Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

Squat and sashimi

Ok it’s Sunday. Let’s focus on training. Make it count. Tomorrow is Monday and begins another cycle of grind. Early morning drive, traffic jam, meetings, emails, assignments, noises. Got to appreciate the weekends.

Took a 200 mg caffeine pill before lifting. I became a little bit more awake but it didn’t really give me a kick like I wanted to. After years of coffee drinking I’ve become tolerant to caffeine. I wish I’m not.

Did something very rare these days. A new rep PB on squat. With knee discomfort, squatting had been hard for months. Decided to suck it up and take it one rep at a time. Got a new 8RM. Good day. I feel accomplished. The knee sleeves kept the knees warm and helped alleviate the knee pain, I think.


Went out for late lunch and decided to eat at sushi hiro. Other than the usual salmon sashimi and sashimi don, we tried something different this time: maguro tail steak. These five small pieces costed 660 THB after a discount, which is still expensive to me. The regular price was 2,200 THB, which is crazy. Not something I would eat regularly, but it was a nice treat once in a while.
