Gym (Mis?)Adventures

I consider myself a gym regular. I gym regularly. This would probably be the definition, no? I usually go to the University of Toronto Athletic Centre, but will occasionally gym at home, because my condo has a fairly decent gym (for a condo), or even at Hart House if there is no other option. I’ve only ever been to Goldring once, but wasn’t a huge fan because the lights shine directly into my eyes when I bench. Now, being a gym regular, I consider myself somewhat well-versed in gym etiquette. While normally I don’t experience any issues in the gym, every now and then something stupid happens and I just don’t understand how people can live this way.

Edmond, Why

After a long hiatus, here is a blog post.

We had our first fit test of the 2017-2018 season a couple Thursdays ago at A4A. It was really more of a baseline test, as none of our subsequent tests will resemble it in any way. The point was to give our recruits (and vets) a general idea of where they stand compared to everybody else and to see what they might need to work or focus on.

New Phone

I have a new phone! It has been two years since I changed phones, so it was time for a new one.

I would normally include a picture of said new item, but unfortunately I take pictures using my phone and I can’t take a picture of my new phone with my new phone so you will have to make do with imagining it. It is black and rectangular with rounded corners and has a black cover with a newspaper-themed picture of skyscrapers on the back.

Short Post Update

As anybody who has followed this blog knows, I have largely fallen off the posting bandwagon and only post sporadically with large gaps in between. I took a brief hiatus from posting as it was getting to be a chore, but it’s become enjoyable again so I may return to posting. It will probably not be regular and I mayn’t post as much as I’d like, but I’ll still probably post more often than I have been in the last few months.

Adrian, Edmond, and Sangah had requested that I inform them when I post, and so I would like to acknowledge these three people as fans. It’s nice to hear that people like my posts and that fact motivates me to write more, so thanks for the encouragement!

P.S. Adrian told me he expected a post yesterday after practice and I told him that wasn’t going to happen. That statement was accurate.

A New Kind of Run

Today was originally scheduled to be the last team run of the off-season. I was a little sad, not because it was the last run, but because we didn’t have the day off because man, I really wanted to sleep in for Easter. While it was an “optional” practice, it was also “highly recommended” and I would’ve felt bad sleeping while the rest of the team was at practice.

Fortunately! Through a joint effort, Gavin was persuaded to allow us to replace the run with a different kind of activity: ultimate frisbee!

Final Fit Test 2017

My blogging has fallen shamelessly off the bandwagon and was stressing me out because I felt pressured to post when I was feeling lazy so I have decided to only post sporadically when I feel like it and thus not have to feel guilty about neglecting it.

I felt like today warranted a post and I’m going to write it right away so I don’t procrastinate and then forget about it and then never ending up actually posting it.

Today we had our final off-season fit test before the water season starts!
