Sooo I have begun my Active Release therapy for my legs. There is really no way to describe this type of physio. By the time I am done my 30 minute session, I am soaking wet in sweat, have a massive headache and am so tense I almost feel like going home to bed. Not to mention the pain that follows you around all day. I keep reminding myself that this is all needed to get better. I do NOT want surgery.
On top of my two tears, my doc says I have abnormally tight hamstrings which is no doubt causing my hip, groin, back and leg problems that have plagued me over the past 3 years. But she says that in time, I can make great gains in correcting the issues. But of course, it comes at a cost. Lots more physio and strangely enough... a lot of yoga.
Yoga...I have done it a few times but never really considered going more than occassionally. Looks like I am going to have to wrap my head around this if I want to continue playing my sports at the levels I am accustomed to.
So overall, I am in good spirits. I really can't complain too much. Pain will eventually go away and in the end I will be at a better level than what I started at. That is the goal after all.
Leaving for holidays in a few weeks. Can't wait. To swim in the warm waters of Italy and Greece will at least calm my mind if not these sore legs. Now if only I can get my passport back from Passport Canada. Bastards are taking forever. The countdown has begun.
