day 2189 – fainty

been a while since i had it so bad. so bad that i left work early and took a nap in my car before i knew i was in condition to be behind the wheel. the fact that i nearly fainted was the reason i skipped out on flipping today and headed home. i was pretty sad but it left me with no choice but to crawl into bed. i hope to feel better tomorrow because i still got work to do, workout to crush and softball to play

day 945 – bed ridden

image

still trapped at home feeling unwell. instead of being my active self out there at gym and dodgeball, i spent way too much time on my bed. i am usually a trooper and will stop at very little; this just isn’t one of those times. i hate being sick because everything i need to do gets put to a halt and even backtracks. to look at things on the bright side, at this point last winter, i was already sick four times compared to this year’s first

day 909 – letup

image

a rare and validated rest day after a crazy action packed monday. my whole body especially my legs are feeling each rep and every move that i did yesterday. i really did go all out and overboard with dodgeball. as crazy as it sounds, i really did attempt to get my exercise in, but my legs just wouldn’t allow. i am urged to take the day off to stretch and roll instead of overtraining and put myself at risk

day 815 – chances slipping

image

the registration deadline is closing in and my chances of being able to compete is diminishing. it’s looking a lot like i have to give up my hope of competing in pan am club cause i still am not cleared to kick. i was really looking forward to going to this one but wouldn’t sacrifice quality just so i can go. a competition would lose its meaning if i went in under trained and not able to uphold my own standard. i know very well that i would feel even worse if i went and did subpar because i am not there to participate but to contend. i guess i will turn my attention to focus on rehab and prepare for what’s next in store for me

day 555 – more drugs

image

back for more drugs because i simply can’t get enough of these cough syrups. and if it wasn’t for zero improvements after finishing another bottle of cough syrup and more bags of cough candy, i would not be going to the doctor for prescribed medication. i can’t continue feeling so useless and weak, forcing me to miss out on so much training, work, regular routine and fun. hoping this will be enough to knock me out tonight and wake up tomorrow feeling human again

day 475 – physioterrorist

image

wrist took a series of unfavorable blows this past week which caused it to be pretty much next to useless. though my left hand is much weaker in comparison, it is used extensively and losing function changes all complexity. driving is made tenfold more difficult since i am a left handed driver.  a much needed check up with my physio to fix that ailing wrist and seized up leg. after some excruciating pain, i was told to stay put for next twenty four hours and do nothing beyond walking and heat pad

day 340 – recovery day

image

out of commission all day while i am getting my protein dosage and jacuzzi going. it’s hard after being so inactive for so long and then trying to get back into the grove. went all out during yesterday’s dodgeball tournament and now my body aches all over. needless to say i don’t like long lay offs and definitely don’t like to be shut down at all
