That was fun, but I remember coming back home often with blue spots all over my body, and once I had even a mild neck injury. If you are concerned about injuries, as for me, running (jogging) looks much safer

No knees, no shoulder... Must be quite frustrating if you're into climbing. I just wonder how do you deal with the issues of descending a mountain as it puts high load on your knees (far more than jogging, even if using the trekking poles).

Include a few occasional kayaking trips to the Ardennes, and it won't be that boring Kayaking/canoeing outdoors is quite fun, I've done it a couple of times.
