Not to go into too much detail, but my senior year in HS was taken from me with my knee injury. It took me months to learn how to contract my leg muscles, I was pissing in a bottle, having my mom wash me, and told I wouldnt come back.
To compete again was more important to me than anyone may ever know. I proved to myself that this injury couldn't hold me back, and lifting really saved me from some mental things I had going on from my injury.
Im really happy in the place Im at right now, so I'm gonna enjoy it for a few days maybe even a week, and then get back to hittin it hard again.
