day 2244 – increased volume

the newest squat assignment is increased volume with slightly lowered weight. i went in thinking it’d be okay since the weight went down by ten, but turns out to be really tough. i pushed through and finished it but immediately had regrets. my legs were shaking even before i was done my whole workout. i tried to roll, stretch, roll some more and stretch some more to help my case. right off the bat i knew i was in trouble for tomorrow where i have a fully loaded day of flipping, dodgeball then hockey. all i can do is pray because i’m in for a rough ride tomorrow

day 2202 – tricking plan

i think i got myself a tricking plan to keep pushing forward. the assignment is simple: each session i must complete the required reps choosing three from the flips and three kicks on the checklist. this is meant to push me to develop and acquire new tricks while maintaining and improving my old tricks. it also forces me to practice the things i don’t necessarily enjoy but should sharpen. i can’t land any new tricks if i don’t spread my eggs in different baskets. i need to diversify my skillset

day 1687 – book assignment 

feels like school all over again when a book was assigned for home reading. this is a suppose to be a highly recommended book by the boss who bought a few copies to circulate within the office. this is meant to be an educational piece so i’ll need to arrange for reading outside of the sixty hours i already spend working. i haven’t read books like this in years but always willing to allot some time out of my crazy schedule to make myself more successful and i’ll be doing so one page at a time 

day 1281 – classroom

day 1278 – roger surges 

no regrets staying up until 4:45am just so i can witness federer win another australian open. much of the day was spent being a nerd doing my assignment, reading articles i enjoyed. the promotion test went smoothly and nothing particular went wrong, but somehow i’m feeling strangely bad about myself. the feeling of dissatisfaction of not being good enough and unworthiness is expanding in my head. i’m losing faith in myself and losing grip on what i want to achieve. hopefully that changes when i wake up tomorrow for a fresh start to the week

day 1270 – homeworking

day 1267 – site plan
