day 809 – sad knee

image

not a good sign when it twists laterally, makes a popping sound and then gives in. what looked like a harmless move wasn’t so harmless, afterall i am dealing with a knee that has a long history. got home in pain and to see it swollen only makes me even more concerned. there’s nothing i can do at this point except ice and rest and hope that it feels much better than it looks. the severity of this remains unseen but i do know for a fact that physio appointment comes earlier than initially planned and that i have a lot of options to weigh in terms of continuing with my plans this week. my kinesiologist never fails to give me the dagger as he forewarned me the possiblity of a ligament tear. i am still leaning towards taking the risks

day 583 – pre comp syndrome

image

at the school the night before competition doing some very last minute cramming. soreness finally easing off and i am finally able to do my full poomsae for the first time in a long time. it might be a little too late because i feel the pre competition crisis taking over. one side of my sidekick is very concerning but i know i need rest so i don’t overdo it. so i will just call it a day and hope that when i wake up tomorrow morning everything will be back to normal

day 559 – what sun run

image

what i was hoping would not happen is happening and i would deny the truth as long as i can. i received the confirmation package that i am registered for the sun run in two months time. been years since i last did the sun run when someone forced me so they could get bonus marks and did not thoroughly enjoy the process. i am not a cardio or running person but i guess it is a challenge i will have to accept. i might as well do some training to prevent humiliating myself

day 213 – competition day

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

this is the all important stamp and seal that makes my university official transcript, official. after a long haul consisting of many mixed emotions and stressful period, i have retrieved and collected the long list of required documents and printed my portfolio, now i am finally ready to send out my package
