Yesterday's games turned out to be my longest volleyball playing time, it was an 8-hour digging, spiking and tossing experience. It made my body so sore that right at this very moment, my quadriceps are shouting at me to rest or take a pain medication. One of the reasons why I agreed to the idea of playing a third share of my day was due to a 2-week rest from studies and reviews. It was never easy to pass on a week without playing volleyball. Good thing, I had an opportunity to have fun yesterday.
In the afternoon, I played as an opposite hitter or outside spiker depending on the team's decision and rotation. Unluckily, when I started playing based on the given position, I had some mishits. I think my body was adjusting that time because 2 weeks of no plays or training turned my body out of shape. Good thing, I was able to cope up after 2-3 games.

Although my body was not giving me any permission to move right now, my passion for playing volleyball will never cease. It was not about the sports alone, it was all about my dedication with the sport. It was more of the lessons behind of learning and playing volleyball that opened and will open doors for me and my teammates in the near future.
