day 2482 – rock message

vancouver city public tennis courts are finally reopened, but i still can’t seem to go out and do what i love doing because the weather hasn’t been cooperating lately. i’ve been urning to get out on the hardcourts and hit some tennis balls. instead, i took a walk the moment it wasn’t wet and rainy. during my stroll in one of vancouver’s biggest nature park, i encountered some random writings but not sure what the message is trying to convey

day 2464 – messed ankle

i was utterly concerned all night thinking i wouldn’t be able to walk like last time. knew more so, i was in despair that a simple hit on my ankle could cause the ganglion on my foot to flare up like such. i had to cancel my apex session in the morning, but still wanted to go forward with the garage lift because two others were banking on me. through the whole workout and the rest of the day, i was super grumpy thinking of all the problems it may have and all the limitations i may have to deal with. this isn’t good leading up to my birthday. even though it was friday where i should’ve earned my week end treat, i didn’t feel deserving of it and was in no mood to enjoy any

day 2451 – skytrain stroll

saturday evening social distancing stroll has become a regular thing when covid is in effect. i’m so glad the weather has been good to us so we could spend time outdoors. i for one would go insane if i was trapped indoors with no activity. we walked one skytrain station and back which turned out to be a lengthy forty five minute walk. we walked at a leisurely pace, but somehow my bad knee was in some discomfort by the end

day 2448 – cambie corridor

i needed some fresh air and this district seemed like a good place to be. maybe i can relate to this place for this is the hood where i did most of my growing. this is the hood where all my highschool, physio, work, and gym used to be. i really like these new ‘heart of vancouver’ bike racks along this corridor. i felt slightly refreshed after a short walk and extra vitamin d

day 2283 – prp treatment

in naturopath clinic to do my first platelet rich plasma treatment. these prp treatments will burn a hole through my wallet, but my foot left me with no other option. it was very neat and very scary at the same time; watching the machine spin and separate my blood into parts and having it put back into me. getting what must have been twenty injections was a painful process. i had both feet done and could barely walk out of the office myself

day 2187 – lunch stroll

i really wasn’t feeling i was in the right place, so i went for a stroll to get some air after lunch. i walked aimlessly outside in the opposite direction because i didn’t want to have any interaction. i still am not back to my old self from the outbreak that i couldn’t prevent. i’m trying my hardest to do so but it’s still too noticeable that i haven’t been carrying myself the same way i normally do. i may need to take a day off as a way to recoup

day 1796 Рoh canada 

img_20200130_2217128590155432317885505.jpga different canada day unlike any previous years where i had to host a taekwondo competition. this is the most laid back canada day i can remember, spent it helping my parents with some cleaning up and recycling old junk. the nagging headaches is really not going away, and making me feel uninterested even in my most favourite things. the long weekend continues with a nice dinner out at kishimoto before checking out a free concert. even though it was rainy and slightly cold, the swanguard stadium festivities and fireworks turned out well

day 1118 – fell off

img_20200130_2039418665489946250221874.jpgafter having fended off my fries craving for a week, i fell off the tracks and finally gave in. didn’t make up any sleep last night after a crazy busy weekend. i felt really tired in the afternoon but strangely couldn’t fall asleep. when i finally did, i only managed eight minutes of napping. i was suppose to go to a house party but didn’t feel like i deserved to so just went for a walk instead. maybe the built up mental and physical fatigue led me to make this horrible decision. i don’t know what went into me, but i just can’t let myself make these poor decisions again

day 1029 – takoyaki

everyone said that takoyaki is a must once i am in japan. to be honest, i can’t be the judge to compare them to vancouver’s because i don’t normally eat takoyaki anyways. beyond eating and shopping, i also walked a lot around downtown osaka and did some typical tourist things. i can’t walk anymore for my ankles are overworked and a tad swollen

day 992 – stuffy day

today is one of those hot and humid spring days that makes me think spring just ended and summer is well on its way. the temperature peaked at 26 during mid day; i was already sweating as i was standing inside the gym about to begin my warm up. i am ready to get my tan started earlier than last year. i am looking forward to this summer; there’s so many exciting things waiting ahead this season
