day 333 – hot summer day

image

a green tea frappuccino to quench my thirst on a hot summer day filled with taekwondo. vanquishing the last of my five-hour weekend that is coming to an end just as it started. definitely need more down time before i begin another week of neverending work and practice. work hard play hard doesn’t apply when theres no time leftover for play. only a matter of time before my i hit the wall from this inhumane schedule

day 329 – long days

image

where has the time gone and why is it going so fast?? so busy these days there’s not enough time in a day to eat or sleep and it feels like i barely see my family anymore. my body and soul is so weary and can’t go on with this schedule for much longer. when will this end so i can have my break

day 323 – a night i wish i never had

image

as if my day wasn’t as unflattering enough, it continues into the night. just as i thought i could go home and wait for the arrival of friday, things get even worse. my parents and i just can’t seem to see eye to eye recently and it’s making me very frustrated. i am dealing with way too much at the moment to correct what’s been said and done. the only two things i want to do is go to the gym and let out my steam and sit in darkness to get some time alone so i don’t explode on anyone else

day 300 – deja vu

image

just as i thought my knee has turned the corner and fitted back in its groove, it pops back out of place. completely abused by my physio’s physical manipulation while he forcefully pushes it back into place. him at his best continually pushing my pain tolerance. restrictions order in effect that physical activity is not permitted and permission of activities must be granted. it’s also my 300th day post to date

day 297 – knee crapped out

image

once again, back again to find out what’s wrong with my leg. started feeling random discomfort last night which soon turned to numbness and eventually to immobility. little did i know i went through last night’s class running, kicking and jumping with a dislodged knee cap. the time when I turn to physio to rescue my body. he has given me strict orders to stay off it for next two days with no activities and continue to ice regularly until he sees me again

day 213 – competition day

image

bc champs rushed upon me faster than one could imagine. just wished that i could have had more practice time but untimely injuries really cost me. imagining even one week ago i was still unable to stand on one leg, i have to accept that this would be nothing but an uphill climb. yet i was still expected to win, so much pressure and expectation. i didn’t step up like i should have and i feel like i failed everyone
