day 2119 – ankles ultrasound

it’s no surprise this step had to come after hurting it late february and it still severely limits me to this day. i went into downtown radiology to get some ultrasound done, but instead of doing just one ankle, i tampered with the referral notice and added my right ankle scan as well. i’m not really sure what is the answer i would like to hear, but an answer would be great so at least i could get started on solving the problem

day 1976 – eleiko platform

i’m pleasantly shocked when i walked into city square steve nash to find two new sparking platforms with sets of bumper plates neatly lined up. i only wish brentwood would also replace some of their broken bumper plates. it’s unacceptable to not even have one full set of bumper plates in the whole gym. i stayed pretty patient for five months waiting for my shoulder to heal and now i’m itching to get back into olympic lifting. when not in motion, the ligament doesn’t bother me, but got to be extra careful and not go ham too quickly. i’ve wanted to refine my techniques and this might be the year to do it

day 1825 – family doctor

this is a rather big deal when i make it an exception and visit my family doctor. after many months of ghosting her, even she was surprised to see me. she asked a bunch of questions, did some tests and wrote two referral notes and off i went. i took a day off work to run around from clinic to clinic; these tests and xrays are so time consuming. hopefully the results turn out negative. it’s a day off away from the office but not really – an influx of emails and a presentation to prepare for kept me busy

day 813 – ligament troubles

physio appointment can’t get any earlier than this. having a 7am appointment basically meant that i was still half asleep and struggling to be coherent which made it almost impossible for me to clearly explain to my physio what had happened at the time of injury. i mustered the most vague explanation, physio was better off finding the answers and figuring out the severity of the injury himself, and he did. he went through a series of tests to check for ligament tears and thankfully reported negative, but a ligament sprain isn’t something to be taken lightly by all means. today’s appointment had me on both ice and then electro, and that usually signals a prescribed rehab process is on its way. so that means no sports or physical activities until he says otherwise
