packing could wait for until flipping was over. i was adamant on going to flightclub tonight because it’s the last one before my long trip. i had both my ankles taped just to be on the safe side. pretty happy i landed all my backtucks with shoes, meaning now i have a high chance of doing some while i’m other countries.
it’s no surprise this step had to come after hurting it late february and it still severely limits me to this day. i went into downtown radiology to get some ultrasound done, but instead of doing just one, i tampered with the referral notice and added my right ankle scan as well. i’m not really sure what is the answer i would like to hear, but an answer would be great to solve this annoying mystery
part two of the kill her legs pre-vacation special workout consists of fifteen on the minute cleans and a hundred back squats. the cleans in my opinion were super rusty and i never felt like i got in the groove until the second last one. midway through the first set of squats, i thought there’s no way i could do all a hundred at ninety five and i was certain i needed the lower the weight if i wanted to finish. sure enough, i was damn proud of myself for having finished all with the set weight. i learned my lessons last time not to schedule any physical activities the day after. i most certainly earned my vacation through the past two workouts
picking up my parents from the airport this afternoon while getting ready to pack and swap places with them. after dropping them off at home, i had to head out to another taekwondo blackbelt test. the only difference is this time i’ll also be taking my pretest. i never once thought i would be going for another degree. this was a very late decision that i was ambushed with cause i didn’t receive the study guide until friday night
i took full advantage of a saturday off taekwondo by doing things i wouldn’t otherwise have the time for. i first took a trek out to a spa and had an acupressure massage. on my way home, i stopped at the supermarket to grab some vacation snacks and a quick bite. then, i met up with a few flightclubers for the highly anticipated maiko matcha float and that didn’t disappoint. after that, we camped out at minoru park where i was suppose to study for tomorrow’s pretest and flip or play only during my breaks, but it turns out i didn’t get through a single page in my study guide. instead, we spent a couple hours filming tricks as well as teaching them how to toss a frisbee disc. i’m pretty happy with the footage i got from the back flip and feel like it’s improved a little
a house warmer that started off normal with takeout chinese dinner, usual cup games, and board games; my team lost in flip cup but we whooped butts as undefeated champs in beer pong. then ended with pullup and arm wrestling challenges. i’m surprised i faired well taking some by surprise and putting up a fight for ones i didn’t think i’d stand a chance. i can be confident in my right, but the same cannot be said for my left arm as there’s a big discrepancy over the years
so apparently there’s an apex pre-vacation special that no one’s told me about. anyone wishing to go on vacation would have to get through special grueling workouts leading up to it. today i experienced it with twenty on the minute snatches, a hundred kettle bell squats, then finish off with pullups and leg levers. i was already weak and achy after being bed ridden, but i thoroughly couldn’t feel my body by the end of the session. my body aches in so many ways i do not expect to move well tomorrow. i guess i have to earn my vacation
