Unfinished Business...

Unfinished Business...

We all have unfinished business somewhere...what's yours?!

 

Unfinished business...it can keep me up nights!

Those projects that just slipped away...what if I had split fingered that hold...maybe i should have moved my foot first...

Now that spring is here and the snow is clearing, the unfinished business is once again rearing its, well I won't say ugly head, but you know what I mean...

Maybe if I had worn a moccasym on one foot and the velcro vcs on the other...

Yah, it has been MONTHS and I am still running through all the options of what if...but I think that's OK. It is good to evaluate as long as the resultant is not paralysis by analysis. I actually enjoy these beasts that refuse to roll over and play dead! And I enjoy the process of mincing the one-hang or 4 bolts-clipped-send-that-doesn't-count ascents to their constituent elements to see if one day something "pops" and the path suddenly gets brighter...

Maybe more pull-ups, push-ups and flies...

Supplemental training, yup, check done that...now, let's get to the crag and see what happens...
