Welcome Back Isis!
Isis keeps a blog called “The Secrets of Isis” where masters swimming ranks high among her many varied interests. Now swimming is known for being a sport with minimal injury risk, but when we do have serious problems it generally involves the shoulder. Unfortunately 2007 saw Isis’s shoulder go under the knife twice trying to correct a chronic injury, initially restricting her to endless kicking sets but eventually forcing her out of the pool altogether. Now she’s back in and needs some cheering to complete her recovery! If you are curious about what rehabilitation from a shoulder injury entails for a swimmer this is a great blog to encourage you to correct those technique problems now or give your shoulder a rest; with neat surgical pictures and some graphic descriptions of the complications which arise from post-operative infection. A well written blog: one which you will find especially appealing if your interests also include literature and/or a fondness for knitting.
