Just two weeks ago you were skating off that frozen sheet one last time. Now you’re crouched over trying to tie your shoe with one foot on a half-pulled-out gym bleacher.
Your hip-flexors feel impinged, glutes over-stretched and your achilles tendon closely resembles a steel cable. Your lacrosse coach was wishing you luck (wink) as your fellow lacrosse captains ramped-up skills camp while you were leading your team deep into the playoffs. Your club soccer coach wanted to know if you would be ready for the Phoenix showcase in two weeks and your classmates can’t wait to join you on spring break in-between. This is the world we live in. One able body with increased external demands and expectations accompanied by an unrelenting internal drive to fulfill them.
