Injured Derby

Ask   This blog is currently a myriad of me dealing with my rehab of an ACL reconstruction (thanks to roller derby) while still loving the sport of derby... Mostly me trying to keep (and maybe find) my identity in the process of all this...

If your core dosesn’t improve after doing this workout say 3 times a week, then your doing it wrong. This looks painful but worth it

The Bitch is Back

It’s been a minute, but I would just like to quickly update and say that I’ve gotten all my required full participation practices in to be active again. 😊
I’ve even faced my beast and played in on queen of the rink… And lasted until the last 2. I’ve lasted until the final few every time, actually. I can still do this.
There are a few things that are wobbly, but it’ll come with time.

It starts kind of…
