A Kinder, Gentler Pandemic

Objective: Climbing Endurance

Training: (1) 5 rounds
55 move traverse
Rest as need between rounds

Notes: I was too ambitious during my technique practice session on Thursday, and inflamed my injured finger. Oddly, there was no pain. I rested on Friday. I did some light traversing today as a test. I can ignore they injury and still climb relatively hard. I much rather have it completely healed.

One thing that has helped the healing process in hand putty. Typically, I use it strengthen hand extensors because climbing is flexion dominate. I have found after playing with it my injured hand has increased ROM and decreased inflammation.
