Tree Training on the way to recovery
« on: January 14, 2011, 08:41:04 PM »
On july 11th I tore my achilles tendon, I have continued to train as best I can including times when I was training while wearing a walking cast. Still my training has had to be very limited. Its finally to the point were I can start moving without allot of hesitation, still I am not yet trying to move fast or powerfully just working flow and choosing environment thats softer on my body. This is the first in a series of videos showing my recovery. This area is has been my salvation the tightly packed tree limbs have given me oppurtonities for fluid movement without much pressure on my ankle and allowed me to continue training even when most other areas didn't offer me much. I love this spot.

I shall not fear, fear is the mind killer the little death that precedes total obliteration

I will face my fear, I will let it pass over and through me and were it is gone, I will turn the inner eye and see its path, and only I will remain.

Good to see you're moving around again Rafe.

But I dunno...Doing parkour with a cast and crutches was pretty awesome. Personally, I think you should try breaking both legs and/or achilles tendons and master crutch-parkour. :)
