    so I'm driving along in the left lane on the highway when this chick driving the other way hits the median (which is basically a grass hill like 8 ft tall) and as she lands she hits me head on.

    Long story short, I broke both bones in my lower leg (tib & fib) and my left foot. Other injuries but thats the main stuff. Ridiculous part is that the broken leg I could walk on from day 3 (except it hurt like hell) cuz they put a titanium rod in it, but I can't walk on the foot for another 6 weeks.

    Needless to say my training has gone to shit, but I try and work in some upper body stuff at home. Anyway it just sucks the big one and I thought I would share.

    For all of you who are frustrated that you aren't lifting more weight, at least you can lift weight - I can't wait to get back to the gym.

    holy shit, glad to hear you made it out semi-ok. Heal up fast and get back at it, I'm sure you'll be way more motivated than most of us once you're cleared to train again :hs:

    I'm very glad you're alive and well enough.

    Take it easy. A friend broke both femurs and a tibia in a motorcycle accident (as well as a slew of other injuries including broken ribs and shit). He has rods all through the bones in his legs but has to really take it easy.

    Needless to say he stopped riding motorcycles in the fucking rain after that.

    :hug:
