It's going to be Thursday before I can get back to training. There's a long work week in store for me. It's probably not a bad thing anyway. I've been nursing a sore rib for a couple of weeks now, so the time off is good. I can totally relate to Josh's situation. I've been down that injury road before and have had surgery to reattach a tendon. My current injury is pretty minor at this point, but it's still frustrating. I've had this injury a couple of times before over the course of my Jiu-Jitsu career, and although it's a pain in my side, we're old friends.
It's so difficult to completely back off from training. I keep pushing it as far as I think I can, hoping I won't aggravate it any more than it already is. The problem is that in doing that, I'm pretty sure I'm simply prolonging the healing process.
So, I'm pretty certain the smart choice would be to stop messing around and just let it heal, but I can't really bring myself to do that right now. Such is life and the choices we make.
