day 1460 – hot tennis

my daily dosage of sports doesn’t stop even when tired. playing some rusty tennis in mid day heat probably isn’t the smartest choice, but it was spontaneous alternative to a bailed hike. two plus hours out in the heat hitting balls got me pretty dark. i can’t imagine a couple more times and i’ll have enough vitamin d to have some crazy tan lines. got some quiet time in the middle of the day and quality time at night because it just isn’t a sunday without having seen

day 1078 – play ball

keep the activities coming with some court time at gladstone before extra demo rehearsal. i miss the good old days when the gang would go hit for hours every other day. i don’t make it out as much as they do but hoping that changes soon. my legs are gased by the time demo rehearsal came around. my body is definitely physically taxed and i can feel the weariness, but keep them coming

day 771 – tennis fever

the plan for tonight was only to hit for roughly an hour and a half, but ended up going all out for three. so instead of a late dinner like i had initially told my mom, it ended up late night snacking at 10:30pm. started off mellow and hitting lightly, then round two heated up and everyone began ripping the ball like they wanted to take each other’s heads off. felt so good to let my swing loose, but my good knee didn’t feel so good halfway through, hope it will feel better tomorrow after a night of icing with frozen peas

day 757 – love this sport

image

my body is tired and still recovering from the long trek but nothing is going to stop me from enjoying the pleasures of tennis – the love of my life. if the opportunity presents itself, i don’t need a reason to be here playing this sport. my arms felt extra heavy and still feeling rusty but i still had a great time hitting the hardcourt. need more days like this to fill my life with much more tennis

day 750 – court time

image

it’s been much too long since my last hitting session and finally getting some tennis in this evening. i found it extremely hard to get the feeling back in my hands and legs, my shots are getting too flat and rather inconsistent. the next session better not be as far apart as this one, i need to get all my hitting partners to hit up the courts before autumn chases us out

day 402 – morning session

image

got out bright and early to fit hitting prior to a super long and busy day and also beat out others for the courts. these confederation courts are so popular and fill up fast during prime time. my knee gave me little trouble for the most part during the play, but that’s also due to my numerous tape jobs and braces that helps me keep things intact. i’d go the distance to make sure i get to play what i love

day 369 – choco milk

image

drinking chocolate milk like a boss straight from the jug because i can. this is only possible when my parents are not in town. needed to replenish some fluids and recover after a morning tennis session on this hot bc day. talk about exercise and cardio overload this weekend, it just keeps adding on but i am liking it. just trying to enjoy my long weekend while i still can
