25 Days T Go: Say what, Doc?
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” -Robert Frost
Short and sweet update: I saw a physical therapist this morning and he identified some alignment issues, a bit of scoliosis in my lower back and a potential stress injury in my right leg. He seems to think that most of my left hip, backside and leg issues are related to my lower back. I was able to get a same-day appointment at Impact Sports Nashville to get an x-ray. (Note: I bribed them with cookies and had just enough time to make a batch and bring them with me.) There is no visible fracture, but there is a bump on the tibia, which may or may not be the start of something.
I’ll be having an MRI here in the next few days to get a definitive answer. I feel pretty strongly that the result of the MRI will be nothing more than a confirmation that there is nothing big-time wrong with my leg and that I will still be able to participate in the Santa Rosa Tri. Until then it’s alignment exercises, biking, swimming and no running.
Today’s date is a good reminder that little things like this crop up here and there in life and are so tiny in comparison with the bigger tragedies and true losses others experience.
