I haven’t talked about it yet, but I had a very rough Saturday. I’m taking this knee problem very hard. I thought I was heading toward recovery having been rolling out consistently, lacrosse ball and mobility stretches and hot/cold compressions. I even did a WOD RX on Friday and felt okay afterwards. Not much more additional pain. And I rolled out a ton after.
Come Saturday, the day I am to do WOD 12.3. The box jumps are what worried me. There were box jumps in Fridays WOD but I took my time with them.
Rolled out and stretched per usual before beginning. I was even so proud because I can finally string together Toes to Bar.
3,2,1, go! Knocked one round out with not much problem, then beginning of second round of box jumps just shot pain into my knee. I finished them and moved onto push presses but the hip thrusting was hitting my knee and it was getting worse and worse. I knew I had to stop. I had to listen to my body. So I did.
Felt like complete shit for stopping. Angry, frustrated and sad all rolled into one. The timing for this injury couldn’t be at the worst time – during the Open.
