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 2165 – pretherapy

a massage appointment that was rescheduled and rescheduled since early june. this was an appointment was originally set to take a look at my stiff neck and shoulders but turns out he has to tend to my hip was well. one thing i need to do a better job of for self care is stretching and rolling. i should consider switching my mattress and pillow because the pain and tension is ongoing

day 2150 – tsujiri cravings

it was a not so productive first grass session for myself. i didn’t feel like i could do anything properly as both my ankles are going haywire. though i wish i could do more and get some good training in, it was a fun grass session nonetheless. i still got to toss frisbees, softballs and footballs around. a bunch of us hit up tsujiri to satisfy our matcha cravings. i love matcha soft serve and i don’t think that’s a secret

day 2107 – swollen infection

when i look down at my ankle, it’s safe to say there’s something really wrong with it. i got myself into my chiropractor because i thought my ankle was locked, jammed or sprained of some sort, turns out i needed to go to hospital more. the size of my ankle is twice the size of my normal and there’s random bruising on my ankle bone not to mention it’s burning inside. he suggested there’s an infection and get it checked out as soon. me being me, i checked the emergency wait times and declined. i wasn’t going to spend six hours at the hospital, but booked in to see my family doctor tomorrow morning

day 2086 – ganglion

a growing lump in my right elbow forced me to make a trip into my family doctor’s office. the bump expanded so much, into something i believe to be a tumor. it bothers me so much, i would be in much pain every time i rest my elbow on something. i consistently press on it thinking it would flatten out, but so far that doesn’t seem like it’s working. my doctor referred me for an ultrasound and also got me an xray referral for my ankle. we’ll figure out what it is first, but she doesn’t suggest i trade in the cyst for a scar

day 1998 – shin splints

the shin splints got really bad today. i had a really hard time at taekwondo, but still had a hockey game to play afterwards. we were so short of skaters this game; we just rolled the skaters since we could only muster two on the bench. right before hockey, i did a retape and also did a combination of heat pad and vyper rolling. not helping the shin by having hockey on back to back nights

day 1948 – aerial

i was really close to landing one on last class but i wronged myself for not giving it a villiant effort and i was super hard on myself after the fact. i didn’t think i’d land one today based on the condition of my body. one after another, the coach pushed me harder and harder to land it. i really couldn’t stand the disappointment again. i had to push through the pain one after the other. it wasn’t the cleanest of aerials, but a first is a first. i went home with my sore body, but happy and grateful he had pushed for it. i would have regrets if disappointed myself again
