I feel your frustration with the minor injuries getting in the way. It sucks. But hopefully you are in tip top condition for Saturday!

Well. I stared today. Played for 10 minutes before coach pulled me. Then I got a stern talking to about letting her know BEFORE the game if I can't run. I didn't know. I'd been resting it, but I wanted to try. At least she still has enough faith in me to start. That's nice.

Anyhow, it's already being iced. (quad again...I called my masseuse and I'm hoping he can fix me). I'm about to go lay down and watch movies and be depressed.

At any rate, I'll be back in the gym tomorrow. Even if it's just upper body. I'm sick of not lifting. I'll try legs, but we'll see how it goes.

I dropped down to 185 lbs as of yesterday (which is much leaner than my 192 was, so that rules). I'd like to add another few muscle pounds (without adding the fat pounds. we'll see how it goes). Time to get bigger and stronger. I'm looking a lot like a soccer player these days, not a rugby player.

The saga continues. I'm currently sitting in the hospital waiting for an x-ray. I thought, and the doctor also thinks I have a stress fracture in my left foot. Super awesome!!! And my former coach/masseuse said he thinks I tore my quad.

I asked the doc about that, too. We'll see what happens.

Not so psyched on life right now.

Don't get too down about it. I know that's easier said than done. Right now the important thing is to let yourself recover!

Aw man. I'm sorry. I know how bad a broken or injured foot sucks. I am so sorry.

Think of it this way though... now is an opportunity to switch up your training. Maybe focus on upper body power. No more running around... that means it's time to lay on some serious size where it counts. You can work this Jason.

Hope this post isn't too annoying. But I do have a feeling that you're one of those kind of guys that turns adversity into opportunity.

Hoping you don't have a stress fracture....had one twice in my right foot. Needles to say it sucked bad.....twice.
If you do, try not to let it get you down. Just listen to the docs about resting it! I didn't and it broke again......not fun. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you don't have to deal with that. Take care.

Well, thank you all SO much for kind words. Turns out its not broken (big plus) and I need to rest it. I'm giving myself until the 7th until I do anything on lower body. Just ice and rest.

Viva, you're right. Upper body it is. It'll all be ok.

I need the rest anyow. Come back stronger later.

Big update! I was able to run at practice last night! I'm not 100%, but I'm good enough to play. My quad feels great. My foot still hurts, but it's workable. I'll be back to full duty soon, I hope. I'm excited and hopeful. I'll be back commenting on other peoples logs soon too. My semester is almost over!!! Yay free time!

I'm really glad you're doing better! But be VERY careful about returning to rugby with a sore foot...the last thing you want to do is come back too soon and re-injure yourself. I'd say it's better to take an extra few days off than to risk re-injuring yourself and causing multiple weeks more of frustration.

I'd be careful with that foot as well. I had a friend with similar symptoms and he ended up with a Jones fracture, which takes a ridiculously long time to heal.

I'll echo what xCx and medman said. But congratulations!

Yeah Jones fractures do take a ridiculously long time to heal. I'll vouch for that.
