The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

alright, not really a "pro tip" since I am not a Pro :)
"pro tip" has become more of an internet meme than anything. and there is no # 1-6. I just wanted to start with # 7 :)

anyway. the Tip is... Stop playing when you feel like you've hurt something!! apparently continuing to play and hope it gets better only makes it worse?! go figure!! haha.
I did something to my elbow several months ago and kinda brushed it off as maybe a sprain or something and kept playing as often as I normally do. but man.. it really hurt almost every time I threw so I slowed down to only playing on weekends but it wasn't getting any better, it was getting more and more painful :(

I've missed a few tournaments I wanted to enter this year and it's really bummed me out since disc golf is really my only exercise and one of the funnest things I can think of to do.
so It's been a month and a half now and Ive walked my local park a few times throwing sidearm since that doesn't seem to hurt it at all. and I can tell it's almost all the way healed, but I am afraid to throw RHBH and accidentally hurt it again and make the healing process stretch out longer. it feels like its still a bit bruised when I poke around my elbow so I have no idea what I did or why it hurt so much.
I've broken my left elbow so I know what that feels like, and this isn't the same kind of pain.
I wish I coulda seen a doctor but being unemployed kinda hinders that. had to fight thru the flu with over the counter meds recently also. the horror!!! haha.

anyways... I was driving somewhere this afternoon and I noticed the city put in the poles for the baskets at a new course right behind my house . I am so excited!!! but it's kinda funny.
I found out I'll be moving to another area in a month or 2 so I'll only have this new course that is sssooooo close to play on for that long.

for anyone that never has..... having a course within walking distance is the BEST!!!
not that I should gripe. I'll be within 10 minutes from Cedar Hills and The Vet at my new location, but still.

hopefully I'll be able to go out and throw without pain later this week.

so take it easy when you think you've injured yourself. by continuing to play I think I only made my healing time longer.
