My second week of ankle rest. It is a bit better again, but still a world away from 100%. I have started the process of getting someone to take a look at it and hopefully will be able to get this done sooner rather than later.
 

Training Diary
Day Commentary Stats
Monday Further upgraded fingerboard session as per here. Reduced the sizes of holds on two exercises. May need to do this session a few times before moving on again.

Exceptions:

  • 2c. A bit shaky on these newly upgraded sets, particularly the later ones with the right hand on the larger hold.
  • 6b. Again rather shaky on these new exercises, the second pull-up with the right hand on the larger holds was week for the second two sets.

Tuesday Rest ankle.
Wednesday Rest ankle.
Thursday Repeated upgraded fingerboard session as per here. Still rather hard in places.

Exceptions:

  • 2c. Still a bit shaky on these sets, particularly the later ones with the right hand on the larger hold.
  • 6b. Still rather shaky on these exercises, the second pull-up with the right hand on the larger holds was week for the second two sets.

Friday Rest ankle.
Saturday Rest ankle.
Sunday Rest ankle.

 
Might try some gentle cycling next week and will see what a specialist has to say about my ankle.

Progress against Short-term Goals

No outdoor routes this week.
No cycling due to ankle.
No running due to ankle.
Have kept up with at least two fingerboard sessions each week for a while. I’m now at a set of exercises where I find a few of them quite tough. So if I can step it up further than this, I will definitely feel that I am seeing strength gains.
No outdoor bouldering this week.

 
Progress against Medium-term Goals

Parked for the present due to the ankle.
