I’ve titled this what I have as I want to catch you all up with what’s been going on with me, and an apology for you readers. After this short post, I’ll go back to my training blog as usual, promise, pinky promise.
You see I’ve a lot to say sorry for, and the best way I can do this and get you all up to speed, is to bullet point my sorries. So, here goes…
1) First and foremost, I apologise for the lack of new content. There were a number of factors involved, including a laptop giving up the ghost and dying on me, waiting on a new PC to be delivered to me as a replacement for the aforementioned dead laptop (and boy was that a struggle!), work and personal life getting in the way….you know, just the usual.
2) New site for your 30 Something Wrestling Training Diary fix. Now this one ties into the one above. Due to the number of factors involved, I kinda lost my spot over at TJRWrestling. It’s just one of those things I’m afraid. By the time I was ready to re-commence my diary/blog, John (Canton, owner and editor in chief of TJRWrestling.net) said that too much time had passed and the site was going in a particular way that my writing wouldn’t really be needed. As I said above, it was just one of those things and I still read all of the articles that are posted there. I wish nothing but the best for John, the team and the site. Being told that I wouldn’t be posting there actually made me get off my ass and do something about it, hence this site. So it really was a good thing! (Thank you John)
3) Keeping quiet on social media. Now if you spoke to my wife, this is me in a nutshell. When things aren’t going my way and it gets too hard for me to handle, I withdraw into myself a bit and keep out the way. So when things were going wrong for me, I stayed off social media and didn’t let you guys and gals what was in fact going on. It’s a character flaw that I will be working on, trust me, won’t happen again. I need to keep you all updated about the blog before you start to send me nasty, and in some cases threatening texts/emails/IM’s/DM’s asking for the next part!
4) Going forward. Now this is going to be a bitter pill to swallow folks, trust me, this one is nasty. Which is why I’ve left it until last. Hopefully you remember that I mentioned about my laptop going to electrical heaven? Well on there, and at the time of writing still unrecoverable, were my drafts for other diary entries. Other lessons I had attended at the SEW Training Academy, that I had written rough drafts for me to type out at a later date. Gone. Vanished. And in the words of Matt Hardy, DELETED!
So I did what any self-respecting amateur blogger would do, and tried to remember the lessons and start again from scratch. Unfortunately, being a 30 something guy, my memory isn’t what it used to be, and I can only remember parts of this lesson and that lesson, and probably not even in the right order.
With that in mind, I have decided to drop the “missing weeks”, and start fresh with my lesson on Sunday 17th July. It really kills me to do this, but I really can’t remember, and I would like to write about things that I know for sure, than write about things I’m a bit iffy about. Sorry folks….
Ok with that out the way, I’m hoping you’re still here, and you haven’t just upped and left because I’ve bored you to tears. It’s ok if you have as you wouldn’t be the first, but that’s another story for another time…..maybe.
Anyway, back to my wrestling training blog update. As you may recall (I hope you do as I did re-post my original two blogs here too) in my last posted lesson, I did myself a little bit of an injury. Well since then i have found out that the injury didn’t occur at the lesson, it was a pre-existing one.
It turns out that my head spinning and feeling nauseous wasn’t due to not tucking my chin in as I took the bump. It was because I had an inner ear infection.
Now those that don’t understand human physiology (much like myself when I was diagnosed) won’t know that your balance comes from your ears. And the slightest little deviation inside the ears can play havoc. Now according to my doctor, due to the length of time that I had my infection for, it’s left me with permanent damage, hence my symptoms.
To say I was crushed with the diagnosis would be an understatement. I left the doctor’s surgery looking like I was about to face The Brothers Of Destruction in a 2-on-1 handicap match.
It wasn’t until I saw my little dude Logan later that evening, that my mood improved. Just talking to him about it in simple terms made me realise that even though I had a few tiny problems, there were others like Zach Gowan (look him up, if he doesn’t inspire you then you’re a cold hearted bastard/bitch) who had a lot more thrown at them and still set out what they wanted to achieve.
So that’s what I did. I gave a Stone Cold salute to my problems and carried on regardless……
Which is where I’ll start my next lesson blog. It’ll be posted, RIGHT HERE, for you guys and gals, in the next day or two I promise (see I’m working on that character flaw!).
So until then, I bid you all adieu, au revior, see ya!
