After a year of rehab, I finally found out last week that the shoulder injury I’ve been dealing with isn’t really an injury. That is, it’s not something that can be fixed, with surgery or without, but is simply “worn out”.
That being said, my physio (and my chiro) both agree that by staying the course with the exercises I’m doing, I’ll be able to keep doing most of the things I love to do. Here’s the deal though. I’m not writing this so much to share that I’ve been injured this past year. What I’m writing this for is to share that while going through this period of uncertainty; this period of sometimes severe limitation; I managed to handcycle some 2,500 km’s last Summer.
Despite a pretty hectic travel schedule so far this year, I’ve ski’d maybe ten days, plus or minus…
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not writing this to say “Look at me go!”.
I’m writing this to say “Look how far you could go”…
Sometimes we get bogged down; we get stuck when something is taken away from us, or circumstances change.
My question for you is: What might it look like if you did what you could, with what you’ve got?
I found a way to manage and work within a limitation.
Maybe you could do the same.
