Update on the leg...

Ive had a lot of people asking me about the leg. I dont know what i did to it. I just know it felt fine going into the last 804 squat at the meet, then it popped twice along the outer right thigh just below the hip. There was no bruising, no total detachment, so cant be that bad; but it sure did hurt.

Its been two week now and im walking up and down stairs pretty good. Still sore and the swelling is moving down from the thigh and into the knee causing some discomfort there. I may have some nerve impingement, at least what some people have suggested, because i have a superficial numbness to the touch (touch to the skin is numb) but sharp pains in the quad with pressure. Top of knee cap and insertion sore today, maybe from doing bent over rows last night? ill just watch it and see.

All in all it seems to be doing well and recovering much faster than last years injury. I hope to be progressing back in by the end of the month.

Hoping to be able to compete again in October or thereabouts to take another shot at 804. Will be killing my DL between now and then.
