day 771 – tennis fever

image

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 664 – dusty rackets

image

shaking off the dusty rackets and bringing my rusty self to burnaby courts this evening. it’s been way too long since i last hit tennis balls hence it took so long to get some of the feeling back, but still far from the level of play it used to be. this is only the start of my tennis season, hoping this summer will be a good one full of hardcourt, squeaky shoes and whacking green balls
