day 2107 – swollen infection

when i look down at my ankle, it’s safe to say there’s something really wrong with it. i got myself into my chiropractor because i thought my ankle was locked, jammed or sprained of some sort, turns out i needed to go to hospital more. the size of my ankle is twice the size of my normal and there’s random bruising on my ankle bone not to mention it’s burning inside. he suggested there’s an infection and get it checked out as soon. me being me, i checked the emergency wait times and declined. i wasn’t going to spend six hours at the hospital, but booked in to see my family doctor tomorrow morning

day 1702 – kpc

late into the office because i had to go in for another regular physio checkup. what was suppose to be just stretching became rolling, and from rolling it became dynamic exercises. it seems i’m always doing exercise like i’m in circus school. as usual he went through my standard list of ankle, hip, back, neck, shoulder and thumb, and then more. i had no idea my knee cap was out of alignment, again. my knee cap has been stable in the recent months but clearly needed a little attention today. fun fact is i’ve been a part of my physio clinics existence for fourteen of the twenty years. 

day 725 – plans ruined

image

guess who’s not going and not capable of going to celebration of lights fireworks tonight. i sprained my ankle this morning but life and teaching must carry on without showing my pain to others. strapped on some tape and onwards with teaching, won’t know how black and blue it will be until it’s unwrapped. this ruins a lot set plans and puts a lot of my upcoming activities in jeopardy

day 247 – stocked up

image

safe to say i am stocked up and set for the next two months. sprained my ankle multiple times this week and almost sprained it again today but tape saved my life from making further damage. can’t get a hold of my physio but somehow gotta get myself fixed up for the last stretch

day 215 – cypress we go

image

skiing season came late this year but better late than never. first time going up this year with some crazy friends who speeds down black runs and jumps at will. finally enough volume and fresh powder, but too much on some runs caused a few of us to wipe up hard and way too foggy the visibility was less than 15 feet. very happy that my ankle recovery is coming along nicely but also helped that the ski boot doesn’t allow for any extra movements

day 208 – tape job

image

that’s more than half a roll of tape used in one go. this is the amount of tape required to tape my ankle and knee to provide stabilization and continue to train for this weekend. no time to sit, rest, wait or waste time because the competition is only days away and i still feel super unprepared

day 197 – happy valentine’s day

a visit to physio for my peach sized ankle in the day plus home made fusion steak and veggies paired with chocolate red wine, belgian cappuccino frozen yogurt waffles and candlelight dinner completed my night.  thanks for being my chauffeur and making my night a good one even under such unfavourable circumstances.  happy valentine’s day
