Injuries happen. They are part of the game. Every athlete experiences them at some point in their lives. All that being said, that doesn’t make them any easier.
Relative to some of my peers, I have been quite lucky on the injuries over my career. Save a broken nose or finger, a few muscle tears, and the normal bumps and bruises that come with a long, tough season, I have been relatively injury free.
Unfortunately, in our most recent game against Brunell, I jumped, landed wrong, and rolled my ankle pretty badly. For me, there is nothing worse than having to sit out and feeling like you are letting your team down. I know my body absolutely needs rest to recover and I plan to do just that, but I also plan to be the best cheerleader (sans pompoms, I won’t go that far) I can be until it’s time to get back out on that court. Hopefully, a few physio appointments and some rest will do the trick and I am back in no time!
For now, it’s time to let the healing powers of the body do their job and focus on the books as I am back at it for a long week of lectures. I hope everyone is staying warm back home as I hear the temperatures are going subzero again!
