day 1614 – bruised butt

meetings got shifted around so immediately had a long meeting once i got into the office. it was so busy at work before i knew it, it was already 11am and i have yet to eat my go to breakfast of peanut butter toast. i didn’t do a good job starting the month of october skipping my first meal, but i vouch to do better with eating. the fall in hockey really hit hard as i chose not to sit down at work all day because it gave my buttocks a ton of grief. i went to the gym to do my lower body workout which i probably shouldn’t have, but at least i exercised caution to make sure it didn’t cause it to feel worse. it was a much lighter day than i would have liked

day 1479 – lightly


with the way my life has been lately, today brought a slight smile that i haven’t seen or felt in weeks. got the nod from the chiro as long as i promise to keep it light and away from his nono list. went through all my big lifts but at most seventy percent of what i usually do. everything within my execution felt fine except for the bench. still no olympic lifts, plyos, overheards, nor ballistic movement, but just being back brought a smile to my face

day 1452 – soluable

i thought wrong when i thought i could go home and get back to the same routine. pretty much everything i’ve been able to keep down has been liquid substance with the exception of bread. the only solid food i’ve managed to keep down is a plain toast at breakfast. sunday is not the same when i can’t heave this bar but i simply have no energy in me. sadly i had to refrain myself from doing my lifts and keep it light and under control

day 1264 – chrome toys

the gyms have been busy all week, but hopefully it dies down when the resolutioners can’t keep up. my eyes lit up when i saw a new chrome olympic bar sitting idle on the rack waiting for me. i see they finally decided to unwrap them from the boxes. both my workout and power skating class went well. the pain and discomfort is still there but  recovery is there too. it’s wishful thinking, but i hope i am back to normal by the end of this month. it was a productive day with workout, power skating, working from home and then preparing for the week as it will be another busy week ahead

day 1232 – work work work

back into the office at half past seven ready to work. after tutoring and a long fulfilling workout, i’m finally back home half past nine for a quick bite before doing some graphics work. no easing back in on this super long day. i have yet to get around to housekeeping stuff, but at least i’m over the hump. even though we didn’t spend any time together today, we both recognize and value the importance of today

day 1178 – get up and go

image

felt strong on this friday morning workout; the reset probably had some affect. still didn’t manage much sleep but energy level was decent enough to push through as the day unfolded. getting through the lifts a little easier with each successive workout, but i’ll keep it as is until i get back from portland. a week out of competition, i am not quite sure how i am feeling. competition aside, i’m unclear why i ¬†feel the way i do, or maybe it doesn’t even matter anymore

day 1166 – bars and boxes

image

something made me feel pretty good as i was left the gym today. maybe because my first attempts at box jumps in over a month turned out really well. i thought i’d try some easy ones just to reintroduce it to my body, but ended up matching my normal height. it wasn’t that i was pain free, but the fact the pain didn’t escalate is something i’ll gladly take. i can honestly say through the past two weeks i’ve been painstakingly patient. i hope it pays off and treats me well with recovery
