The wait for healing

I have not actually climbed since before I took the nose dive into the sagebrush in Wyoming last week. I have kept KT Tape on my left knee to facilitate the reduction in swelling and pain, which is slowly improving. I am at the climbing gym, salivating over the new bouldering problems that were set two days ago and wondering if I should at least try to climb today. The intellectual and pain-sensing parts of my brain say that I should wait until tomorrow and climb with Emily for my birthday instead of jeopardizing that by attempting to climb today. Not being able to climb ad lib drives me insane! I am trying to be smart about this injury management process, though. That will ultimately allow me to climb more, so that must take precedence over my desire to climb prematurely. It is no simple task to keep myself off the wall, trust me!
