Hi everyone. My name is penpal, and I'm an injureholic.
It's been zero days since my last injury - stomach muscle strain.
I'm 42 and have been playing since about 31. Have torn both calf muscles, bruised my ribs (got my foot caught in the netting and went down hard on my chest), sprained an ankle, hurt my lower back, received cortisone shots in my shoulder and both feet, and miscellaneous others.
My wife calls me China Doll
But the good news is that most of the really serious stuff happened early on. I think there really is an adjustment period when your body is getting used to the new things you are asking it to do.
