day 1527 – iced knee

bounced off the floor hard when i dropped down too quickly to the floor. my chiro was on site but there was nothing he could have done for me there. there’s no taking it easy and i hate sitting out.  the damage is already done so i might as well continue playing through it; finished the night and immediately slapped an ice pack on it to stop the swelling. despite bruising up bad, it’s always a fun night playing with the girls. i am a little doubtful to be healthy for saturday night’s rivalry

day 988 – doctor blows

image

going in to see a medical doctor to satisfy my parents’ even though i knew it was going to be a total waste of time, and i couldn’t be more right. started off the week with a 39 high fever, dropped down a degree or two, but suddenly shot back up to 39 and now i even have cold-like symptoms. the doctor told me i don’t have strep throat, something i could have concluded myself. if i wasn’t semi dying, i wouldn’t even think twice about going in at all. what a way to spend my special one monther

day 944 – dinner in bed

image

pretty much in bed all day including eating dinner. for a second my taste buds had no idea what i was swallowing. the combination of a cold and whiplash neck pain kept me from all my activities. lying down, sleeping and taking drugs are the only things i can do at the moment. not the kind of rest days i had in mind but these are the only days i will get rest time because my body simply can’t do anything

day 913 – off limits

image

i had to stay away from legs exercises all week long because of my shin issues, today was no exception. it hasn’t allowed me to walk or drive properly, let alone handle any lower body exercises – trust me, i was crazy enough to try. a couple days of inactivity and so called rest, and i’m sad to say my legs are still off limit. i still got to do what i got to do, so i guess today is yet another upper body day. i’m almost begging my shins to heal up so i can go about my business

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 582 – suit up

image

i am still feeling the soreness of after effects of exercises earlier this week. resting my overused muscles and taking it as easy as i could with lots of stretching and pipe rolling. i can’t really do much with a sore posterior so let’s hope tomorrow’s lone practice will do wonders and get me ready for provincials. in the meantime. i am trying on my poomsae uniform and still debating if i want to pull it out for this weekend
