day 1199 – coaching team

image

the two grandmasters and the coaching team at yet another grandmaster yoon sport poomsae seminar. it’s great opportunity to pick his brain from his wealth of knowledge; no wonder he’s one of the best coach in california state. a good poomsae refresher for me but a bad headache kept my home in the evening, probably from dehydration or something. i feel fatigued and much discomfort so all i can do is lie down and roll out on my pvc

day 1065 – second closet

image

my car trunk has assumed the role of my second closet. not only do i spend a lot of time on the road running from one event to the next, but my gear and equipment has clearly outgrown the allowable space i have in my room. currently, five pairs of shoes, a pair of skates, tennis rackets, pvc pipe and hoodies are some of the things that reside in the back of my car. sooner or later i maybe be looking for an extension to a third closet

day 909 – letup

image

a rare and validated rest day after a crazy action packed monday. my whole body especially my legs are feeling each rep and every move that i did yesterday. i really did go all out and overboard with dodgeball. as crazy as it sounds, i really did attempt to get my exercise in, but my legs just wouldn’t allow. i am urged to take the day off to stretch and roll instead of overtraining and put myself at risk

day 863 – depot run

image

flashback to getting my pipe roller from home depot. i bet the clerk was very suspicious of what this girl is building with pieces of pvc pipe. i go out of my way to doing what i need for maintenance. going to the gym is one of the absolute worst time to forget my phone and that’s exactly what happened today. i felt so lost and naked because i don’t have my headphones and music to get me through the grueling demands. but what needs to be done must be done

day 548 – pipe rolling

image

definitely been making really good use of my pipe ever since i upgraded from my foam. it’s been my best friend and worst enemy since day one but i know process of no pain no gain far too well. everything is so tight from the trainings, practices, normal usage and miscellaneous activities that i went overboard with. the only drawback is my back is shot and there’s nothing the pipe can do anything about because its way too stiff

day 521 – another roller

image

giving up my foam roller because i have no need for it anymore when i have this baby. upgrading from the soft stuff to the hard stuff was a necessary change because it simply wasn’t serving me well anymore. now i can get my stuff done consistently and rely on this to work its magic and stay somewhat unknotted. this pvc pipe should last me a long while before my body gets immune to this and then i’d probably have to look at metal spikes of some sort
