I felt a sharp pain this past Sat working out and it got worse throughout the day, especially during baseball practice. I iced and rested like crazy yesterday, but this morning it still didn't feel right.
I went to see the Ortho Dr this morning and got some bad news. I have a few tears in my left patellar tendon.
Good news is I don't need surgery. The tears are slight and with time will heal on their own.
It's like an old worn piece of rope that has a few threads come loose over time. Same with my tendon. Years of sports and being overweight has worn that tendon down.
I've got to lay off of crossfit for at least a week, and any heavy lifting for 4-6 weeks.
Frustrated but it's only a road block if I allow it to be. I'll rest it & recover, and big back in the box soon enough.
