If it is, I'm probably fatally wounded.

Here's what I have to say to that.     I know alcohol certainly helps ease the pain for any physical issues.       Sent from carrier pigeon using MyGolfSpy

Be glad you are not older.  Stuff hurts all the time.  ..........

Ain't that the truth.  I think there is a never ending glob of pain in my body that migrates from one place to the next just to keep it interesting.  Right now its in my L4, L5 area of the lower back and i am laying flat with my feet up on a chair typing this hoping I don't have to sneeze all day.  Before that it was my left elbow for about a week, before that my neck, before that my left foot, right wrist, etc, etc, etc......  🙄  Half the time it is self inflicted from overdoing it or doing something stupid but the other half it is of a mysterious origin.

I think I had a one week stretch of being pain free back in early May of 2019.  😁

Wise decision.  Probably going to rain anyway.  Rest up and come back healthy.

Had an injury setback yesterday. No, I wasn't trying to swing or do anything stupid. I sneezed and that definitely aggravated the injury...

Sounds like a lot of us are falling apart lately. I sprained my big toe on my right foot somehow last Sunday during my water leak in the house. Swelling took three days to go down. Can't swing the club just yet. Can't pivot on that foot.  What makes it worse is I have a new club being delivered tomorrow.

Its like getting a car a week before you have a license. Ooooh the agony!

Just wait until you get older and that sneeze causes involuntary loss of fluid elsewhere. 😄 😄

I’m about recovered from my latest injury, at least about as much as I ever will be. Last September, I tore the meniscus and ACL in my right knee. Doctor fixed the meniscus but said the ACL surgery takes 20 yo athletes a full year to recover from and being 56 yo and non athlete (he was being kind) the best I could hope for was a 40% recovery in about 2 years. BUT through PT and strengthening he thought I could achieve that without surgery in about 6 months.
PT was completed a couple of what weeks ago. I’ve played 5 full rounds of golf, and a number of practice holes. Started out with 3 holes and worked my way up to a full 18. Shot 99–97-95-89-87 so that’s trending in the right direction.
The biggest issue aside from walking on uneven ground is I having to change my swing again. Finding something that doesn’t twist my trail knee has been a journey.
By flaring both my feet towards the target and moving my trail (right) foot back I can get good shoulder and hip turn with very little twisting of my knee and just flex and extend my legs creating a twisting upper body. I’ve lost about 50 yards, but part of that is simply fear. I moved up some tees and enjoyed be ABLE to play.
No play this weekend, but last weekend towards the end of the round I really smoked a couple of drives. Irons have been horrible but think I figured that out.

I crashed on my bike Saturday. Lost the front wheel in a disguised patch of gravel on a downhill turn. I have a lot of road rash on my left side, though none of it super bad, but the wrenching my body took has my upper back and neck sore and stiff. Fortunately no concussion, but I'm having tension headaches from my stiff neck. I'm supposed to race this coming Saturday. That's still possible, but I'll probably opt out. Ironically I think golf would be harder now than riding, partly due to my back, and part to scrapes on my knuckles.

Never really mentioned it on here through all of my play and workout posts, but since last October I've been fighting plantar fasciitis in both my feet.  I almost always walk but my feet would be throbbing by 12, and after workouts, to the point that I was icing my feet in a tub of ice water twice a day all winter and invested in a massage gun as well.  I got it under control to the point that I walked my first round relatively comfortably this year, and I finally have custom orthotics on the way...one pair for my combat boots, one for workout/golf shoes.  Can't wait to put it completely behind me...what a nagging pain-in-the-arse injury that is.

That sucks. I had planter fasciitis in both feet in my late 20's. I'd wake up in the morning and would have to sometimes crawl to the bathroom and walk on the outsides of my feet for 30 min to an hr. Only thing that fixed it was a cortisone shot in both feet. Mt feet still get sore but I can walk all I want, I just need to stop and sit for a few minutes every so often.

Plantar fasciitis is one of the injuries I’ve had/have. Like you I did the custom orthotics (2 sets) in mid 80’s and has mostly solved the problem since then.
I would get a flare up occasionally but nothing debilitating. As I’ve gotten older and not on my feet as much, especially factory concrete floors the problem has subsided.
I still wear the orthotics and swear by them.

Thanks.  Mine arrived last Friday.  I've worn them to work in my combat boots a couple times and they're definitely going to help.  I've also got them in my workout shoes.

Only problem/setback was Saturday...I walked 18, and I went to put them in my Spieth 2 shoes, which are already kind of narrow and snug, and the orthotic made the shoe too narrow and snug.  Haven't tried them in my HOVR's, but I suppose if I wear orthotics all week it won't be the end of the world to not have them for golf, right?
