Ruptured the achilles playing lacrosse June 11 last year, surgery on July 31 (the ruptures was originally misdiagnosed.  My first game back tonight, felt rusty but good as new.  Not too bad for a 50-year-old midfielder.  Still working on the strenghtening and getting the speed back, but it felt wonderful to be out there again. 

For those of you new to this, hang in there - IMO, its not nearly as bad an injury as I feared.  Work hard in rehab and you’ll be fine.  Re. returning to what you love, I’ll leave you with a Morgan Freeman nugget from Shawshank:  get busy living or get busy dying. 

Good luck all and God bless!

    That’s about the same schedule I followed for returning to competitive volleyball after I tore my first AT 8-odd yrs ago, and I also felt good as new. (And I could barely REMEMBER being 50!)
