a young girl hocks her wedding rings

Climbed better tonight, but not great. Officially strained the ring-finger pulley tendon in the palm of my left hand, which means that I have to tape the hand up in a bizarre series of figure 8s to support the tendons while they heal (but I have pretty pink and yellow sports tape!) and it means that I can't completely rely on my left hand to take my weight, especially on a crimpy hold.

Still, got up a new hard route (probably a 9+) and did some other challenging things. Going back on Wednesday. I really need to make sure I'm climbing at least twice a week; otherwise I backslide. And thrice is better, if I want to make progress.

Pretty sure I had something else to say, but I guess not.

I have not, for my sins, gone for a run in two weeks; tomorrow that needs to change, or I'm going to lose all my cardio condition. And that, likewise, would be sad. (Well, I did go paddling on Saturday; that counts a little.) Anyway, tomorrow morning is supposed to be cool. I get up, dammit, and I run. Then I come back here and write 2000 words of Range of Ghosts before I have to go pick up the CSA.

I'm at 48,000 words. In a minute here, I'm going to see if I can kill another 2000 by bedtime, because half a book would be a good thing to sleep on. (Actually, I'm pretty sure this sucker is going to run to 120K, but 50K is still the psychological Half A Book point.

And I can see it from here.

All right. Mush, you huskies. A cold wind is howling in the night.


It's just occurred to me that over the time I've been reading your blog, you climbs you tackle have got harder and harder and harder. I'm very impressed with your staying power.
Hee. That is the goal. Progress! My current goal is to get better at 5.10s, and maybe tackle a 5.11 someday... (I have gotten on a couple, but been unable to do much with them.)

Really need to drop another 40 pounds for that... lest I want even more strained tendons.
