I don’t want to get too ahead of myself but holy crap am I excited.
You see, 5 months ago I messed up my ankle. I didn’t blog about it because it was only meant to keep me out for a couple of weeks. Things got complicated and as life rolled on my ankle didn’t make the progress it should have. The disappointment kept on growing, and I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t cut my hair until I could play hockey again.
I am proud to say that I completed around 55/70 minutes in a friendly match on Saturday and while my ankle has been stiff and a bit sore, I safely think that I can slowly get back into the game and I am FLIPPING STOKED!
I have been doing some gentle straight line jogging for the last two weeks doing 2-3km’s almost daily and that has helped immensely, but getting back into playing is the real challenge.
I was also quite pleased with my level of determination to stick with working hard on my exercises and running consistently, but more importantly with the discipline I had with keeping my hair. It helped keep me focused and fixed on my goal of getting back.
Now I just need to decide what I am going to do with my hair…
