day 873 – more needles

image

back for more needles because i need my finger to work. it’s been getting better, but progressing slower than i’d like. at times i test it out cause it feels good enough to take on more, but i go overboard and it tells me to back off. feeling more and more impatient with each passing day, it’s really driving me up the wall. time is ticking and every minute passing is a minute of wasted and missed training time

twenties series: [four] body

once a body part is injured, it will never be the same and will never get back to its original state. it’s no secret that i have been shattered and broken through the years, my history is longer than what you can imagine. many think i am crazy for not taking the necessary breaks when i am injured and making premature and spontaneous decisions to return to action. in the past i have always believed bumps and bruises won’t stop me from doing what i do, neither does sprains and breaks. thankful for the handful of people who takes care of me and picks me up when i fall and gets me back in the game; plus the numerous people have been around to always remind me to tame it down. i still believe that but i am much more aware and concerned with the risks i take. the older i grow, the more i understand the importance of taking care of my body and doing the necessary rehab. i learned that are no shortcuts and abbreviated version of the road to recovery, i wished i learned that before my body lost the ability to sense pain and stopped sending my brain the correct stimuli. i can guarantee i am working much harder to recover correctly, taking care of my problems head on and get back stronger. i will not give up the sports i love, but i will do all with more caution and continue to do the maintenance work required. i think i am starting to understand the saying take care of your body, it’s the only thing you have to live in

day 388 – alternating legs

image

one day it feels fine and next day its completely opposite. this time attending to my left leg that somehow messed up without my awareness. there’s been unwanted scraping and clicking sounds when doing certain movements which has got me worried. both kneecaps taking turns breaking down constantly challenges my physical and mental aptitude. i don’t know what i have ever done to them but i know my knees hate me for life

 

day 387 – dysfunctional

image

my uncooperative legs have been preventing me from carrying out my regular routines. currently on the mend with my finger crossed whatever that’s bothering me is not too serious like the original diagnosis because i hate being benched and watching from the sideline. i hate it when it interferes with my routines and no one understands how i feel how hopeless and desperate i feel

day 354 – rain at wwtd

image

mother nature obviously shows no love for walk with the dragon. was hit by a big heat wave last year and massive down pour the year before. so glad one of our major annual demo event is finally over and things slow down a little before competition season picks up again. my own part of the performance was far from good in my standards, could have and should have been much better. it’s been a long and steep recovery road the past eight weeks and a grind cramming in practices prematurely. this was the ultimate test for my knee but very content it passed the test and is finally rounding into form. i can’t complain
