day 2174 – squinty park

a lifting session at apex before a softball double header. despite my back and neck not feeling normal, i still felt strong on front squats and lighter muscle snatches. not a fan of squint lake park because there’s so many mosquitoes around. even though i had bug spray on, i still go bit in the leg. hopefully i get to the bottom of this back and neck issue that’s causing so much discomfort becuade i’d hate to go through another week with so much unexplained back pain

day 2173 – quote board

starting monday morning off with a new motivation quote hopefully to set my week off right. both my managers are back from vacation, so things should pick up pretty quickly. since i didn’t have a restful weekend, i was feeling pretty exhausted from the get go. my head hurt and my back ached. still, i must continue because the new marketing coordinator just started today

day 2172 – federer wimbledon

waking up for a federer wimbledon final at 6am was never in question. although it pains me to see federer lose after pouring his heart out, his play was still amazing, matching his opponent shot for shot. in my heart he won the match because he was unfortunate to lose three tiebreaks. i do however wish i had a chance to take a quick nap before a working a colour belt test. good thing it went smoothly and i can go home and use what’s left of the weekend to rest

day 2171 – late comer

i arrived extremely late for civil war and it was almost like a gear up speed test to get onto the ice in time for the second shift. i was close to not going to hockey at all because i had been tied up with taekwondo and tired from an extra long shift of teaching. somehow, i got convinced and pressured to show up; better late than never. i had to book it home after our ice time because i’m expecting to wake up at 6am tomorrow

day 2170 – road less taken

the tears that rolled uncontrollably down my face was a direct reflection of how i felt inside. as much as i wanted to stop myself in front of people, i simply couldn’t stop the tears from coming down. so much stress has built up around work, taekwondo, people and health that my emotional and physical state are torn inside and outside. all my life i feel i’ve been cheated because i never had the privilege of having the health most people enjoy. still, i push through and train through all my injuries, overcoming one after another. this time is no different, but four months is too long to go through without having a proper diagnosis and method of treatment. no doubt i’m feeling frustrated from the hopelessness

day 2169 – nash cleans

i haven’t stepped into a steve nash for a long time because of so many things: busy schedule, membership issues, vacation, injuries, fatigue and general laziness. the slacking at nash must end and i was determined to crush the workout the moment i walked in. did my usual thursday lifts in order from cleans, backs squats, bench press and rows. being off this workout for some time, i stayed with some conservative weights but definitely should up it next time

day 2168 – spiderman ps4

continuing with the spiderman theme because i was pressured by flightclub to put on my new spiderman ps4 suit. i’m not going to lie i was feeling self conscious because i never had to put on a full suit when no one else around me had one on. i got a spot in since i wasn’t sure how slippery the landing would be. i took some photos and did a couple back flips before i changed out of it. i told myself i wasn’t in spiderman shape yet, but come the end of the thirteen weeks i will be
