Day 74 – Reflexes man!

At work I've been using a makeshift pull-up bar to do some exercises during the day. The only problem - it wasn't secure. During a pull-up It came crashing down and I landed flat smack on my knees. But before I hit the ground, the bar hit my head and I saw stars. So there I was knees throbbing and hurt and a goose egg forming on my head. A while ago I thought that if this bar ever gave way I'd have the reflexes to get my feet under me and be safe - never thought about the bar hitting my head and I guess my reflexes, as good as I thought they've gotten, still need a lot of work.

I've been taking it easy for the past few days with the exception of meditation, stretches and some agility but I'm going into the doctor today because my left knee is still bothering me.

Hopefully the Doc gives the A-Okay and I'll be able to finish up bruised but strong.

See you soon.


  1. Oh no! Hope you're back in top shape soon!

  2. That sucks man. I have the same thought about my pull up bar. Reality strikes when it wants to, all you can do is keep preparing!

  3. Oh, no! Take care!

    The bar just fell on me too - my nose, specifically. Did you find yourself reacting differently to the pain?
