Bit of Bicep Bother

After two trips out with the axes I finally had an opportunity to head out rock climbing last weekend, the first time for 4 months. The plan was for a gentle day out with mates at Froggatt but after a few careful VS's for a warm up and on my 4th route of the day an attempt on Chequers Crack was literally cut short as I snapped my bicep tendon.That's at least another 3 months out. Operation tomorrow. Perhaps it's time to take up knitting or Golf (with full protective head gear)?

had the same injury a few years ago - complete rupture and op to retrieve bicep. Surgeon done a cracking job and i was back hanging off a pull up bar within 12weeks. A bit more attention to thorough warm up and stretching now. Take it easy dude.
