day 2205 – sync x-out

i wasn’t pressing to regain confidence in my back tuck after necking it, but i’m happy to say i got it back only nine days since. thinking it’s time to ease myself into the x-out, i pleasantly progressed back onto the floor in just one day. i’m even happier i actually have some moves i can now sync with others. it really does help when i get to do it alongside one of the best. not only does it push me to go for it, it also allows me to study and compare what he’s doing batter and what i can do to get mine better. this is by far the best x-out i’ve ever done on floor

day 2202 – tricking plan

i think i got myself a tricking plan to keep pushing forward. the assignment is simple: each session i must complete the required reps choosing three from the flips and three kicks on the checklist. this is meant to push me to develop and acquire new tricks while maintaining and improving my old tricks. it also forces me to practice the things i don’t necessarily enjoy but should sharpen. i can’t land any new tricks if i don’t spread my eggs in different baskets. i need to diversify my skillset

day 2191 – free friday

the day after making personal records deserves a bit of a rest. i still went to flightclub because i wanted to flip, but taking it easy on the training as my body works to recover. i let my body decide what it can do and didn’t push to do too much on the floor. i still did some x-out practice and ninja landing onto the blue mat. the rest of the evening was a chill one. even though i don’t have much planned, i was just glad to get the bc day long weekend started

day 2148 – first renderings

a look back at my first marketing rendering i did for the kits collection brochure. a lot of new learnings happened during my first crack at sketchup and vray plugins. i like that i’ll have a lot more freedom to explore sketchup and vray as a whole while creating branding for my own work. i see this also as an opportunity to improve the many skills i’ve longed for

day 2120 – flips and flops

packing could wait for until i was done my flips. i was adamant on going to flightclub tonight because it’s the last one before my long trip. i had both my ankles taped just to air on the safe side. my back tucks felt strong today. pretty happy i landed all my back tucks with shoes and no spot, meaning now i have a higher chance of doing some while i’m in other countries. it’ll still feel very different on harder surfaces, but i’m think still willing to try. i hope that stays true when time comes

day 2026 – open practice

squirtle and fishsticks merge to hold an open practice so both teams can get ready for their respective game twos. also a good time to run through defensive drills to since i’m put on defense next friday. for some odd reason, my shin pad and skate tongue was causing a havoc for my left foot. lots of ice this weekend so i’m glad there’s no powerskating during this long weekend

day 2016 – spotted progress

a really happy moment tonight when i went for it and did a some spotted roundoff backtuck from the floor to blue. since my roundoff snap down was feeling pretty strong during overtime practice, i asked to go for it. i then went on to do one last one, unspotted. i didn’t land it, but i was told it was the biggest step because i just diminished a lot of the fear and uncertainty that it came with. i’ll be the first to say it was scary, but unlike all the previous times i tried something for the first time, i didn’t allow myself to overthink and just went hard. just good to see another progression towards what i’ve always wanted
