day 835 – twist and twirl

image

had my fair share of leg work today working lots on twists and twirls. slowly but surely things are getting better and looking a whole lot smoother. i am excited because the timing and feeling are definitely coming along and consistency has improved drastically, meaning i am regaining my form again. still a long way to go to get it down nice and compact, but i hope that soon i will be able to land it without hesitation. best of all, my legs and the rest of my body is feeling great even after all that so i am ready to see what physio says tomorrow

resolution series: [twentytwo] mentor

the people i have been surrounded by have played a tremendous role in shaping me for who i am. they provided me with much guidance, endless advice and mentorship that influenced my growth as a human being. i have had many people guiding and pushing me every step of the way, either dragging me back on track whenever i stray away or making sure i don’t slack off when i shouldn’t be. i know for a fact, without the team behind the scenes attending to me when i fall apart, i probably wouldn’t be walking today. they have constantly given me motivations to train harder and train smarter to get better and get stronger. it is through them i learned that i must put in the work and work for what i want in order to continue playing the sports of my life. the coaches and teammates i’ve had the privilege of playing with and learning from also played a significant role. they have taught me the true meaning of teamwork, that we ought to work hard for each other. lots of credit goes to the instructors that inspired me and showed me to way to higher ground. i have come a long way from the beginning of my taekwondo journey, but i won’t stop knowing there’s still a long way to go to get to a level i never imagined i could be at. i am hoping one day i would be looked up upon, to be mentoring and inspiring others to become what they could never have imagined

 

day 474 – lifting

strength isn’t about pushing others down so you can stand on top of them, its using your strength to lift others when time arise. if you are incapable of putting them to use for the right reasons, it doesn’t matter how strong you are physically. and so as i am learning to lift, i am also learning to become stronger to lift others in different ways. working my way up from an empty bar getting proper technique down is the main focus and i know once i have the foundation, the plates will come naturally. it hasn’t been long since i started, but found out i am quite addicted to this already and its something i want to progress with
