Temptation all around

Well, there are number of new problems at the gym that I would love to jump on but I know it is not going to help my finger. I think the hardest part of finger injuries is watching all your friends work on cool boulder problems while you must take it easy and traverse.

Back to reality

I realized that my finger will never get better if I continue to climb on projects. I know, I know, duh! So the new game plan is no tape with alternating sessions of five easy climbs five times each and traversing. Today I started traversing and spent 1 hour and 10 mins on the wall before coming off. I switched between hold sizes depending on how tired I was getting. I'm feeling pretty wiped-out to say the least.

Back to the gym

I return to the gym over the last two days with some success. By shortening my time there and heavily taping my finger I can get in a reasonable session. Today is a rest day; time to drop by MEC to buy more tape,
