The Joys of Taekwondo...

As I mentioned in the last post Taekwondo is take over my life.

At the moment I'm supposed to be preparing for Australian University Games, but at training last week I landed a jumping roundhouse wrong and my knee gave out from underneath me. Its probably one of the most terrifying feelings I've ever felt. Thankfully none of the major ligaments appear to be broken. I'm 90% sure that it's a sprain, seriously I didn't even know you could sprain your knees, probably because the only knee injuries that I've ever heard of are ruptured ACL or PCL.  

Competition is in just under a month. Hopefully I'm able to be back at training (lightly) within the next week I'll feel better about life in general, not training is driving me crazy. But I'm not going to push it too hard, and give it the space it needs to heal. If I have to pull out of AUG I will, even though I may not get another chance to compete at them, a knee injury that heals bad or is made worse, would be far worse than the FOMO I'll feel for not going.

Here's to hoping!
