    Living with the Consequences

    I must accept that I have been a bit too busy to do anything regarding my duties in general. Everything comes since the competition in which, to my surprise, I did a decent job. The thing is that during the competition I did not perform as bad as I thought. In fact, I even managed to make almost my best time of last year without having serious pool training on the last 3 months. In fact, I can ensure that I only have 3 days of pool practice in the last 4 months. When I was in the competition, I […]

    Weird Feeling of Progress,

    Yesterday was a curious day of practising in the water. I went back to Fischerinsel at 6:30 a.m. to find a really crowded pool for my taste. There I was able to make another little test of my leg by swimming other 1000 meters in around 20 mins. My training is bellow for those interested on reading. What is interesting about it, is that after all the knee seems that is behaving a bit better than how it was before the operation. Maybe, it has something to do with the therapy exercises which somehow are increasing the range of motion […]

    Painful Weekend time to Take some Decisions

    Back to my training and therapies today after a nice but painful weekend. Painful mostly because of my own fault. After enjoying a nice evening, I felt asleep with my pillow so high that affected my neck.  Now 3 days later, I still have pain even though I got an injection to deal with that. However, that did not affect my training in a significant way. However, I haven’t been able to go to the pool to check if I could manage to swim in the vorkampf which makes me a bit worried. I guess that tomorrow, I will take […]

    First week gone

    Today is a good day, I managed to do the shoulder press without even noticing the pain. Yes, the pain came later in a  really natural fashion which does not worry me. On the other side of the spectrum, it is on the legs in which things are a bit more “complicated”.  I managed to do my training according to week 1 Friday, without problems.  However, just after my shoulder therapy, I started to have a weird pain in the back of my knee while walking. I guess that my knee is not as efficient as I wanted it yet, but […]

    A Little Step Forward

    Finally, I managed to get the mental composure to start working again on this site. The original idea of this blog is mostly to work on my own progress. From time to time, I feel that I move too fast in a direction and end up a bit stuck after finishing. To explain the feeling, it is similar to that one we have when the really good book we are reading ends… So, for those who decide to read this, you can interpret my words as you want. But to me, this is more of a therapy… Enjoy the ride, […]
