day 879 – fisting

image

for the first time in two weeks, i can finally fully close my hand to make a fist. it’s by no means comfortable in that position and it’s trying to resist that motion, but just being able to do so painfree is a huge breakthrough. fifteen days of not being able to close my hand cost me many days of missed but necessary training. even though my gyming continued, lots had to be forfeited or altered to compensate for the finger. i never realized how essential fisting was, but it became hard learned knowledge

day 536 – hips don’t lie

image

because it has happened so many times, i now am trained to know when some things are out of alignment. i am almost certain my hip is out and it’s pretty much taken my knee with it and made my whole back seize up from compensating. at the moment, taping my knee is the only way i can make it functional. good thing my kinesiologist helped me out a bit hopefully enough to tough it out before i go into physio next

day 338 – releasing knots

image

tightness all around my legs to compensate for all the parts that aren’t doing its job. paying the price all at once with some painful rolling and massage for not having been keeping up with releasing all the muscles and stretching throughout this prolonged recovery process. everything is expectedly tight, must stop being lazy and start stretching again. being held down or pinned to avoid uncalled for kicking, not what i would call the normal massage

day 89 – feel like crap

image

when the bad comes, it seems to come all at once. on top of compensating for my ailing knee, i am now mute and sick, all occurred and fallen apart in consecutive days. drinking some nasty benylin, calling it a night and hoping things will feel a lot better when i open my eyes tomorrow morning
