day 2286 – baby steps

stepped foot into the gym or any sports facility for the first time since the freak incident last monday. i may seem crazy to many, but as long as i can limp, i wanted to do this. i didn’t do any lower body exercises, and everything i did was done seated or off the foot. i also didn’t use any barbell or any weights that i’m used to. i do see and feel progress but it’s slower than i’d like. i limped in with no expectation and left happy because it felt so good just to be back in any kind of action

day 2223 – sloth day

my flex day consisted of no alarm clock, no schedule and barely any moving. desperately needed this day off after spending many hours working blackbelt test, training for blackbelt test and taking the blackbelt test. the boards i held and the boards i kicked left so many cuts and gashes. basically spent the morning watching a netflix movie and another movie at the theatres in the afternoon. no part of me wants to go back to work tomorrow

day 1754 – movie marathon

i did absolutely nothing today except eat dumplings to go along with my movie marathon. i need days like this when i could sleep in with no alarm clock to wake me up at 6:05, no rush from work to games nor commitments. i even chose not to hit the gym because my body told me it needs the rest it deserves. this year the brand new phenomenon i’ve learnt is occasionally listening to my body instead of my always go go go response. it took me quite a while to grasp this concept

day 1503 – evaluation

vachl evaluation day for us new league players to be placed on teams. we skated through a number of skating and stick handling drills before a scrimmage. it was all pretty standard; was hoping my pregame workout didn’t tire out my legs as much. slightly shaken after a goalie poke check inadvertently speared me in the ribs but two breakaway goals to be happy about. it’s the first time mo decided show up to any of my hockey action; i thought i did fairly well for the most part. a subtle elated feeling to see that he can be there sometimes, even if he was only there for the hockey

day 1158 – court side

i have watched many of their games on television, so stoked to be watching this game on court side. both are amongst my favourite teams, so i wasn’t rooting for either side. seeing curry, thompson and derozan felt like a once in a lifetime opportunity. this is still preseason, but i hope that matchup happens again in the playoffs, rogers arena was jam packed; i also bumped into at least ten people i knew

day 652 – marvel avengers

i was far too busy earlier this month, waited long enough to find some down time to watch avengers age of ultron in theatres. in my opinion the start was a bit slow and uneventful, but got better once the action hit. despite many people telling┬áme it was only satisfactory and that the first one was better, i still thought it was good. i guess i am a pretty avid marvel fan that just doesn’t mind seeing marvel movies, keep them coming!!

day 260 – marvel

finally putting in a better effort in making time to catch up on social aspect and life in general. i have finally come out of my hermitting shell to see what is going on around nowadays. what have i been missing out of life?? haven’t watched a movie in theatres for quite some time. captain america was definitely up there on my priority list and it didn’t disappoint. it’s gotta be my favourite marvel so far
