Neck Still Injured - But check out this sick Soccer Juggling Video

Still experienceing INTENSE pain in my left arm, shoulder, and neck. I am so fuc&ing frustrated it is insane. I am miserable. No soccer, no running, no goofing off. I can't do anything. I can barely work. Impossible to sleep. I wish this upon no one, and it makes the pain of my Crohn's disease complete childs play. Anyways, I could spend hours bitching about this. The most frustrating part is I have no clue when it will get better. I have been referred to a sports medicine doctor in downtown Orlando and am to schedule an MRI today. The x-rays shows some spinal compression and massive swelling coupled with vertical tears. Fuuuuuuuuuuuck.

Anyways here is an crazy soccer juggling video. I would be lucky to have this much skill in my left toe.

Neck and Shoulder Injury Update

Awful. Missed soccer Sunday. Missed a game tonight as well. I will also be missing soccer on Tuesday indoor and co-ed on Wednesday. Hoping to get back this coming Sunday. I put in 8 miles on the excercise bike on Saturday and put in 8.5 miles today. It hurts to walk, sit, type, etc...I don't think the bike is hurting it any worse and it is giving me some sort of workout.

Out with a neck injury

Missed a game today, missing one tomorrow, as well as Tuesday and Wednesday. I got a cortisone and steroid shot in my neck after re-injuring it while playing soccer last Wednesday night. I am in tremendous pain and dying to get out on the field.

VICTORY at Five Points Indoor Soccer

The Ducks Win, the Ducccckkkssss Wiiinnnnn! Thank god, the Ducks have gotten off the losing streak that has stretched into the double digits and two seasons. With a 14-10 win, the Ducks have begun a new streak. Without a doubt, we enter the playoffs as a the most dangerous low seed in histoy. Along these lines, my good friend David and his wife Stacey Dee are opening and indoor soccer arena just south of Orlando. We are all super stoked and can't wait. This will be full-field, REAL indoor soccer.

Crohn's Disease - ING Miami Half Marathon Updae

Although the CCFA website invited me to sign up and implied there would be a Central Florida group there doesn't seem to be. I was excited to sign up for this half-marathon, and asked for more info over a week ago. Today I got an email informing me of meetings in Boca and Miami...nothing in Central Florida. In fact, no one ever got back to me. Anyways, unless someone local wants to train and contacts me in the next couple of days....I think I am out.

Soccer Bonanza

Had a great game defensively and hustle wise, but only scored one goal Tuesday in Indoor (Longwood Indoor Sports - 5 Points Soccer). Took Wednesday c0-ed off due to a knee injury. Played tonight in the Christian League at Red Bug. Scored two quick goals then dropped to sweeper. I think we won 7-5. Outdoor Men's League Game Sunday vs. FC Rogue.

15 mile bike ride

Took a bike ride from Casselberry to Winter Park and back. 95 degrees but it was cool on the bike. Much easier than running but i don't think it doing much for me cardio or weight loss wise. I also hit the gym this am and lifted ran just a half mile because my knee hurt, and did 20 minutes on the cross-trainer thingy.

2.2 in 96 degree heat

my first run in quite a while. Crohn's was feeling OK so I put in a toasty warm run in the heat (96 degrees) at an 8 minute pace (after I mowed and washed 2 cars). I may run to cuch tomorrow morning. Felt good.
