and it shouldn’t be. But I promised a few weeks ago to be more honest and authentic on my blog, so here goes. Many of you know I had my knee scoped out on Tuesday to clean out some frayed cartilage. It’s not a new injury persay as much as an old nagging one.
For three months I managed swelling and pain in knee with advil and ice. I’ve been training 5 days a week, olympic lifting two and kind of just dealing with it. After the amount of time I spent training on a bum knee my uncle decided it was time to just clean it out and move on. It’s a common procedure and one that’s really quite easy compared to my achilles. None the less it’s incredibly annoying.
So many athletes train injury and annoyance free. I appraently have not been blessed with that track record, and quite frankly shame is a very real emotion that crosses my mind. How could I get hurt…. again…. why am I the one dealing with this…..again…. What am I doing that’s so different than everyone else…???? And of course it’s all internal questions yet alone to deal with what everyone else is going to say that I’m hurt again.
At the end of the day I can’t worry about the why’s or the ‘what theyre going to say’ I can only focus on the endless list of things I can do the next few weeks while I return to normal and of course the fact that the open isn’t for another 5 months. More than enough time to be ready. At the end of the day I can do what I can do and that’s all I can do so that’s what I need to focus on.
