day 2510 – starbucks vibe

the starbucks addiction that i’ve managed to rip off is creeping back in. i really needed my caffeine fix this morning since my friend dropped by for an early lift. i wasn’t planning to do any exercise so my finger could have a break, but watching them made me want to do things too. i woke up far too sore in my lower back to do any more lower body work. i stuck with lighter upper body lifts like overhead press, skullcrushers and delt raises. still got a pretty decent workout in before i did some back end work

day 2499 – pixel nation

morning lift is how i normally start each day since covid. it’s pixel nation with generations two, three and four lined up in my garage gym. today is considered my push pull day with my two main lifts being bench and row. working on my weakest of the four big lifts, the bench press, and it’s good i have a spotter. i need to learn to keep pushing and not change my form even when the weight feels heavy

day 922 – cognitive stimulant

found today’s morning session a tough one and it wasn’t even physically demanding at all. i dragged my sleepy butt out the door but i was just not mentally there to perform. i found myself being a whiner more than a doer and that’s not what i should be doing. my mind and body would’ve put caffeine to good use if only i made a pit stop. after my energy level went back to functional nornalities, i made up for the lacklustre morning session with an afternoon one

day 542 – bring it on

i am so excited to be breaking in my blue flyknits at the gym because i am slowly trying to retire my pink free runs which have been through thick and thin. back at it bright and early this morning, even a sore throat and cough can’t keep me out from a saturday morning workout. i think i will feel more energized after sweating it out and getting some blood pumping again

day 402 – morning session

got out bright and early to fit hitting prior to a super long and busy day and also beat out others for the courts. these confederation courts are so popular and fill up fast during prime time. my knee gave me little trouble for the most part during the play, but that’s also due to my numerous tape jobs and braces that helps me┬ákeep things intact. i’d go the distance to make sure i get to play what i love
