what my goals are. Usually RRG on the weekends and power/power endurance Tuesday-Thursday.
Just keep improving.
