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. 

day 1698 – rainy runĀ 

my first real long run in three years and quite possibly my first ever run in the rain. nailed the sunrun distance like i set out to do and pleased with the result. my legs were spent from the ten kilometre run, followed by five hour taekwondo shift and then some hockey. i could barely move halfway through the day and expect it to get worse tomorrow. i guess i didn’t exactly think it through before committing to all in one day, but that’s kind of how i roll. in the meantime, there’s lot of rolling to be done

day 1504 – nothing extra

one of the rare days i’m headed straight home from work because my hip and knee started causing havoc. i tried to alleviate the inflammation by icing, flossing, rolling, but nothing seemed to be the solution. i was optimistic it would get better evening so i should be good to go to the gym, but wasn’t the case. it got so bad that even with a knee brace on, all i really could do was sit in front of my desk and do some catch up paperwork

day 1372 – hotel hopping

image

walking the street and hotels all day until my feet hurts and my ankles are swollen. it’s not often i walk over 25000 steps in one day to the point where my legs feel like they’re about to fall off. the first day of hd expo is spent doing research on the pretty hotels of vegas. i’ll have to be at the booth and venue tomorrow; i probably won’t enjoy it, but i’ll make the best out of it and hope it goes by fast and smooth
