day 1899 – cloudkicks

it was definitely an eye opening and jaw dropping event at flightclub this evening. trickers came from all over north america including calgary, seattle, california, illinois and even hawaii. everyone who came to battle was showcasing how they could defy gravity with triples and quads. though i just went into the clinic to realign my back, i still forced it to attend class and then the special seminars held by loopkicks thereafter. seeing what can be done inspires me with what i can learn

day 1385 – elbows


second week into my rehab program with the chiropractor and it brought some good news. although i still am off limits when it comes to the gym, second week is noticeably better than the first. i no longer wake up feeling like a train hit me.  my chiropractor likes that my back progressing at his pace, but now has to check whether my elbow is fractured. after bending it and twisting it, i’m leaning towards no fracture

day 1227 – what snow

image

so it’s snowing outside but not even snow stops me from this part of my day. my lifts are getting better but not progressing to where i had hoped. i need to work a little harder on them but my back is giving me lots of trouble i don’t know where it’s misaligned, locked, tight or strained. in the meantime i also need fix my eating that has gotten really poor with days where i wouldn’t have an appetite

day 1142 – leisure reading

image

slowly but surely my back is able to lift a little more with a little less pain. i’ve been pushing and testing the water for the past two weeks and now i’m almost back to my normal weights. still have to stay away from some lifts and movements until my range increases, but something is better than nothing. my limbs are fatigued but very happy with what my body will allow me to do. getting a head start on the presents i received from mo. he knows my interest within sports and my preference for leisure reading. doms already hit me; i’ll sit back and enjoy my new toys while my legs continue to tear itself apart

day 1138 – ktaping

image

it drives me insane being away from the gym for so many consecutive days. with physio’s help, the ktape and painkiller, my body gave it a valiant effort but still had a tough time. even my high pain tolerance didn’t allow me to do things the way i should be able to. what does it take to get back to my normal?? the week was full of ups and downs but i still had a fun weekend living the normal life with mo. the time together makes us grow together; we need to learn to get through things both highs and Iows

day 1132 – sushi for days

image

labour day was a lazy laid back day that included sushi for lunch and sushi for dinner. i do love my sushi and japanese food, i can eat sushi for days without getting tired of it. sandwiched in between the meals was a workout, shopping, grocery shopping and some project work. although the nagging back pain was getting worse, i was adamant on continuing with my monday routine. i stuck to lighter weights and still got some decent lifts in. must work harder if i want to eat

day 1131 – back in season

image

less goofing around from now on because offseason is officially over today. onward with the first of many coaching and training sessions of another season. practice went well; i had more of a coaching role today as it was a big bunch. reminded myself i would stay professional and i did. although it’s not a good sign when i start the first training relying on ktape stretched across my back
