Gym, knee, diet

Whattup, just a short post.
Basically had a consultation today abou the knee, turns out there is NOTHING wrong with my cruciate despite being told otherwise by 2 physiotherapists and its just my patellar that is bad, which has tendonitis. This confused me because being told about the cruciate so much i had it ingrained into my head that it was bad but apparently its fine so thats good. All i need to do is what im still doing, apparently patellar tendonitis can take up to 2 yrs to recover! But mine will recover much sooner im sure of it, going to rehab the hell out of it to avoid surgery on it so its a good result overall!

Diet is good atm, just wanted to say ive had no chocolate for 20 days! haha, yep thats good for me since i was having to many too often, and my carb intake has shot right down. All in all now i eat about 1500-2000 calories a day, and a bulk of it is fruit and veg, and lots of muesli and porridge lol. Ordered some soy and whey protein as well as a smoothie maker to make some fruity protein drinks, yum yum.

And below is a really lame video haha, dont know why im posting it. Basically me and mat went to a gym 'session' and NO ONE was there, so we had the WHOLE place to ourselves for about 2 hrs before being found and politely asked to leave. Nothing crazy or new, not much filmed, we were just having fun! oh and mats aerials are pwning mine like feck!


At least its an answer,

Just been out training in the rain at a pitch black playground with my bro for 2 hours, was great. My brother is 16 and got interested in parkour a while ago and properly started in october, going from not being able to do ONE pullup, to getting out 100 pullups tonight over the course of the session.
Well, yestarday I had an MRI scan, my dad and I drove to Cheltenham to get one done much much cheaper than here, and the result came through today. The reason I wanted one done is because there has been no significant improvement on my knee over the past 7 months or so, even tho I have been doing a lot of rehabilitation for it. So, I came back after training and my dad told me to have a look at the fax of results, turns out I have definately got a partial cruciate tear, which my dad reckons is most probably the road to surgery, which means waiting on the NHS for months to get it done, and then some more recovey to do for it. In a way, I am glad for this though, because I was doing all this work on my leg and trying to get it really great with little/no result, and if the scan had said things are fine, I wouldnt know what to do. So basically I have a consultation later this month to see what to do about it, but most likely is surgery. At this point I am willing to do anything to get it back to how it was and so I am able to fully train, and although I have been training as hard as ever these past months, I really miss being able to just do real and raw parkour, instead of some very light moves here and there, with a lot of conditioning and rehab replacing most of the technical side. So, finally I have an answer to why this process has been so agonisingly slow, and to think I originally did the injury over a year ago while doing a gainer in China.
So now I know what I have, I am gonna concentrate my training on strength, gymnastic basics, a LOT of bouldering, stretching, and very light parkour movements, but no impact. So I hope to be fairly strong by the end of all this, I just hope its ok by the summer!
Take care everyone and keep training,


Old passion

I used to be obsessed with art and its pretty much all i did when i was 16. Originally I was going to go to glasgow uni to do visual communication which is like graphic design and illustration, and in a way part of me wishes i did. Anyway, i was digging through some old photos of when i used to paint back in the day and it just reminded me of how much i loved drawing and painting, so i thought I would upload some of my old stuff, and maybe even add some new things, i would like to get back into it but its hard to get that mindset back, although i really think its a great skill to work on since its so expressive and you can do so much with it. Anyway, here is a link to some of my stuff which i have done over a year ago and some 2 years ago.
