    rest, rest and more rest...and then theres school. Like today i went to play badminton and what happened i kinda pulled a Lin Dan and dived on/off the court even though the shuttle went out...so now i am going to be resting my knees for the next few days before i play again. Next week however im also going to start working out at school so yeah ill be doing that on non badminton days as well.

    I play badminton on non-badminton days. I know that doesn't make sense but that's what I do, seriously. :D

    I wish I could do this too. I'm just so busy with work though. I would love to play badminton 3/4 hours a day everyday. Not that I'm good at it like most of the people on this forum, just that I find it fun :eek:
    This last week is the most I have played in a week in the last few years. I had six sessions, each ranging from 2 to 3 hours - it was a really great week :D

    To go back to the topic - on non-badminton days I just study and work. There's TV too.......

    Wow. I read.. and read.. and read. Lol. The only thing that forces me to stop reading in bed at night is the thought of a badminton session the next day. Wouldn't want to lose energy now, would I? :rolleyes:

    Work out at the gym.

    Be a good student, attend school. Spend my time in school day dreaming. Shucks, I study on my own and right before exams.. the many months in school just waste away. :p

    Just a question: What about your spouses(if you have one)? Don't they complain about your constant badmintoning? Don't tell me you managed to find one that loves badminton as much as you do?:eek: Or you managed to 'convert' them??

    Non-badminton days? Too many of those these days - unless you count browsing through badmintonforum :)

    I play badminton tuesday, thursday and sunday (3-4 hours per day)....

    When i'm not working during the weekdays, my spare time is taken up by watching some tv (all 3 CSI, numb3rs, without a trace, everybody hates chris and smallville and anime - naruto, bleach, yakitate), managing my two yahoo fantasy hockey teams, managing my yahoo nba fantasy team, and playing xbox games.
