day 1664 – boarding school

expected nothing short of crowds at cypress after some significant snowfall in the city. long lineups with freezing temperature, but still very fun learning how to carve properly. sunny day with lots of powder, but all the accumulated wipeouts are still pretty harsh. i’m slightly addicted to skiing and boarding and i want to keep going until the season end. but first, i have to stop at physio to fix up my whole body that’s beaten up from so much activity all week long; my physio will not be impressed that he has to attend to so many body parts

day 1525 – damaged body

the appointment was so early i woke up close to a dozen times worried that i would miss it. had my butt looked at after being in utter discomfort; seeing much bruising made me worrisome. to fix my misalignment and damages, i had adjustments made for my tailbone and hip flexor. the wrist pain is getting really bad it’s not really a functioning hand at the moment; adds to the insult of my other already tendon damaged hand. physio got angry at me for pushing this appointment two weeks late but work just doesn’t allow for it. i’m kind of sad i’m already so utterly broken right now, a little consideration would be nice

day 1524 – bruised butt

meetings got shifted around so immediately had a long meeting once i got into the office. it was so busy at work; before i knew it, it was already 11am and i have yet to eat my go to breakfast of peanut butter toast. i didn’t do a good job starting the month of october skipping my first meal, but i vouch to do better with eating. the fall in hockey really hit hard as i chose not to sit down at work all day because it gave my buttocks a ton of grief. i went to the gym to do my lower body workout which i probably shouldn’t have, but at least i exercised caution to make sure it didn’t cause it to feel worse. it was a much lighter day than i would have liked

day 1355 – midjump

powering through easter sunday with some power cleaning. i had to stop my jumps as i heard something in my tailbone midway through a jump. i hope a combination of heat pad, ice pack and advil will alleviate some discomfort because that’s the last thing i need to take with me on vacation. i did a terrible thing to my parents and feel the guilty that i really owe it to my parents. i’ll make note to never let that happen again

day 708 – just another

physio this morning brought some surprises. first time this year i need not to do muscle stim which i guess is good and bad news. maybe because my left knee was acting up and needed his attention. another surprise, but not really surprised, is both my hip and tailbone were a little messed up from that raccoon incident. it was so busy at the office today the wait was even longer than usual and before i knew it, i spent too much of my morning here

day 341 – keeping it real

conversations i have with my physio looks something like this.  with him, i can talk about anything unlike most doctors i know. thankful he’s been around to attend to my needs and keeping me in the game through the decade. he’s been helping me since day one otherwise i would not be able continue doing what i love. he is definitely like no other and knows me far too well
