I got my first real slalom lesson from Doug at The Liquid Edge last September. I started working on improving my form (leading with hips, not shoulders, etc), so hopefully I can use this injury and recovery to help continue my form improvements. Gotta look at the bright side, haha.
Its definately up and down right now. One hour I can pretty well walk on it, and the next hour I can't sit still because i can't get comfortable. I am definately glad to be actually starting my recovery though.
