I went to the trainers yesterday and they put me on the bike for 15 minutes. Then I got ultrasound and then biked some more and finally stim and ice. Stim is where they hook up electrodes above and below the point that hurts and it sends pulses through it to break up the inflammation. It feels really cool!
So I even went back a second time to the trainers in the afternoon for more treatment! The only bad part was that last night I was in a little bit of pain.
I talked to my coach - I am going to the meet Sunday and competing in Pentathlon and we will see how it goes. He said that Pent is my main concern right now and that I have to at least give it a try because this is the state meet and I could do really well even with my leg hurting. I seriously love his attitude although I am nervous about hurting myself even more. Right now I am listed in 4th place out of a total of 7 people; apparently there will be a few more girls added in.
So that is the news - I am happy but nervous. Its hard for me because this is my first real injury - I was so lucky to get through 4 years of basketball without any injuries.
So I am done with the negative and only thinking positive! I hope everyone has a fabulous Friday and enjoys the weekend!
