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.
