On Schedule

It still surprises me how fast time can fly by. It seems like weeks ago since Bigg’s bicep tendon repair and the beginning of rehab and it’s already been a little over three months. I’ve been very proud of him and his hard work on this rehab, he’s working a little harder but taking far better care of himself overall than his first repair. He’s stronger than ever and on track to begin event training in preparation for Lapland and the Champions League Iceman Lapland event in March.

The Iceman is one of Bigg’s favorite competitions. Really, how could it not be? There’s snow; it’s freezing out; the dude is right at home!  He and Oz even wore their Iceman Lapland snuggies to the New Year’s Day Polar Plunge!

He’s on the road for most of January so training can be a bit tricky. Therefore the 380 strict press he hit last night is cause for celebration around here. Cuz he’s still rehabbing…right on schedule.

The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.
