How it all happened

January 20th.

Good ol' Soccer. Jogging backwards pretty freely/comfortably and as I went to lunge forward to jump in to a play, my Achilles gave out -- I knew it instantly. At first it felt as if I might have been kicked/tripped, but turns out no one was around. From that point I was helped to the bench and I began to browse online via my phone to look for the standard field tests -- and I failed the Thompson test. Ended up in the ER an hour later, home with a splint a couple hours after that with an appt. to see the Ortho the following day.
