Rule Number Three

Nothins ever easy ever. That's rule number three. ALways one step forward, two steps back. Didnt sleep much the last two night as I have a very interesting NEW pain in my bad left knee that I've never felt before. Dont mind the 'old" injuries pain as much as I fear something brand new that I havent dealt with before.

This is new,and I think I know why but who the hell really knows? I do know it aches no matter what postition the leg is in, and then disapates for no good reason. which means nerve pain to me, which means some kind of entrapment or compession thing as I havent had any trauma.Lovely. Its medial right where the most arthritic buildup is and I think that as my lateral hamstring tension (and pain) have diminished THIS is the new balance postition for my femur/tibia and its never been there before. Hence the inflammation which I've never had. THis feels inflammed. lots of ice and nsaids and emu oil massage.

Strangely enough it feel better to walk then to sit or lie down. Trained anyway of course. Usually that makes things better, for awhile anyway.

trained at Girya at 9 am
Clean and press

5/5 x 3 rounds =45 reps each arm, 90 total.

These were easy and the weight felt light.body is off though.Supersetted with

ballistic pullups
5,6,7,8,3,4,5, =41 reps

lots of thumper, joint mobility and chigong like shaking in between sets as well as floor time stretching straddles, pikes and rolls.gotta stay loose. plenty of herb tea.

ice ice and then some ice.

ice really makes a difference immediately. wow. feels better to stand and to release the tension that way.

Good, glad the ice is helping. Pain just sucks, diminishes the quality of life so much. Really shitty dude. Hope the new one goes away.

Pain is not fun. But we can use it to better our character and make us stronger men.

Keep up the awesome trianing. Your dedication to training is inspiring.
