My Achilles Heel

So this is the year that I am going to be far more thoughtful about taking care of my body through the year.

Starting last season, I started noticing my feet and ankles were hurting the morning after games. I’d gimpily trudge to the shower, and typically it was gone by the time I made breakfast. This morning was a little different. The pain was more intense: a little sore. But more alarming, the pain localized around my Achilles tendons.

I visited the athletic trainer at the school where I worked. He gave me another layer of padding for the back of my shoe, and I spent today icing my ankles while I taught. It went just fine. But I am going to have to be very deliberate about icing and stretching. And now I am making myself commit to it here.

Goals for the season

are as follows:

–Secondary cadence outside my area: otherwise, leave it alone.
–Keep my cool and avoid tunnel vision.
–No rules slip-ups…ever. Be the Rules Guy.
–Get back in shape (and stay in it all summer next year). Be in position.
–Show leadership. I’m becoming one of the old guys in the association, and people are looking up to me.
–Don’t get inside my head when things go screwy.
