day 2528 – term two

round two of taekwondo classes started today and everything went smoothly. there’s more students returning this term so i’ve divided the group to have two small classes simultaneously. i wasn’t as tired or hungry as past weeks by the end of the shift; maybe having an assistant helped a bit. i also had a physio friend needle me in the quad during my short break which is a bonus

day 2387 – raiz-ing

in class working on raiz this week and i feel like it’s a move i can have. after class time, i worked on some cartwheel back and i finally leveled up and started from airtrack into blue. i think i crossed the bridge by being able to do it on my own and get around to my feet. my backside 900 is also coming together and feeling much better than weeks ago. i think i’ll try to throw it into a combo next time. it’d be nice to eventually put all four moves together

day 1323 – class 

it’s hard to get back into it after skipping two weeks in a row. i had no motivation to work on this but the final project deadline is fast approaching. now it’s time to play catch up and make up for the missed work. i went to class and treated it like a work session and had good productivity. lots of work to be done before presentation day, but i at least i’m one step closer to getting back into the groove

day 1288 – cake pop

day 1267 – site plan

day 1210 – rained in

img_20200204_2143104506562242358004752.jpgit’s raining so hard out there so i spent much of my time indoor dealing with and stressing out about my project and lots of scheduling; i’m not leaving the house today until i absolutely have to, in which case i do for class. i have a dull headache, but that’s probably from not enough rest or possibly fighting symptoms of a cold. still, no hockey and no workout for me today is probably the smarter choice for the sake of my head

day 142 – christmas classic nunchucks

image

as a typical christmas special on last week before holidays, spent some class time practicing and fine tuning some nunchucks tricks. smacked myself ample times but now that i got better control of it, find it pretty fun but still painful. now i feel hungry to learn cooler tricks and maybe even double nunchucks
