day 2120 – flips and flops

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.

day 2119 – ankles ultrasound

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

day 2118 – more squats

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

day 2117 – vacation swap

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

day 2116 – minoru park

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

day 2115 – housewarmers

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

day 2114 – on the minute

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
