      In the beginning of 2013, I tore my achilles tendon and had surgery to repair.  After 12 weeks of serial casting I began PT and the long journey back to “prior level of function”.  4 weeks into PT I partially tore again and had to go back into a cast.  I have 2 weeks left in this thing and I am trying to draw all sources of information/motivation.  

      I read some stuff out there about the pre-injury and preventative steps, but not really anything about the recovery (successful PLOF stories anyway) and that freaks me out.  =/
      So, I’m sitting all day in front of the computer, reading Supple leopard, Just watched the “Jenny LaBaw, Broken Foot, and Return to Sport” episode trying to plan a smart way to “reclaim my mobility” and hopefully physicality.   Wondering if anyone has a “been there, done that – i’m still awesome” experience to share and how they got back to the action?  

      -this site is awesome btw)

      Take it each step at a time. It is a process coming back from an injury. Use the time to build a solid foundation to build off of. Use time for skill work and getting things dialed.

      THANKS Kaitlin! 

      It feels good to have an idea what my next plan of action is after I get on 2 feet again!  The template is great!
