sadly i must sit the whole summer out!!!!! :-(
« on: June 01, 2008, 02:55:44 PM »
so sadly guys im gonna have to sit the rest of the summer out, or well at least till august according to the doctor.  :( The other day i was working on my standing fulls and after 3 perfect landings, I did not jump up enough on my take off and landed left foot flat, and right foot toes down into the grass. After much cussing, I realized that going toes down, bent my toes under and snapped 3 bones in my foot. I go in for surgery on it tomorrow, and he says it will be a 6 - 8 week healing process. I will still be around to help train and what not, but im going to be sitting on the sidelines all summer. I hope for a quick recovery, and safe training to all of you.

haha I cant even do pushups. ive got 3 shattered bones in my foot and i cant put any pressure on my foot at all. upper body and healthy eating and alot of running around on crutches lol. ill still be around to attend the chatanooga jam to help teach techniques and what not just no training myself  :-[   im just pissed that right when i finally thought i had mastered the standing full, this goes and happens and shows that nobody is perfect. train hard, train smart, train safe.

Yeh, that really sucks have you tried pushups with your shattered foot behind your other foot? I don't know how severe it is or how bad it hurts but just a suggestion. Injuries i think is a part of understanding your body

, use this time to rethink how your going to come back with a stronger mindset and a stronger desire, use this injury to provide knowledge to the people who need it. Once again best of luck ;)

thank you for the kind words. as of today pushups are a no go. I have the crutches set so low that i have to use straight forearm strength to keep moving so that will help in the long run. I tried getting in the pool and i could feel my bones moving around haha so i think i need to sit out all physical activies for at least a week and just keep to pull ups, free weights, and muscle ups. And yes I will try my hardest to use this injury to help newcomers about the necesity of repetion and smart training. I will still be out at all the jams helping teach kids and show the consequences of movements when your mind is not in the right place. I will use this time to train my mind more than anything and I will come back even stronger than when I left. Thank you again for the support.

Hey this is David from The Hara5aki Free running team. I'm one of the few who's in charge of the Jam here in Chattanooga. Here's the scoop. Our team found another team here in Chattanooga. We are getting the team's together, and mapping spots out. Though it maybe a while before we get all the spots completed. So for now, no jam until otherwise changed. But we will have a Jam soon hopefully.

You could maybe work on muscle-ups if you're really careful about your landing.
Always open to training invites if you're in the Germantown/Collierville area, just message me on any of my contacts, email preferably.
