A wall, a ball, and a racket.

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.
