Actually, it takes a lot more ibuprofen than a whole bottle to kill someone </nerd>

OP, that sucks, but at least it wasn't any worse. Trees (on the other hand), are very likely to kill when approached the wrong way. Nasty creatures. But yeah, take good care of that leg! And avoid them trees in the future

Glad it wasn't worse.

And watch out for the trees that DO move and sound like John Rhys-Davies.

I am going to blame the OP for his own injury. The only reason you got hurt by that tree is because you haven't been training properly!

This is how a properly trained athlete deals with a tree....

Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."

Get it checked out. Quite a few years back I stuck my foot in a hole during an MX race, didn't think much of it even though it hurt all week. The following week I went down in a mud race and the tibia blew up which also broke the fibula. At the hospital they said I must have actually had a spiral break the week before because it xray showed signs of the bone healing. Pain is a warning sign, don't ignore it.

Lesson learned for everyone: breaks hurt less than you think they should (although in Kevin Ware's case it probably hurt about as much as it looked like it did).

Never trust anyone who says you'd be in excruciating pain if it was a break. The last time someone said that to me, my elbow was broken. The second to last time someone said that to me, my wrist was broken. Both times, I continued to snowboard for several hours after the injuries.

Lol!

Here I was thinking squats were suffice.

Well, it will be 4 weeks tomorrow, and I'm walking in pretty much full swing now. Still got some pains lingering in the muscles when I apply certain stresses but the doc said that'd be a part of the rehab process.

Going for xrays in a couple weeks to deal double check the fracture.

All in all, it has been quite the experience. Found that Epsom eucalyptus bathes helped relax the muscles and eating at least 2 bananas a day helped ease the muscle cramps.

Sad that the season is over, but the sun is out! Was nice to pull my summer mountain slayer out the closet today

Yesterday I couldnt make a turn tight enough while riding some really heavy snow and I actually cut in half/exploded a 2 inch thick aspen that was thankfully dead and rotten. It was terrifying and empowering at the same time. Snowboards have edges all the was around for a reason. Keep them sharp!!
