day 566 – physio at his best

image

physio had his radar on me the entire morning and went crazy today pushing me hard and maxing out my leg. said he was on a mission to push my left leg to match the other because he’s simply not satisfied that i am settling. upon hearing that, my kinesiologist was on my back because physio faulted him for not working me hard enough. physio also discussed my mri report to confirm results came back negative. the good news is nothing broken and nothing torn, the not so good news is he has the green light to hurt me in any possible way to fix whatever is wrong with me

twenties series: [eight] pace

it may sound strange coming from a person whose life runs at the speed similar to the highway traffic where park zones do not exist. i am just at a point in my life where all my commitments and deadlines are happening all at once, and no matter how fast i push myself, i can never fit everything into a my twenty four hour span. i hate to say that all my commitments may not even fit even if i was granted an additional two hours each day. i drive a bmw with a relatively powerful engine, if i was given a race caliber car, it would be scary scene to see how fast my life moves at when i step on that gas pedal. in the past month, i have been running on a full load and tight schedule based on an average of five hours of sleep per night. its a miracle that i am still functioning after several weeks but i am uncertain how long i will be able to hold up. some things has got to change or i won’t be able to keep up with this hectic and crazy lifestyle. with that said, life is not a race to the finish line, learn to slow it down and pace yourself. you will be glad you did because there are many rewards at every stage of life and chances are you may miss it if you speed through everything

day 424 – walk in the park

image

taking advantage of the sunshine and the last of my weekends for an extended period of time. my schedule is booked all the way every weekend until january 2015. feeling sleep deprived after being up until 3:30am last night, no wonder i passed out on the couch before dinner time. it’s an uphill battle from here on. it will be interesting to see how will my life change and how will i hold up

day 410 – tennis time

image

having been plagued with waves of injuries throughout the summer months left me nothing but an empty feeling inside. constantly battling injury after injury, i am finally on the mend, feeling better and can finally say my knees didnt bother me during today’s tennis session. able to take advantage of the perfect weather and do what i love to do without limitations has rarely happened the past few months. but because it happened today, it turned my weekend from a good one to a great one. taught me never to take health for granted, and i can only cherish every pain free moment more than before. it’s a good feeling i sense i have turned the corner and feel closer to my normal self again. the focus over the next little while will be on getting better, training back to normal self and eventually to a better and stronger state

day 315 – physio’s jail free verdict

image

one of the best days that brought me the happiest news in past three weeks. physio informed me xrays shows no fracture and i no longer require an mri like initially suggested. which ultimately means i am finally jail free and cleared to gradually get back. all i need to do is do the exercise as i am told to work my way back up, and let my physio take care of the rest and hopefully make my comeback soon. it will for sure involve a lot of patience, hard work, training and tons of beating. i will no doubt work hard at it and push myself within the constraints, because i am determined to get back and surpass my top form

day 311 – getting rays done

image

just what the physio ordered, getting my xrays done bright and early saturday morning before my appointment. was told if xray report is negative, an mri may be necessary to solve this mystery. being on the injured reserve list for over two weeks is killing me and my soul and making my body rot. is this how jail feels like?? done my part and all i can do is hope for the best knowing i could be out indefinitely
