day 1732 – grippy socks

sporting the new free socks won from the nash challenge. came with two high quality grippy socks that feels really comfortable for running. this comes timely since it seems i’ve lost some socks lately and need to restock some socks. played another game on second line but no other word to describe than just plain awkward seeing the ex i don’t want to see. chilling with friends after civil war was enticing, but opting to go home was probably the better option so i can wake up for the sunday morning game

day 1393 – gstringers bonder 

took us long enough to finally have our gstrings season end get together. partying at eastside crafthouse thanks to our spirit award gift certificate. for those of us on the team who are straight, the conversation got really awkward at times and even uncomfortable; it’s never a dull moment with these girls. it’s a long off season but we’ll be returning next season to kick some more butts

day 1130 – hockey practice

the morning started off good gearing up for a practice with teammates before the regular season. i was thrilled to be on ice with gear, sticks and pucks but that was the only bright spot. somethings got in the way but it was a setting i had to keep my composure and pretend nothing was wrong. i spoke my exact feelings and thoughts, but the thorn is way deeper than what i can remove. it was an unsettling feeling that started off sour and ended sour; made it far from an enjoyable rest of the night. i needed a punching bag more than anything and deep down i had the urge to go get one

day 1016 – hammy problems

image

day one at the competition was spent watching the junior division and doing some final preparations, both physically and mentally. after slapping on cream, endless rolling and massages, i am doing some partner stretching on the floor. i will do whatever i can to make my leg kick tomorrow because nationals is my biggest event of the year. the nerves are starting to build up as the day wears on, but i think i have a more stable mindset to better manage the bad wolf inside. of course, talking to mo calms my nerves and puts my thoughts back into place

day 492 – stop drop selfie

image

my interpretation of a constipation face or just a normal reaction from the pain of rolling out knots. i figured the most appropriate response to the stop drop selfie challenge is to do a stop drop and roll selfie, literally. thought this was a pretty good way to end the week by taking awkward pictures of myself foam rolling on the ground after a friday night class. the truth is, i do this quite often

day 116 – what’s the occasion?

was passing by aberdeen centre and saw various perfomances, some of them are very interesting like this group dancing to gangnam style music. not entirely sure what the event is celebrating or promoting for and it certainly wouldn’t be a good location choice to do some homework
