Knees have been giving me some issues.
I will be taking a few days off from personal throwing to let them rest as much outside of baseball as possible.
According to my dad, I do too much, which is true. As a former trainer and my dad, he knows exactly what I need. Rest. And until I get more of it, my knees won't feel better.
Been seeing the trainer and getting treatment and that has helped to an extent. But I think a few days off from doing any activity will be the best thing for me. As a pitcher who is not going to have a heavy load of innings this spring, I want to be healthy for summer and to be healthy so I can do my personal throwing, so that I can improve my mechanics and arm strength.
It's so hard to take time off. It may sound cliche say, but I'm a obsessively hard working and is why my only injuries I ever get are overuse injuries.
On a positive note, my arm feels great, my mechanics have been looking good when my knee has been feeling good. And when I got stretched out yesterday, the trainer was impressed by my flexibility. Said I could do a split. Which I'm actually working on trying to do, just to see if I can. A front one, I'll never be able to do a side one.
If I take a few days off from baseball, I think I will still throw, but just on my knee, so I can still work on something, without stressing out my legs.
Long season, and I don't want to miss is because of stress related injury.
