day 644 – closing in

image

getting closer to competition means more cramming to be done. while that needs to be done, i still must be really cautious cause my groin has still has yet to heal, which exemplifies how badly i had pulled it two months back. hoping with a little help from my friend ben, it will not affect my left sidekick too much. this is usually the time i start to feel the urgency and my stress level is soaring exponentially

day 582 – suit up

image

i am still feeling the soreness of after effects of exercises earlier this week. resting my overused muscles and taking it as easy as i could with lots of stretching and pipe rolling. i can’t really do much with a sore posterior so let’s hope tomorrow’s lone practice will do wonders and get me ready for provincials. in the meantime. i am trying on my poomsae uniform and still debating if i want to pull it out for this weekend

day 465 – poomsae uniform

image

yes its another uniform and new belt, but this one is special unlike all my others. extremely happy i finally got  my official mooto poomsae uniform and a proper thick belt to go along. now that i have full ownership of this, it makes me want to train harder and set higher goals to get to the form that i want and make sure i am deserving of the blue pants. there’s nothing better than that satisfying feeling of achieving things after putting in long hours and working hard to attaining the end result. wearing this should be a privilege, and so need to own up and live up to it

 

day 450 – atop the podium

image

standing on top of the podium amongst that company meant much more than just winning because it felt extra awesome knowing i am starting to round into my form after months and months of continuous struggles with some severe injuries. still far from where i want to be but i will seek ways to do what i can to get to where i want. through this whole process i learned to deal with the unexpected, work with what i had and make the best out of the condition i was given. can’t say it wasn’t a long and difficult road back but hardwork and patience of rehab does pay off. there were also moments of doubts where i thought it was the end but i am glad i didn’t let that happen otherwise i wouldn’t be standing atop the podium. beating some blue pants is a telling tale and a sweet comeback. can’t wait to get mine. it’s good to be back
