/ No exercise for a week... what do I do??
I've kind of forgotten what people do with their lives when they don't climb! any advice? (other than get a new UKC profile and spend the week trolling, which could be fun)
(climbing is exercise, but I have a friend who reckons climbing hard could count as a contact sport, what with possibly smacking into walls at high speed... sod that!)
That hardly fills the missing 20 odd hours of my week. maybe 2 or 3, sure, but what next?
Watch some good films - assuming you're allowed to watch TV for any length of time.
It's only a week!
Clean and wash all your climbing gear, lube cams and replace all that tatty ID tape?
Get some counciling......
That's what I should be doing. Maybe I should get my eyes lazered

1) Watch 'Breaking Bad' (you can sign up for free with Netflix).
2) Monkey Tennis.

Do some drawing.
Read a book
Learn a song
Play an instrument
Sew or knit
do a jigsaw
play video games
listen to music
do some flower arranging
make a junk model
sort out your filing cabinet
tidy out your kitchen cuboards
do all those little diy jobs you keep on putting off
write letters to people
phone a friend
That's why he had to have the eye surgery ;-)
That's rather short sighted though.
(i'll get my coat)
see if you can watch all of lost or 24. maybe an old tv series or two.
It's an opportunity. (:-))
that's my fear ;)
