The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So I pulled a muscle really bad in a mini a few weeks ago. 3 and 1/2 weeks now. it still has not healed. what I have learned from this and another injury I had is as soon as I feel like something is wrong I should stop. weather in the middle of a tournament or not.
It really sucks not being able to play though. I've gone out a few times and tried to throw a hole or two and it just not healed yet and I feel like if I would have stopped when I knew I injured myself I would have healed a lot quicker, or at least not hurt myself so much.
Pride and Ego are a Bi&*h though!! each time this has happened I felt like I had to keep playing, and even got some comments from other golfers about why I was holding my arm and acting like a puss. So I was all like.. well I'll show you!! I'm no quitter dammit!!
well screw that. I wont let anyone else influence me that way anymore.

the injury stays with me much longer than words from other golfers :)

at least I think I've learned enough about stretching and the importance of it now though and maybe I can keep the injuries to a minimum in the future.
hoping to be ready for one of the June Dallas area tournaments so laying low a bit more to keep healing the arm.

but damn I miss getting out there and throwing some D's on it!!

Eric- hope you get fully recovered soon!!! I'll do my best to learn from you and give it the time to heal... and to quit when it starts hurting! I'm hoping to play a tourney here May 10, but we'll see how the shoulder is doing. I'm REALLY hoping to be healthy for the Minnesota Majestic, a NT event out here the very last weekend in May. We will see though. I can put myself out a lot longer if I play injured!
