It's been a crazy weekend of timetrial to try and stay in the national team and i'm filled with so many mixed emotions im not sure where to begin.

Well, the last time i did a good timetrial was in 2007 with toshko just before june ended. I hit my best time of 4.02 for 1000m and 1.50 for 500m. And the feeling of hitting those timings at 18, there are no words that come close to describe it. Okay, its not the fastest ever done by a singaporean, but for me it meant more than anything else in this world.

And then there was IB and army, surgery on my tailbone, seacc08,worldchamps09,acc09,seacc10,worldcup10 and no asian games. A string of shit after shit after shit.

and then there's shit trainings.

and finally, by some miracle this weekend i hit:
1000: 3.59, 4.04
500:1.54, 1.54, 1.49
200: 41.2, 39.8

I cleared every single distance! with 2 personal best times.

I am so grateful for this and even more grateful that i can do this when coach is here. it is all his hard work and without him, i'd still be floundering somewhere trying to get back the form i lost. I am grateful for everything that has happened to me this year and i wouldnt do anything to have it any other way.

I am truly blessed. and i need to say

thank you

Let your indulgence set me free!

Taking a break from shakespeare right now. Got a 1k assignment to write up on the tempest and i'll get started on that in just abit :P
You know paddling at kallang does have its benefits? I didnt need to visit a river to do the river habitat survey for Geog because i can safely say i know the whole kallang river by heart! Also managed to finish microbes ppt yesterday night when i decided to burn the midnight oil. My group decided that HFMD was a great idea and i spent the whole night trying to make my part entertaining with weird videos and stuff. will probably look for more before the next meeting.

Also had a pretrial timetrial yesterday. Used the new rotafix seat and i think i really like it? Its like the same shape as the rotating seat but is fixed so its good for my bones that are already dead. Hit 4.10 for 1000m and 40.40 for the 200. Still needs some fine tuning in both distances and i need to learn to relax abit more during the 1000.

I'm really looking forward to racing next year. Guys will have a really strong team :)

ok back to work....

Happy feet which aren't happy

Once again my feet end up in this sorry state. Doubt i'll be paddling till it heals up..

On a side note, its almost 1 month remaining to my finals and i think i'll start studying on monday. haha i no more excuses and crappy reasons, i must study now!

Oh and the other day my dad decided to wash his new boxster. haha he hasnt washed his own car since his first merc so i think he's happy.

Finally have geog out of the way. It looks 10x better than my EE :D Sadly there's still tons of work piling up and clearing it is taking longer than normal :/

Well, i'll try to finish my lit assignment, econs lecture, lit lecture, geog online assessment and do as much readings as i can today.

On a side note, paddling is getting better! i can feel my legs moving again somewhat? Will be abit more before i have enough speed.
