The fine line

Filed under wks 10-11

I’m in that place where no big changes happen.  I mean, slowly building up strength, slowly losing the limp, still feel flat footed, but feeling strong in the tendon and happy with my stretches.  Gotta say, after daveleft and chip both re-ruptured, I took a nice long weekend of light duty.  My need to get back to running is certainly not so strong that I’ll risk that.  Walking the fine line between working it hard enough, but not too hard.

The crazy thing about their ruptures were that they were not done when working out.  And this sounds right to me.  I mean, I have no problem on the eliptical, on the treadmill, on the bike, and when I’m doing freeweights.  I’m focused on my leg then.  Every motion is designed with my leg in mind, and it’s all i can think about.  It’s when you’re NOT thinking about it that accidents happen.  So how do you think about it all the time, when by definition you can’t think about it when you’re not thinking about it… and NOT thinking about it is a product of feeling better and normal and strong and good.  Damn!  What a catch 22! 

So what’s the point?  NO idea.  I guess you can’t be too careful out there.  And you can.  “Do I contradict myself?  Very well, then, I contradict myself.”  Ah, well.  A toast to healing, however slowly it happens.
