I kept having this back pain appear and at first, I thought nothing of it – I did not want to be weak – so I kept going. That is the athletes’ mindset, right? An injury makes you weak, not being able to handle the training thrown at you. There is not one athlete who wants to be the one sitting on the side because they physically cannot take what the rest of the team is doing.
