day 1004 – winding down

image

glad i made it through a crazy long saturday and able to sit and wind down at the end of the day. woke up early and got my day going with a strong morning gym session and ended the day nicely with mellow night out and quality down time. sandwiched in the between was a mediocre afternoon; teaching was draining and training felt pretty unproductive because my hamstrings are feeling miserable

day 1003 – secret ingredients

image

never underestimate the significance of a bubble tea and a fractured finger. a simple chocolate milk tea and roasted milk tea were the secret ingredients that kickstarted it all. the hasty stumble filled my dodgeball roster, and also brought us much closer than just teammates. little did we know i was ever so close to turning down the bubble tea run that very night; that could have rewritten the story in its entirety. i am glad i got roped into getting some diabetic drinks; the fractured finger also helped a little. it’s a combination of sugar, luck, chance and fate that did it all

day 1002 – revisiting jericho

image

by the water hoping i won’t be feeding the flies and mosquitoes. jericho brings back a lot of memories from the studio term that i spent doing a beach redevelopment project. but tonight, my job was to forget about all that and be one with the calmness. times when we can stand ashore to look out across and get a good view of downtown vancouver. i’ll definitely want to be back here again when summer really hits

day 1001 – quick lift

image

decided against playing dodgeball tonight, but didn’t want to feel too useless and couldn’t let my laziness dictate. what better way to treat the soreness than to force my body through a quick light workout. making the most out of my time, working efficiently with little rest so i can maximize that quick hour workout. i am comfortable at the gym and it’s where my heart wants to be even when i am sore all over

day 1000 – big millennial

image

sitting across from me this evening is this fine looking who always makes me feel at ease. we can never get tired spending our down time together going for our lazy walks and finding our random adventures. we both have a very busy schedule, but we make all our time together count. making first appearance on my blog’s milestone 1000th day post is truly special. to be honest, hitting the millenium mark is very self satisfying. it’s been a great ride; let’s keep blogging it together through our various adventures towards many more milestones

day 999 – pineapple league

image

i am excited to get my new jersey even though i wasn’t able to play in the first week of pineapple league. my team represents the great grapefruit, characterized by our cool looking pink jerseys. the first ever summer hat league where all my teammates are randomly drawn. i’m playing with six others that i’ve never teamed with; it’ll be an interesting experience. it’ll be a short but fun season with many twists and slight changes to dodgeball norms

day 998 – under serving

image

some days i feel out of it and today is one of them where i am just really not feeling coaching and training. being at taekwondo made me sad on this day because i am struggling to find the motivation to pick myself up. the competition week is fast approaching and my preparedness is far from being competition ready. this is a big one, but my a-game is nowhere to be found. all i want to do in avoid thinking about it and hope it gets out of my head. i know this can’t continue and i am searching for a fix
