Injury Update

Lots has happened since my last post. Well. One thing. The start of my senior year at Missouri State. Did you know studying kinesiology involves needing to know trigonometry? Yeah, me either.


I feel I was misled. This is exercise SCIENCE not exercise MATH. UNFAIR.

Anyways. Enough of my complaining. I have been known to not listen to my body and exercise through an injury. So far, I haven’t ended up making myself permanently disabled as a result. Thankfully. Because I know better. I’m going to school for this. I know the consequences of not listening to my body. I also know signs and symptoms better than the average Jane. So when I put myself on the swimming/overhead activities disabled list, I was somewhat concerned that I wouldn’t be able to follow through.

But here we are, two and a half weeks later and I haven’t set foot in the aquatic center! This is cause for celebration. I have successfully completed my “rest and recovery” stint. The nagging pain that was in my shoulder is gone. I have been able to do some limited overhead movements without pain. I have “cleared” myself to begin limited, light intensity shoulder work.

No triathlon on Saturday like I had hoped 😦 but long term is what matters.
