Overcoming my back injury

In my last post, I chronicled the back injury I endured last fall. I’ve slowly recovered from this injury, but it wasn’t without a lot of frustration, tears, work to get stronger and a complete fear of re-injury. I cautiously started back to boxing in January, a few rounds at a time while doing the [...]

The back injury that set me back

Note: I was going to write one post about my injury and my comeback, but it got long so I broke it up into two parts. Part two to come later this week.  I took a significant break from blogging throughout last summer and fall and haven’t really shared a lot about it. During the [...]
