day 1785 – pvc roller

on the ground for hours rolling myself out now that i’m feeling the pains of a pull. i hadn’t noticed it during class, but i sure feel the effects and spasm after adrenaline wore off. class time was spent more on combos, cheat seven twenties, cartwheels and back tucks. i was quite pleased with my stuff today especially getting a handful of back tucks with less and less of a spot. it’s just matter of getting the confidence now to making it over with no hesitation. my body is showing signs of retrieving the muscle memory, but for the time being, i’m doing everything possible do to alleviate this pain sensation but looks like i’ll need to an appointment tomorrow

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

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

day 1333 – saturday off

so this is what a saturday off feels like – no 7am alarm, doing my research, getting myself caught up with planning before an active stretching session. moving was difficult since i’m ultra sore from whatever i pushed my body to do yesterday, but i’ll take the soreness. hitting the spot with some ramen and some quality time with mo. i’m going to enjoy all twenty four hours of this because it’ll be a while before i can say that again 

day 1316 – rest and roll

took a full day off work and school to stay home and rest because my poor body is overstressed from all the strenuous events and travels. of course i should have dragged my butt into the clinic to get fixed because i can feel my kneecap not being in its place. being me, i once again postponed my physio appointment and instead stayed home to roll out some muscle tightness
