day 2147 – back at flips

ever since i got back from my europe trip, my body has been experiencing nonstop and soreness. soreness from one thing hasn’t left my body and more soreness is added from another activity. i’m still really happy to be training again and seeing the people i’m used to doing flips with. working on arabians after hours because i haven’t landed anything in a long, long time. it’s definitely time to get a head start on some new moves and make better progress

day 2145 – department change

going to work on monday morning with mixed emotions because the switch in position and department is considered a promotion. the fact i’m removed from the department i’ve grown with leaves a sour feeling. also having work with someone i need time and space from is rather uncomfortable. still, work must go on and i’ll be professional about it and keep the interaction at a business level. at the end of the day i just need to get my stuff done

day 2011 – wall flip

my flips were feeling strong in class and post class training. my back tucks have been coming back to me and lately i’ve been able to get solid landings on blue mat by myself. i was curious about the wall flips so i asked to learn it to which one of the coach graciously took me through the steps. they were really cool once i started going through the whole motion with a spot. although in the end i hurt my knee on one of the awkward landing, i don’t regret having asked to learn it. since i didn’t know the extent of my injury, i did have to pull out of my hockey game later that night

day 1720 – wings night

my first full game slotted at defense and it was nerve-wracking but lots of fun. i wasn’t confident with my backward skating and defensive positioning so i was worried i’d let the team down. i trusted that i had decent hockey iq so i was in position most of the time and lucky to have my d-partner when i wasn’t. i must admit it was quite fun to play on the back end; i wouldn’t mind playing there once in a while just to get a different perspective of the game and learn something new. the squad went crazy after the game and ordered platters of eighty wings and nachos

day 1056 – softball action

i am not used to the inactive and idle nights now that i have an extended break before the next season. i took the field tonight for my first ever organized softball game. i have never played softball before but i caught on quickly and made several nice plays. it was a fun night; i enjoyed the casual night of throwing balls and the team spirit that comes with . it’s a sign i miss being on a team and maybe should have joined a league for the summer

day 921 – tyro

no matter at what stage in life in any practice, everyone is still learning or working to master something. learning from a guy who’s really nice in offering to teach me new moves. i had tons of fun trying to learn these new skills and hopefully i wasn’t too disappointing. i thought my coordination was pretty good, but after tonight, i know even more heightened hand eye and full body coordination will make it come easier. it’s not going to come overnight, but i do believe it’s┬ácoming

day 902 – blackberry

thought i would get away from my regular flavours and try some new flavours this time. blackberry was a bad choice, i didn’t expect it to taste horrible but i guess i didn’t know what to expect. i hope the other flavours in this batch taste better. feeling strange today, almost a little down for no particular reason, i skipped out on my original evening plans and just went to the gym instead
