When Fridays come around everyone is looking forward to some time off and a weekend away from things. This was the opposite for me this weekend, I’ve been looking forward to Monday for a long time now. This coming Monday will be my first time back on the mound throwing bullpens since surgery back in October. This weekend couldn’t have gone any slower than it has I’ve been watching tv, movies and playing xbox the time still seems to not move forward.
Just settling in to watch the Colts take on the 49ers here in Tucson. I’ve had a pretty busy weekend so far, a day to relax and watch football will be nice! I’m pretty pumped that I finally get to watch the Colts on a regional broadcast.
There has been some questions posted by readers that were wondering about the injury before the actual injury. The season for me was going great in 2009, couldnt have asked to be any healthier. Like every pitcher we have our ups and downs both physically and mentally. Not really sure if at any point in the season that a baseball player can say he is 100% healthy, but on July 30th while warming up in the bullpen I could feel I wasnt my normal self. At first, I thought it was something that would go away and I would loosen up after about 15 throws, but not this day. I proceeded to have my worst start of the year, not saying it was from my elbow but I was frustrated with my performance. Following my outing I went into the trainers room and said that something didn’t feel right, and by right I meant not what I usually feel following an outing. The most crazy thing about my injury was that the outing that I suffered my injury was the hardest I had thrown the entire season. My FB averages were up and my FB peak was also the highest of the season.
Tomorrow begins my first day of rehab at the Dbacks complex with our rehab guys. I’ve been doing some icing and flexibility stuff while sitting on couch and watching football the past few days. This has been tough for me to do, I’m usually a person that is on the go and doesn’t like to be lazy. I will blog next week more about the week in rehab and what I did and how my progression is.
Frank Gore just broke a huge run on our defense!! Thats a sign for me to settle in and start cheering on the Colts.
