day 1931 – hop on hop off

signed up for the big big bus where we have the flexibility to hop on and off the bus whenever we come across any attractions we wanted to see. we hopped on three different routes to go around downtown, chinatown, little india and orchard road. from this bus tour, i saw so many superb architecture and design. these busses saved us a lot of walking and definitely saved my knee from collapsing

day 937 – pistol unlocked

image

quads were feeling so jelly i could’ve sworn i wouldn’t be able to do any physio exercises this morning. kin being his own self, urged me to get things done. he, who introduced pistols in my life, has been egging me on to get it down for the past year. my dominant side got it within the first month but severe imbalances made my weak side impossible. kin demanded it again today and i hastily tried, not expecting to come close just like my past nine hundred failed attempts. lo and behold, i went all the way down and all the way up and before i knew it, i had just completed my first ever pistol squat on what i call my broken left. this is a significant milestone because it’s something i’ve been working towards for so long. it’s truly a testament to prove that hardwork, belief and determination really does pay off. thank you for pushing me and never settling for less

day 905 – my setup

after the first round, i felt like i was going to die and making it out of the gym alive was questionable. i thought to myself that stopping after round one would be a huge letdown and wouldn’t be a good representation of what i am truly capable of. i kept chugging on one exercise to the next, hoping to at least finish with a respectable amount before i call it quits. i am truly amazed at what i accomplished today. not only did i finish all rounds of all exercises, but i am able to walk out of this gym feeling good about what i willed myself to do. i would say my first go of my modified workout went well. i’m totally okay with having sore legs and not being able to walk tomorrow
