day 2087 – sechelt home

the squirtle squad has arrived at sechelt, the place we’ll call home for the next three days. the twelve of us have this beautiful place all to ourselves thanks to a hookup. we only have enough beds for half of us, but i think sleeping arrangement will be the least of our worries. i’ve never been to sechelt despite it only being a forty minute ferry ride away. consider this a season end team bonder on top of our championship celebration. the weekend ahead will be full of eating, drinking, gaming and a lot of laziness. we brought so much food and alcohol in anticipation of a weekend of hotpot and barbecue

day 1112 – unavailing

image

not sure why getting out of bed was so difficult this morning but from the moment i climbed out of bed this morning, i was already feeling a little off. i started the day later than usual so everything was delayed. trying to get my work done in compressed time but the whole day has been unproductive. couldn’t get work done at home so tried mcdonalds but still not much got done. deadlines are approaching, need to get down to business or else my to do list will keep piling up

day 946 – nothingness

image

did absolutely nothing besides sleep, eat and more sleep. i don’t recall what i ate today but even if i did, it probably had no flavour to it. life is outright boring when i can’t be myself and function like always. time passes by a lot slower when i am not having any fun. i know it’s only been three days, but my body truly believes it’s been rotting for three weeks. i think i am going to try to hit the gym tomorrow regardless, unless i collapse before i make it there

day 796 – slow moving

image

feels like a perfect sunday wasted. the sun is shining for once and all i did was teach in the morning and attend a marcom meeting in the afternoon. opted to skip out on gym as planned and not actively enjoying the rare sunshine we will hardly get in next few months. i hope the lethargic feeling goes away soon cause i can’t afford to be an antisocial couch potato

day 775 – inflexibility

image

it’s that time of the month again, or the start of another training season that begins really soon. stretching for real for the first time for what must have been at least seven weeks to see how much flexibility i have lost. man, it’s not a good sign when my legs and joints are feeling this tight. it won’t be fun but i guess that’s what i pay for with my laziness and procrastination. one way or another, i will need to regain the flexibility back in a matter of days. the sporadic laziness during the so called offseason really doesn’t make my life any easier

day 628 – and so it begins

image

just as i had imagined, competition training gets real immediately after the completion of sun run. despite my body feeling good after the race, something tells me my groin is unhappy since it popped a total of eighteen times today – yes i was counting. i’ll let me physio take care of my groin and whatever other problems that may have arised from running that fundraiser. but the training plan doesn’t change, so here i am starting off with some much needed stretching because four weeks of minimal stretching and laziness has caused my splits to diminish

day 360 – because food is essential

image

probably shouldn’t be stuffing my face again, but i am stuffing my face with some taiwanese food and bubble tea. eating is the way to lazy out cause i felt too lazy to drag my butt to catch the fireworks tonight. need to exercise to balance out that intake and output, but it isn’t happening tonight
