day 1875 – treadmill intervals

spent my off day from flipping for a rare cardio moment because i simply can’t find a way to appreciate it. i don’t think i’ve been on a treadmill for more than five minutes since i last did the sunrun. by the end of it, i was dropping with sweat. my lower body is so taxed from my regular activities i need not to do more leg work even more on my off days. the rest of the time was for core, stretching and rolling

day 892 – new nemesis

image

i knew the day would come when i would outgrow my pipe and needed to find a harder alternative. for as much as i use my rollers, my body has developed enough immunity to the pipe it no longer serves me justice. i have passed the stages of foam, firm foam, even firmer foam, ridged foam, plastic and pipe in sequential order; let’s get straight to the point and go for metal. found a new effective tool to roll out my frequently overused legs and get it to a functional state

day 607 – bedtime

image

sleeping way earlier than my norm today and by that i mean three hours earlier than what i have been getting past two weeks. i guess my body finally decided to crash from over exhaustion and it can no longer take it anymore. poor body is so tight and sore in too many ways even my roller cannot help me. hope i get a well deserved and much needed restful night and able to resume grinding soon

day 604 – bashed legs

my legs are bashed with countless bruises from everything as of late. i didn’t even realize how much damage was caused and what i did that may have caused it but it may or may not be a harmful thing. i guess its just another sign my pain receptors no longer feel its something that requires my attention. it’s probably preferable my legs don’t take any additional beating until the current ones subsides. i think my physio’s going to have a thing or two to say when he sees this

day 361 – just rolling

image

my right knee has been clicking and uncomfortably pulling which means it’s time to roll out and release all the built up knots and kinks out of my legs. as painful as it will be, it’s necessary to getting all that tightness out and range of motion back. i expected to be badly bruised up after all that rolling but that’s nothing new, not like my leg isn’t already bruised up

day 339 – kings and queens tourney

part one of my marathon day of dodgeball and taekwondo rehearsal, at dodgeball fundraising tournament featuring our superman jersey. been so out of dodgeball for a few months and the rust really shows. favouring both my shoulder and wrist only made my aim and power decrease but i am most pleased my legs held up throughout dodgeball and taekwondo
