May I recommend an overuse injury? Try this plan: Selectively remember how incredibly rad and awesome you were in your twenties, then set yourself up with a brutal training regime to get back to a level of fitness you might never have actually attained in your earlier life. You should hear some "pop" sounds on your first hard session at the gym. Top it off with a bitterly gobbled amuse-bouche of a half dozen cinnamon rolls at Lamar's. This has been my plan for quite a few years. Works well!

This was also an effective plan for me. Except instead of cinnamon rolls, I started running ultra marathons while my finger healed. Took a year, and I lost 25lbs of muscle. I turned into one of those skinny runner types who could barely do a pull up. About half way back now and wishing I could be as strong as I am while climbing, but as light as I am while running. Or 20 year old and do both.

Just re-read a lot of these. Got me smiling. Thanks all. Bad news is that I've been able to climb 2x per week (bouldering only) the past few months so have destroyed a lot of the great results this advice has delivered.

Hope y'all are doing as poorly in the goals of this thread.

Get a job as a wildland firefighter and the drive by some of the ripest climbing spots in the country like the largest monolith in Oregon ( wolf rock) on a daily basis , but you'll never get to climb it because you sold your soul to the federal government and by the time you get you first day off in 21 days they will have worked you into the ground so hard that you just want to drink. I still do love me job by the way lol Sam Spuds
