Saturday, January 2: My first exercise session of 2010 was a very light one due to a developing illness. I went to see a doctor in the morning and he diagnosed me with a case of the common cold. I didn't feel too bad though, just a slight sore throat and a cough, so I decided to do some light exercise to stay active. I planned on going to the gym after visiting the doctor, but changed my mind and decided to exercise at home. Eight-minute abs plus some side exercises followed by a chest and shoulder workout.
In September 2009, the Chinese government produced a 33-minute documentary about notorious serial rapist Jeong Myeong-seok and the cult he leads, commonly known as JMS. The documentary is important because it shows for the first time footage of Jeong in police custody in China and footage offering a disturbing glimpse into Jeong's lifestyle while a fugitive in China.
Tuesday, December 1: Ninety minutes in the gym to start December's fitness campaign, Chest and triceps followed by 5 km on the treadmill. My ankle, which I injured in August, is now strong enough to jog on and I tested it out today by jogging one of those five kilometers. It felt a little stiff, but it held up fine and I think I need to run on it more to get it back up to 100%. Shoulders, sides, and calves immediately after stepping off the treadmill.
I'm just finishing what would have to be my most enjoyable semester at Keimyung and decided to take photos of my classes to help me remember them, and perhaps for my students to remember me (if they want to). The classes were all so rewarding and full of good memories I can hardly believe it.
The annual Japanese Language Profieciency Test (JLPT) is just a month away and it's time to get serious about studying for it. I've been pretty busy of late, so I haven't studied as much as I'd hoped to these past few weeks.
