day 2206 – civil war bbq

by the time i showed up at the civil war barbecue, my window had closed and i couldn’t eat any food there. i only made an appearance but couldn’t stay out late because softball playoff first pitch is at 8am tomorrow morning. my neck and back is especially rough in the mornings so i needed to wake up extra early to give myself time to stretch and roll. i also preferred not to feed mosquitoes after what i’ve just gone through with the infections and antibiotics

day 2200 – morning nash

probably shouldn’t be working out doing the things i did, but i’m stubborn about it and it was worth trying. i took it down a notch for the cleans but even then it was giving my back problems. at that point, i was content with meeting the same squat weight as last week. this will be a weird week because my olympic lifting is temporarily switched thursday to give my back extra two days. was also suppose to have softball practice in the afternoon but got rained out. instead, i joined my family for dimsum, something my stomach is not too crazy about

day 2183 – smash nash

my friend joined me for workout because she wanted to check out this location. she also wanted to do what i do because she wanted my hops; that in itself is a big compliment. i needed to get back on track with my strength lifts and stay consistent. my cleans felt better than last time just by staying concentrated the moment the bar leaves the ground to the time my shoulders catch it. my squats felt good and stepped it up by five pounds as my program was written up. i recorded both those lifts so i could get them reviewed by my coach

day 2178 – flightclub birthday

a night at the facilities to celebrate flightclub coachs birthday. in the short span i’ve spent tricking, i’ve met a lot of new people within the community. i arrived late to the party due to another long teaching shift. we spent the night playing board games, karaoke, eating, chatting and of course flipping. there was no shortage of food and cake from the potluck. i stayed past midnight but not until the very end since i need to be up early for walk with the dragon the next morning

day 2171 – late comer

i arrived extremely late for civil war and it was almost like a gear up speed test to get onto the ice in time for the second shift. i was close to not going to hockey at all because i had been tied up with taekwondo, tired from an extra long shift of teaching and just tired in general. somehow, i got convinced and pressured to show up; i guess better late than never. i had to book it home after our ice time because i’m expecting to wake up at 6am tomorrow

day 2167 – spiderman far from home

it was a very good day. i had good snatches and strong paused squats before catching spiderman far from home with friends. i redeemed myself from last week’s poor showing by working up to two kilograms shy of my personal snatch record. also feels good to add five pounds to my paused squats. i walked into the cinema feeling great and perhaps watched my favourite spiderman movie of all time. i thought his newest suit is the best looking ever and wished that i could have waited before buying mine. this one is probably one that i would rewatch once it’s made available for streaming

day 2164 – triad locker

i played pretty horrible game of civil war, but still had fun off the ice. all the fun horsing around in the locker room making jokes, discussing pick up draft, chucking tape balls and locking out people. the squirtle squad locker room is never a dull moment. i felt like i at least had my legs under me second game back, but playing centre and forechecking in an olympic-sized rink will do it
