just wait until your rock climbing friends start making fun of your cycling habits for making your leg too heavy.

weird feeling to start going to the climbing gym and it's like a hangout club for people who all appear to be JUST LIKE ME. i wish i was more social. anyway i have damn ass tennis elbow so i gotta probably take a month off or more. sux because i was rapidly improving at bouldering, which of course the quick progression is why i have tennis elbow.

Feeling that.

I re injured a mtb injury in my shoulder stretching last week and can barely lift my arm over my head six days later. So much for getting good fast.

Definitely like my climbing pals better than my bike pals.

The climbers I fell in with are surprisingly more health-conscious than the cyclists. but I guess it makes sense; they're both super physically demanding, but you can't cheat climbing with expensive equipment, and cheeky pack tactics like you can with bikes, so it's more of a lifestyle.

I have been carefully doing all of the recommended strength exercises to prevent tendinitis and it seems to be working. I can’t bear stopping for a month or however long so I just force myself to take a least 2 days off in between sessions and stop well before I’d like to. Also being mindful of what I’m doing that’s putting excessive strain on that arm has probably not been bad for my technique. Long as there’s no pain I assume I’m safe but idk maybe I’m going to destroy my body

One of my attempts to get into climbing this happened to me :/ I ended up taking a few months off and when I came back (easing into it) it was fine. A few months stinks though.. do crunches? Learn rope systems?

You could also goto the gym when it's least busy and traverse trying to use as little hands as possible. I've heard of people holding tennis balls and using that to 'grab' the wall

Yeah in addition to not climbing very long or going very hard I’m being selective about the routes I’m climbing. But if I sense I’m never going to be able to climb longer or harder without aggravating it then I will undoubtedly have to stop for a few months. Just terrible to think about having to do that but that’s how it is sometimes

i have tried yoyo jiminy in central park. the manhattan schist is truely fantastic rock for climbing. just wish there was more of it that outcropped in the park.

i have always thought climbing gyms are probably terrible disease vectors, but yeah, this is the first time i have considered doing something about that. i went into the gym last night, which was the monthly $5 day pass ladies night and it was EMPTY.

anyway, annual ski trip to Whistler is this weekend. looks like a second year in a row of unicorn squamish conditions. in the 40s and dry. and all of seattle is too afraid to go anywhere right now so hopefully the crag isn't very busy.

i just ordered $250 of tension grips to build a hangboard / campus zone on my porch. at this point i don't really see climbing gyms being a thing again in 2020.

my gym has asked patrons to consider keeping their memberships going and I haven't officially cancelled yet but my money is not going to keep them from going out of business so I should probably just cut the cord

Lol

I also bought a hangboard Tuesday

Can't even do a pull-up so, who knows what good it'll do, but whatever.

if you have weights at home, buy a pulley that you can mount underneath the board then attach a rope to your harness, run it through the pulley, then attach weights to the other side to remove weight. as you train the pull-up and it becomes easier, remove weight progressively until you can do one at body weight.

if you don't weights at home, you can also buy a theraband and tie a loop at the bottom and fix it to something and use that to remove weight as you train.
