I’ve got friends who are leaving FaceBook. I can’t blame them. The place is a bit of a cesspit. But I miss some of those folk, so I’m making a conscious effort to be back on this site more often. Hopefully I can keep it up.
And in other news: today I managed to return to my feet from a martial forward roll for the first time in probably two years. The arthritis in my knees is fucking horrible, but I’m damned if I’ll let it dictate terms. The pain and reduced mobility had been increasing steadily for some time.
I switched a few things around. Reduced the numbers of some exercises, and changed them so I do them in the evenings, not the mornings. It’s working. Shit’s still painful, but I’m handling stairs without the railings, and yeah, there’s that forward roll thing.
Gonna keep working on this. I will not be controlled by my goddam failing knees.
