day 2409 – taegeuk practice

third and last scheduled poomsae for all the bc championship competitors. i must admit these seven hours shifts with the extra training is one of the roughest saturdays. all the competitors have improved a lot since the first training, but i’m still feeling uneasy about a few. this was suppose to be the last session, but i think i’ll need to hold one more for my own peace of mind

day 2297 – obligated instructor

img_20200124_1203143340427312071280178.jpgit was critical for me to be at taekwondo even just hanging onto the half a life i had left. i was feeling weak and dizzy while losing my voice but still felt the need to be there to make sure the students who’s getting ready for promotion got the proper stuff down. i stayed as long as i could last and helped the many i saw before i could no longer. at least i went home with the peace of mind that i gave it everything i had and supported my students in ways possible. now i’m just going to pass out early and rest this bronchitis

day 1505 Рphysio revisited

day 1329 – mothering me

day 729 – physio remedy

decided a little blenz remedy was necessary after finishing my morning physio. because of my ankle, didn’t have to do any prescribed exercises but still had to do muscle stim which is always a struggle. physio asked me to get some rays done for my foot and even wrote an interim report to my family doctor in case i skip out on the scans; he knows me far too well. getting realigned and released was important but also gave me some reassurance and peace of mind that i am going to be okay moving forward
