This week has been interesting to say the least. Last week I did something to my knee. I'm not sure what, but it feels like it could buckle when I jump on it. So out of a possible 10 hours of on the boards diving that I had scheduled, I dove for 2 hours and 40 minutes. So sad!!
I worked out a couple of times, and that was good, but ultimately, I'm competing on the boards, not in sit ups or push ups.
My first competition is in six days! I'm terrified on two levels now. One, cause I want to do well. But secondly, I'm terrified I won't even be able to compete if my knee doesn't get better. The hard part about it is that I can walk about just fine. I can do just about everything just fine and it feels okay. But as soon as I try to put all my weight on one foot and jump off it several times in a row, that's when I run into problems.
I have practice tomorrow morning at 8 am. I'm going to go and hope it's not a waste for Coach Jose. He comes all the way from Anaheim to Torrance to train me and since I'm the only one on dive team, if I don't make it, then that's it.
Hopefully this week will go well. Hopefully I can dive. Hopefully my knee will hold up. I include it in my prayers every night. If you're reading this, please do the same!
Oh, and in case you're wonder, I felt love and ate candy all day. It was awesome and terrible all at the same time. I think it's extremely difficult to not eat tons of candy on Halloween and Valentine's Day.
Six days to competition. I'll keep you posted.
