day 1285 – badbell hog

it seems everyone is busy with super bowl sunday so there’s no meatheads to be seen. i had the whole cage to myself so i carried out my work using a pair of barbells. i decided my big weights for leg must go on after power skating, so even though skating session today was a tougher one than all previous times, i couldn’t change my mind. i knew i made a mistake of deciding to go straight into that workout, but i don’t regret one bit of having completed it as planned. it was heavy on my shoulders and my legs still feel the burn as i lay in bed, but the fact i pushed through is satisfying

day 822 – back in motion

really my first time back in the gym after knee failing and having a brief scare with my ligament diagnosis two weeks ago; and that for me, is beyond a long break. i was a little worried i wouldn’t be capable of anything near my best but most of my motions felt alright. it felt really good just to be back cause i missed it dearly – i just missed moving, period. definitely pushed it pretty hard today and expect to be pretty sore tomorrow but that’s a price i will pay

day 758 – physio checkup

having my regular morning physio check up and it was a positive one, held up nicely since last visit and that’s huge for me. it’s a sign of progress and a big step in the right direction considering i have been doing a fair amount of my activities during this time span. my reward for having such positive feedback is some trolling courtesy of my physio and kinesiologist who demanded some unexpected numbers and then threw a curveball at me. i had a lot of hesitation but they gave me the sense there was no way out of it knowing i must do it or i am not going home
