And, I’m SO HAPPY to be shirtless!
The good news? For the first time since I broke my ankle 6 months ago, it wasn’t my ankle that made me stop. It was muscle fatigue. Yeah, my ankle was hurting, and yeah the reason I had such severe muscle fatigue is because I was completely run down from that event, coming down with a cold, and getting dehydrated. But still, my ankle is getting stronger. Much stronger.
Now, instead of fighting ankle pain, I can start rebuilding my endurance. I can start pushing myself again. Looking at the rally above, compared to a rally that Flying Clipper Headquarters dug up from St. Patty’s day 2 years ago, boy… have I got a long way to go. Maybe I’ll never be able to do torques again. But maybe, just maybe, I will.
In the meantime, I am adjusting to the “New Normal” of having a Hack Circle every session. Lance is the instigator, and he gets a few people out there almost every day. And once there’s a circle, more people join. I have just entered the realm of being the grandfather of a new Hacky Sack group on campus. This is so cool. I’m teaching them some moves, and just being there for them with my footbags.
Thanks for tuning in!
