day 1915 – hockey is back

it’s good to be back at the rink after missing the past few hockey games due to overlapping schedule. i was afraid i’d be slow coming out of the gate but i held up and even registered an assist. the scoresheet isn’t really an accurate representation of the high scoring game. it was a fun game but man i’m tired from invigilating a blackbelt test that went wrong in far too many ways. being put in the spot to do something i haven’t practiced in three years isn’t exactly cool. good thing i managed to do it and come out unscathed

day 1661 Рgstrings revamped 

four months is a long time to go without having played a dodgeball game. my thumb is heavily taped up and ready to get this season underway. as expected, i was rusty with my throwing, catching and timing. i’m in no position to complain because just being on the court with my teammates and friends is a luxury i haven’t had in far too long. i never take being able to walk on and off the court unscathed for granted. i know that with play, slowly but surely i’ll work my way back into my game form

day 915 – stacking it up

image
having a little faith in my ability and putting it to the test on unpadded surface. stacking up to seven plates on this night and successfully making it to the top unscathed. first attempt and first success is always deserving of a victory pose and casual step off. the first jump is always the hardest not because of the physical hurdle, but the mental one. not bad when i’m still nursing those messed up shins, but that hardly stops me much. i’ll be aiming higher next time and each time after that
