The human body is truly amazing but when you don't move something, perhaps your shoulder, for 6 weeks it effectively stops being able to do so. I never thought I would be so excited to be able to lift my arm above my head again. Over the years I have rehab'd two elbows (6 weeks and 2 weeks immobilized) and a neck (12 weeks in a brace) but I have to say this will definitely go down as the worst of the three. The six weeks in the sling went by surprisingly quickly. I got thoroughly reacquainted with my bike trainer as well as the elliptical trainer at the gym, and with the exception of a few low moments manage some pretty solid training. Nothing spectacular, but enough to maintain a pretty descent amount of base fitness. Also enjoyed some time out with friends including a wonderful Easter Sunday get together with the T-Town crew on the patio at the JW Marriott at Star Pass. If you are ever in the Tucson area this is definitely the place to enjoy the sunset and a great Margarita!!
