day 2300 – calling my name

the platform and the barbell was taunting me as i walked across. i couldn’t help myself but to stop and try my hands at some cleans today. i didn’t get very far in weight, but i think it was smart for me to stay within a reasonable range. my foot was a little uncomfortable at times just going through some of the motions, but i managed and didn’t do any further damages. step by step i’m testing the limits of my foot and hoping my full return to sports can happen sooner rather than later. being on the disabled list has sucked and staying patient has never been one of my forte

day 1396 – start low

lightening up and still feel difficulty with five sets doesn’t bode well for my psyche. four weeks of disruption from my workout program and all my lifts suffers a tremendous drop. everything must stay within warmup range until i can prove my that recovery is at 50%. i’m trying to stay patient but i’m not very patient at this and it sucks the life out of me until i am fully back. i’m waiting on everything that i have little control over

last day of work for the year. it was a slow morning and time was going by even slower after lunch. everyone in the office are mulling around, waiting for an authoritative one to make announce dismissal. the whole department had a nice year end lunch out at brown’s social house. all i want to do is get off so i can go to the gym and then see my hamberites

day 728 – summer’s day

looking like a typical july summer’s day as i sit under the sun gazing out. this is the best time for tourists to come visit the west coast. glad to see the warm and sunny weather returning to vancity but i am not physically able to enjoy the outdoor activities. i am hoping and expecting to return to my regular activities soon and is eagerly awaiting the clearance to resume all that planned

day 486 – getting rays

image

waking up early on a saturday morning for some rays. so glad the wait wasn’t long, was in and out within fifteen minutes. i personally rather get the results after my dodgeball playoffs are over cause i am going to be playing regardless of the outcome. under such circumstance, no pan-am competition is probably a good thing for my beaten body anyways. i don’t know if these results matter that much knowing i have to take further tests

day 310 – tofu flower

image

not having taekwondo today and the past week, made me realize how taekwondo has been such a big part of my life. dying to get back out there in the ring, on the court and at the gym. in the meantime all i can do is wish, watch, rest and eat. had the sudden urge to eat tofu dessert after eating dinner

day 232 – and so it’s spring

image

calendar says its officially the beginning of spring season and guess where i wnat to be spending a lot of time at the next couple months. that’s right, once my tennis season kicks off, the hard court will be my home away from home. in the mean time i have to hold off and focus more on practicing for nationals
