day 2208 – x-out tease

little feedback received on my touch down raiz and gainer to even work with or progress into anything because all the commotion was to push selected few to do corks. disappointed i didn’t get to try any spotted, but it is what it is. threw some butterfly twists onto red mat but not much done. so i decided to work on x-out on my own and made much progress before the coach finished with his private lesson and started giving me pointers. by the end, it felt good with the tweaks he suggested. i sense it’s close to getting some target attempts

day 2146 – rusty snatches

second apex workout since returning and i’m still trying really hard to get back to proper snatching. i’ll be the first to admit i’m pretty disappointed in the missed snatches that shouldn’t be missed. when the lifts appear to start out wrong, i give up on it far too early and clearly don’t try hard enough to save them. i was told off for doing so and smartened up after that. at least i made up for the lackluster lifts with some better back squats

day 2126 – duck and waffle

this was suppose to be a super highly rated restaurant that requires months and months of advance booking. the view from the fortieth floor was nice, but aside from that, i personally thought everything was overpriced and overrated. the duck and waffle was minimally okay and i definitely wouldn’t pay eighteen pounds for it. on top of that, their service was one of the worst i’ve ever seen. i’d day i’m dissatisfied with the amount i paid for in return

day 1960 – gaining or losing

trying something new and falling on my face is quite normal. i can’t lie about the disappointment i’ve been facing with my struggles as of late. i feel like i’ve lost the back tuck and aerial, both of which i’ve spent so long working on. the only thing i still have is my front tuck. i feel ashamed that i’m going through this struggle with my flips and tricks and very few people will understand. sports has always come rather easy all my life and my coordination has never been an issue, but for this i always second guess myself and kind of want to give up

day 1907 – scruffed

shadow suffered some scratches all because i made a bad decision when i could have easily backed up. it stings me a lot to see the scruff marks and i definitely will not pull forward next time this comes up again. got home and immediately used wax hoping it would make lessen the damage that i had already put it through. i’m very disappointed in myself for making this ill-advised error

day 1869 – apparatuses

didn’t spend any time at my own desk this morning. i had a good long meeting with the director followed by the bpdt team. constant meetings is very draining so really looking forward to getting off work and onto my way to practice some acrobatic stuff. felt a little tight and lethargic, didn’t really feel good about my back tucks. progress has been really slow, and i’m disappointed to say the least. i’m sure a lot of setbacks as to do with my ongoing shoulder woes

day 1834 – kukkiwon demo

kukkiwon national team visits vancouver again third year in a row. on one hand i’m stoked to watch their demonstration expecting nothing less of spectacular. on the other hand i’m disappointed i won’t be able to participate in their training because my shoulder is still failing me like no other. it hurts not being able to take on this rare training, but i had to be present to satisfy the requirement of being there for my students. either way, the koreans made it spectacular with their spin kicks, multiple kicks and apple breaking
