This is just the injuries that I can easily remember. Lots of random limpin, gimping, icing, ibuprofen, and down time in between. My shit's broken down right now, and it's been a mess for over a year. Glass da da da di da...Glass Joe strikes again. It makes it tough to stretch the hammys. I need to get back on the yoga program. Yoga is good.
