day 2379 – squatter problems

excited to be back at apex after three weeks of hiatus. i couldn’t be whiny with what i was told to do. instead of doing three reps of my paused squats, he changed it to five reps with the same weight. also did a clean wave and it felt pretty good enough to work up to the blues. not that i don’t want to do squats, i like squatting, but i also knew i needed to trick and play hockey tomorrow night. i know i’m in trouble when my legs are already jelly coming home from the gym. i jumped on the vyper for half an hour before i gave it a rest

day 2184 – taro ball

flipping was made difficult when my right glute suddenly started cramping after some front sweep drills. training was compensated but i was determined after some lacrosse ball rolling and stretching. i still continued to do what i could and made much progress on my x-out; so much i had the courage to try one on the floor. i think it’s getting really close. we ended the night going for noodles, shaved ice dessert, pokemon raid, and a visit to wu’s. not a bad way to end a friday night

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 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 1862 – knee dimple

while on the ground rolling, i can’t help but notice a dimpled spot in my knee. it’s a short work week, but i’ve been more fatigue waking up every morning as the week wears on. what i really need is a vacation or some personal time off away from work. i must be really burnt out from not taking a vacation all year long. continuing the grind no matter what part of the week it is

day 1785 – pvc roller

on the ground for hours icing and rolling myself out after feeling the pains of a pull. i hadn’t noticed any pain or spasm until i got home and adrenaline wore off. prior to that, i had gone to class to work on more combos, cheat seven twenties, cartwheels and back tucks. i was quite pleased with my stuff today especially getting a handful of back tuck practices in with less spot. i feel better about it and it’s just a matter of getting the confidence now to making it over with no hesitation. in the meantime, i’m doing everything possible to alleviate this pain sensation i’m feeling done my back; and an appointment is upcoming

day 1702 – kpc

late into the office because i had to go in for another regular physio checkup. what was suppose to be just stretching became rolling, and from rolling it became dynamic exercises. it seems i’m always doing exercise like i’m in circus school. as usual he went through my standard list of ankle, hip, back, neck, shoulder and thumb, and then more. i had no idea my knee cap was out of alignment, again. my knee cap has been stable in the recent months but clearly needed a little attention today. fun fact is i’ve been a part of my physio clinics existence for fourteen of the twenty years.
