day 2114 – on the minute

so apparently there’s an apex pre-vacation special that no one’s told me about. anyone wishing to go on vacation would have to get through special grueling workouts leading up to it. today i experienced it with twenty on the minute snatches, a hundred kettle bell squats, then finish off with pullups and leg levers. i was already weak and achy after being bed ridden, but i thoroughly couldn’t feel my body by the end of the session. my body aches in so many ways i do not expect to move well tomorrow. i guess i have to earn my vacation

day 1990 – kettle bell model

bought a kettle bell off my colleague because he’s currently purging. having one accessible wouldn’t be a bad idea since i am suppose do shoulder rehab. with it at home, i would have no excuse not to. the amount of exercise equipment around me makes my current work space also looks like my play space. at some point, i’ll probably need to do a purge myself so i can keep my space free of clutter

finding my way to the gym on mondays has rarely been a problem. it’s kind of like a remote control that has me dialled in for some good sweat sessions. mondays are generally a very active day for me consisting of gym, training and some type of ball sport. getting my squatting and kettlebell workout in today before i am off to hit some tennis balls. we played some doubles matches king of the court style. i tend to shy away from matches whenever possible

day 892 – new nemesis

i knew the day would come when i would outgrow my pipe and needed to find a harder alternative. for as much as i use my rollers, my body has developed enough immunity to the pipe it no longer serves me justice. i have passed the stages of foam, firm foam, even firmer foam, ridged foam, plastic and pipe in sequential order; let’s get straight to the point and go for metal. found a new effective tool to roll out my frequently overused legs and get it to a functional state

too stressed out lately with all that school work, applications and deadlines coming up in a hurry. getting my stress therapy so i can regroup before i snap and lose my mind. i have come to realize this is one of my happy place where i can be alone in my own little world. so glad i have an outlet because i know this place is where i can get away from the busyness of my hectic life
