I Fell Asleep – The Climb #248

Tuesday 26th September 2017

I went to a physio today about my back.  There’s part of me that’s amused by the fact that if you’d said 5 years ago I would be going to see a sports physio, I would have not believed you.

Anyways, the good news is that it’s not a trapped nerve or a slipped disc or anything serious.  It just seems that my thighs are so rock solid that it’s causing my lower back to get compressed.  It also means that when I do things like squats and deadlifts I’m doing it through my legs and not through my glutes.

I had a bit of a massage to loosen it up but was told to carry on as normal because I got the impression that they want to see how I tense up over the next week.

But the result was that I seemed to be rushing all over the place today.  As a result when I got in this evening, I collapsed on the bed and fell asleep until the evening.  I’ve been feeling quite fatigued today and suspect that a mix of post-tournament exhaustion, work stress, not sleeping well due to back pain and getting over my cold last week, have left me feeling a little run down.

To be honest, the only downside to the sleep was that I was really late starting meal prep for the next few days and so by the time I sat down the evening had pretty much happened.

I played some Warcraft to chill out whilst watching some Youtube videos for research.  However, even that was complicated today by the fact that my keyboard mappings seemed wrong, and I wasn’t able to get to my secondary abilities.  A couple of app uninstalls and reinstalls alter and I’d come to the conclusion that I’d worn out my keyboard.  Given how many words I’d written on it coupled with the amount of gaming I was not be surprised.

However, given that I’d had to shell out for the first of a number of physio appointments, buying a new expensive keyboard was going to have to wait.  I remapped to another key and thought that I’d just have to make do.  However, I noticed upon logging into a different character the modifier button worked, so it’s some weird config issue.

Annoying, but at least it’s not going to be expensive.

Despite feeling a bit exhausted I’ve still felt quite upbeat after yesterday.  I think the thing for me is that no matter what anyone could say, I feel I fought well… and I did so without prepping my focus as I usually have to do.  Plus, I had a bad back.

Obviously, I’m now interested as to whether the bad back reigns me in somewhat (and therefore makes me fight better) or whether I’m not fighting at my full potential.  However, that might be a few weeks.

The physio thinks they’ll have me right long before my next tournament.  That would be good as I really could do with a good night’s sleep.  After the cold and then pulling my back, I don’t feel I’ve slept well in ages.  That said, I didn’t feel as bad after my nap this afternoon.
