The Grind

08 Oct shonakamori No Comments »

I’ve been a pretty boring person lately.  My days have been fairly mundane and not much stands out outside from my normal training and my part-time jobs.  However, they say that the daily grind is what gets you to the next step.  Having a consistent schedule has allowed me to make a ton of progress both in and out of the gym. A lot of this has to do with having the time to simply train and not worry about having to prepare for a competition.  I’m definitely using this time wisely in order to get stronger, but also backing off when necessary to avoid injuries (gotta remember my body is getting older!).

On an unrelated note, the gym community is still dealing with the shock of losing UC Berkeley’s gymnastics programs (both women and men).  Stickitmedia writes a great article about this situation.  I don’t know if there’s much that can be done now that the decision has been made but it looks like the five teams that were eliminated from Cal athletics is holding a rally tomorrow (Oct 9th) at 9:30 am at UC Berkeley’s baseball field.  They’re hoping that with enough support, they can overturn this decision.  I’m not sure if I can make it myself but for anyone that is in the area, I urge you to go and be a part of the rally.

Here’s an article with some information about the rally tomorrow.  Good luck to the Bears tomorrow!
