Pic taken yesterday:
For the last few years I’ve kept a tennis racket and some balls in the trunk of my car.
Last few weeks I’ve been hitting a ball against a wall daily, for about 30 minutes.
Gets the heart beating, good exercise for the entire body.
Had my knee damaged and fixed almost 2 years ago, so I’m grateful for the mobility that allows me to chase a fuzzy green ball around.
When I started doing this a few years back I lost a ton of tennis balls, some flew up and over the roof of the building… goodness knows how many balls are up there!
I don’t lose balls anymore, I have more control. Kinda want to play real tennis against another player.
Hitting tennis balls is good for improving hand / eye coordination… I never played tennis or even owned a racket earlier in life, so I guess this is a new skill?
I get bored in gyms, and I do plenty of walking and swimming….. my tennis thing feels more like a game.
My grandmother played tennis into her 70’s, so I’d like to be able to do that.
I’ve slimmed down a little the last few weeks, DESPITE the Christmas cookies, oy.
