It's that time again: a reminder that while we attempt to mitigate injuries by using proper form during our training, injuries happen. When they do occur, we have to treat both the physical and psychological effects. The physical rehab is often straightforward, if not a bit tedious, but the mental rehab can have serious repercussions on your future fitness.
On Saturday I was finishing up my workout with some heavy prowler pushes in the alley when I felt something hit me in the back of my left leg. I turned around, only to realize that nobody was behind me, and that the feeling of being hit was actually a serious strain of my calf muscle. I spent the rest of the weekend and most of Monday unable to put any weight on the injured leg. I allowed myself about an hour on Saturday to feel sorry for myself, and then I put all those feelings aside and planned what the next few weeks would look like. While the rehab will likely take a several weeks, it'll probably be a couple of months before I regain full strength and mobility in my leg. I know, however, that with the support of Chris, Armen, Annie, and the rest of the CF818 family, I'll have little trouble in coming back as strong as ever!
If you're dealing with an injury and it's got you feeling down, come talk to your coaches and we'll help you plan on how to stay engaged and recovering actively!
