today’s struggles

when times get rough and life gets tough, i try to remind myself that it’s only training me to be stronger for tomorrow. if the road to success was plain and simple, it would not be worth the sweat and hard work. understand that no matter what happens, there will be someone out there watching over you and ready to give you support when you most need it. and know that someone will be there to catch you when you fall, but ultimately its up to you yourself to stand back up and carry on. i know very well that if i stick with it and put in the effort, its just a matter of time before i get the results i want. it’s all about taking the necessary steps knowing everyday i will be stronger than the day before. because nothing beats being able to do something i couldn’t do yesterday and only i can change that

day 293 – the long road begins

been putting off proper rehab for my ankles and knees and using temporary fixes throughout all the training. now that the nationals are over, it’s time to do proper rehab to train and strengthen it for long term fixes. physio was very angry and will not let me continue without addressing these issues. will be a long and difficult road ahead, but i am determined to do whatever it takes and stick with it to fix the issues and continue to train and do the things i love. because i believe what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and i am out to prove it

today is a good day as my physio cleared me to resume light activities and training in preparation for competition. my eyes glowed and my heart exploded with joy when he broke the news to me. pleasantly surprised my physio got me back on my feet so quickly, i can’t thank my physio and kinesiologist enough for everything but i take some credit since i had to listen to stay put, work hard at rehab and do all those dorsiflexions. the best news in a week along with glimpse of sunshine in the afternoon
