I can't decide whether to let my hip heal or go to karate tomorrow. Maybe I can kinesiotape my hands and work on my crutches. Decisions, decisions.
When I miss karate I really *miss* karate. To miss karate because of pain or dislocated joints sends me into a tailspin. On one hand I hear my PT begging me to rest. On the other hand I am terrified of muscle atrophy. The muscle spams are already intolerable. The uncontrollable cry of pain is the embarrassment, not the pain itself. The pain itself just sucks.
The correct answer is just to go and to try my best.
