There is also being open to nutrition, and recovery time to promote improvement. And having to do the work, not having the hot pack/ultrasound/massage approach to rehab, hoping to feel better and that tissue will recover to allow the necessary passive/active/resisted activities necessary.

Would love to be a fly on the walls of those rehab gyms!

She broke her foot in September so it seems like a long time for the injury to still be bothering her. Even if she was still in pain, I’d imagine she could use crutches to get to her seat and not present an award. Maybe she’s just tired of awards season …
