Catching Up!

Catching Up!

16 Jan shonakamori 2 Comments »

Last week was fairly eventful for week me.  First of all, I got through another hard week of training in the gym.  Most of the emphasis was placed on numbers and getting my endurance up.  As an athlete, this is one of the most difficult times because you’re dealing with a lot of physical stress and pain. Thankfully I’m done!  Starting next week, my focus will be on less numbers but higher quality.  This will definitely help take some of the physical load off of my body and help me recover while I strengthen my mental side.

The exciting outside of the gym, was I reconnected with a friend that I haven’t seen in about 15 years!  We go way back to elementary school but lost touch when my friend had to move away after the 5th grade.  Thank goodness for Facebook though!  We randomly reconnected recently and was able to catch up with all that’s happened in the last 15 years!  When you think about it, that’s a pretty long blank so obviously that was pretty exciting for the both of us!

Another exciting thing this week was my old teammate, Dylan, decided to visit the bay area for the weekend.  It’s always fun hanging out with old teammates and hearing about all that’s new in their lives.  It’s great because I get a glimpse of what it’s like to be out working or getting a graduate degree because most of my old teammates from college are no longer gymnasts.  Anyway, Dylan is currently going to medical school and will eventually be saving thousands of lives.  With all the cool things that my old teammates are doing right now, I really can’t wait to see where we all end up in a couple of years!
