After knee surgery, 2 months on crutches and 6 months in recovery away from both running and Crossfit I was finally cleared on December 29th. It took me a few weeks to actually get into the box though, I had been gone so long, gained weight, lost muscle and it was a new box so I had a lot to think about. In the end I realized that there was a point I wasn't sure I would ever be able to go back to the things I loved so I needed to go back because I could. I joined my original coach Neil's new box and started Thursday, it was hard, there were tears, but I did it and went back Friday. I am deadlifting at half of what I used to, I cannot do pull ups, my push ups have to be off and elevated bar and I am sure I will find many more issues, but in time I will get better and stronger and hopefully surpass the athlete I once was.
