Hi there my family, friends and fans!Hope you all had a great Xmas and tons of fun during New Years… I am here to try tokeep you all up to date at once, on what’shappening with me. Let’s start with theend of last year’s season…Right before the second to last tourney,I’m not sure, for those who follow me, if you’ve seen pictures or watched meplaying with tons of kinesio tape on myback as you can see in the picture above.3 days before that tourney we found out Ihad a herniated disk (L5S1), which is verycommon in my sport due to repetitiveimpact from jumping, turning and fallingin weird ways. My doctor said it washuge, but luckily it came out posteriorly
Quick look on what’s happening:
"Keep away from people who try tobelittle your ambitions. Small peoplealways do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, canbecome great. When you are seekingto bring big plans to fruition, it isimportant with whom you regularlyassociate. Hang out with friendswho are like-minded and who arealso designing purpose-filled lives. Similarly, be that kind of a friend for your friends."  Mark Twain

(towards the skin of my back) ratherthan laterally (towards the spinalcord). If that had happened Iprobably wouldn’t be able to walk hesaid.So I am very glad that I got this“lucky” and I will use that to myadvantage so I would not need tohave surgery.I had sessions of physical therapyand chiropractor with Reinaldo*,Pilates and did tons of core trainingso I could play the last tournament of the year. I felt great, with someuncomfortable feelings but waybetter than the last tournament.Which really is giving me hope that I will not need surgery.Besides my injury, my former partnerRenata, had another injury in herhitting shoulder. Somehow she couldnot lift it and of course hitting was very painful. Well we still manage tofinish 5
in both tournaments, which I was very thankful also, due to all thedifficulties we were facing. A couple of month before the end of the season Renata and I had decidedto split our team. We both believe

What if you have to start from 0? Would you?
That we can play even better with otherplayers. Also, I wanted to go back to splitblocking and getting to play defenseagain, which I love the most in this game.So gladly, and in great terms we finishedour partnership.We decided to still train in the sameTraining Center in Rio: VPB (Volei dePraia Brasil). This way we can still helpeach other and get to hang out everyday,after all she’s been my best friend sinceI’m 16 or 17 years old!
 We also have a new coach: Tie Santana**,he is a young but enlightened humanbeing. I am very excited to work with him.My new partner is Izabel Santos, and she isa little older than me, has been playing inthe Tour for quite some time and likes to doit all on the court like me. We haven’t beenable to practice together yet but I cannot wait! After the season was over I went to Los Angeles to spend my vacation. It was somuch fun! I also never really had a breakphysically. I had to work hard physically
