day 688 – ultra sore

image

i was right about my legs feeling like they were hit by a truck. totally expected it to feel this way after yesterday’s visit. every part of my legs were sore to the bone and many times when i felt like my legs would give in. sitting, walking and all the most basic movements were all so difficult and painful. even when i wasn’t moving, i could feel the muscles pulling in every possible way. the world must have stopped spinning because i managed to climb into bed before midnight

day 687 – morning physio

image

stumbled into the clinic still in half sleeping mode and physio was quick to take note. he figured giving me a bunch of crazy exercise was going to wake me up and increase my alertness. another stint on the muscle stim after a tiring routine, makes me believe that i will be doing muscle stim forever and ever. important visit today because i had messed up my knee and groin and needed to get that fixed heading towards montreal

day 453 – foam roller

image

extended time away from my regular gym routine really doesn’t sit well with my body. my legs are sore to the bone after leg day it hurts to do any kind of movement including walking and standing. rolling out the tightness is brutal but it must be done and all i can think of is it hurts so good. i guess this is what i must pay for when i don’t keep up with my gyming

day 416 – pistol squat

image

stuck around after class to attempt my first pistol squat since terribly messing up my knee. a little shaky and not in the best form but all is good when i was able to do a few without experiencing pain. it took me quite a while to train for this and certainly involved a lot of pushing and still only able to complete it on my right, but still work in progress. thank you for making it possible even though i said it wasn’t possible and you single handedly erased my doubts. i am glad i can still maintain this ability even having not done it in over a month, never want to lose it

day 231 – sandwich board

image

on one of my random wandering moments because it was nice and sunny outside. spotted this along my walk and thought it was a joke worth sharing. why can’t i stand up, because i am too tired. yes, that’s how my legs feel like after leg day or all those exercises my kinesiologist makes me do
