day 1992 – hockey split

splitting time between powerskating in the morning and squirtle game in the evening. i probably should have been wise enough to take it off to rest up my sprained ankle and wrist; but who am i kidding? for as long as i can tape it up, my sports must go on. i find powerskating helpful and hope it translates in my game. i didn’t have the best of games because the opposing players coming down my wing were pretty quick and skilled

hustling 2019

2019.jpg

2018 was demanding for it was intertwined with many accomplishments and disappointments that brought forth many mixed emotions. i can’t deny i had stretched myself too thin more times than i’d like, and the year had flown by before i knew it. i was overloaded at work where i experienced many influxes of workload; but through that, i had earned my stripes and established myself as a lead. outside of work, my play was also action-packed. i took a step back from taekwondo, but have the intention to step back in once my tricks and flips are ready. i wouldn’t say i had a particularly healthy year; not having escaped the injuries – this time being my shoulder. i lost sight of my fitness at times, but still kept it within reason. with all the successes and setbacks of the past twelve months, i had a lot of take backs knowing i had grown and proved that i could handle myself in uncomfortable situations. looking ahead, 2019 will be a year of hustle where i’ll be chasing some pretty ambitious goals i had set for myself. again, i expect myself to continue grinding and hustling for everything i’ve always wanted. i’m committed to investing the next three hundred and sixty five days to become the best version of myself

i experienced the best and worst of days in 2018, but nothing i couldn’t overcome. the darkest moments stung and the brightest moments shone, but above all, i managed to stay afloat. as 2018 departs, i’m looking ahead and expecting a lot out of myself in 2019

day 1972 – stick and pucking

winter break and off days are the best time to sleep in and catch up on what i’ve lacked all year round. it’s also a good time to put in some extra practice at the stick and puck sessions i wouldn’t otherwise have been able to make. getting a free pass to christmas eve afternoon stick and puck session to work on some shots, pivots and stick handling sounded like a good choice

day 1911 – dodgeball night

humpdays after work, as usual, consists of flipping and kicking, then rushing off to dodge some balls with our balls your face. the first weeks of the season has been focusing on the team chemistry since there’s new faces on the team. we’ll get through the kinks in the meat of the season and get it playoff ready. part of the fun of vdl isn’t so much about dodgeball balls, but seeing the familiar faces

day 1875 – treadmill intervals

spent my off day from flipping for a rare cardio moment because i simply can’t find a way to appreciate it. i don’t think i’ve been on a treadmill for more than five minutes since i last did the sunrun. by the end of it, i was dropping with sweat. my lower body is so taxed from my regular activities i need not to do more leg work even more on my off days. the rest of the time was for core, stretching and rolling

day 1803 – battle of chicks


the game of the year is a sunday matinee game. this season i’m on the jabba lineup instead of the chicks, though i will always see myself born and bred chicks. it was a super fun game between the controlled rivalry. this will be my third hockey game within twenty four hours and i may not have played if it wasn’t for the game of the year. my quads were absolutely fatigued when i woke up this morning after two game night. all i want to do is stay in my compression pants and not move

day 1802 – drink the pink


its an activities overload kind of day and there wasn’t much of a meal at all. lunch was banana pancakes, pregame was banana pancakes, between games was snack wrap and post game was e-noodle and ice cream. my legs gave were long dead my jdp game was over but still must play my heart out for civil war. i ended up scoring the prettiest goal of my life – stole the puck off a forecheck and deked out the goalie to roof it. too bad there was no go pro present to record the epic goal. there’s still so much i need to clean up in my game, but i’m happy i played my heart out today and make a statement. it’s extra sweet for all the criticism i took last week
