#43 Chillax

I like chill weekends. There’s no need to keep it busy or productive, but it’s just a weekend that I’m really enjoying. After last weekend’s NAGVA stint, a nice uneventful weekend is really something I’m enjoying. Next weekend, it will be a bit busy once again since I’ll head up to Chicago to exercise my right to participate in the Philippine elections. I can also play some volleyball with friends and hoping to meet new ones. 

It’s a bit strange because yesterday, I was thinking of living life alone and just being sad about it. But, today, I do not feel that at all. Life is life and it’s what we make the most out of it. There’s no time for what ifs, but we just have time for what’s tangible and what’s now. So, I’m trying to put myself in the mindset of enjoying life as it is. 

I don’t know if I blogged about it but my right knee has been acting up already as well. The pain started when I began pushing myself to hit my back squat goal of 220#. I’m at 205 right now, but the pain is just something I need to be wary about. I’ve traded back squats to goblet squats. It helps me maintain good form, but I cannot get to heavier loads. Or maybe I just need some volleyball rest. :-) Not gonna happen I think.

    1. I had it checked before, but maybe it’s time for a 2nd opinion. I think I need to have a PT or a specialist see it this time. I’m just afraid they’ll tell me to stop playing volleyball. LOL!
