Serious Athletes BEWARE!

In the March issue of Men’s Health Magazine, I came across this interesting statistic of injuries for every 1,000 hours of training. This is something to be aware of. The stats don’t lie. SOMEONE is going to get hurt – it’s inevitable… Of course the exponential mindset is SOMEONE will get hurt – hopefully SOMEONE ELSE!

A famous joke illustrates this philosophy:

Two guys are in the forest and come across a bear. One of them says “#$#%$ we have to out-run the bear!” The other, with an exponential mindset says “No, I just have to out-run you!”

I’ve done a little math for you. 1,000 hours is more or less 1 hour, 3 times a week = every 6 years.

How often do you play your sport?

I post this not to scare you, just as something to keep in mind.

Play well, play safe!
