Feeling happy today.
As from today I can say that I reached a recovery level of 55% or more.
I did some Taekwondo and my friend was stressing me like we used to before and I wasn't late to join in. We kicked each other and I saw an opening..... Just out of pure instinct I jumped spin kicked him in the head, knocking him out for a full minute.
I was shocked!
Everyone was shocked. They just stood there. My friend was on the floor.
I woke him up and my Master took care of him. Then my Master said to him: "You know who you're up against. Stay more alert"
Maybe he was hinting to me like "nice work" or something. I didn't get that.
My friend continued and he said he was ok. I said I was sorry. Even I was shocked that I was able to do it, and at the same time very happy.
This makes the training so much more fun now. I can do much more than I thought.
I even tried to run around the house when I got back home and it worked pretty well too. But my stamina is terrible. I get totally exhausted only after 15 seconds.
This is also something I'm not used to since I've always been able to do everything with ease.
So - I have passed 50% of recovery. This might be someone else's 150% but I'm only comparing to myself and nothing else.
I've been thinking about the kick a lot. I'm higher up now with a further reach so the impact must have been huge.
This makes me feel I can start competing again locally, smaller tournaments, and that gives a whole new joyful meaning to my life
My left(the most twisted leg) knee aches when I run and just slightly now. Like 0,5-1 on the pain scale. Right knee is fine.
It certainly doesn't look good when I run but I am doing it and feel happy about it.
I'm getting there - slowly
Have a happy weekend, I know I will
