With my busy travel schedule, tennis has become a less frequent activity for me. I have really missed being the courts! I LOVE THIS SPORT! People often think that tennis has helped me get fitter. It's actually the reverse for me. I train hard so that I can be fitter for tennis!
It makes a difference! One of the motivators for me getting my act together starting back in March was that I have the USTA Georgia State Mixed Doubles Championships this week! This is tennis in HEAT, and I could likely play two matches a day!
There is no way I was going to show up in Augusta without being as fit as I can be!
Although I am still a frequent work traveler, I did manage to get in 3 1/2 hours on the court this week, and got in some play last week.
As this week is State week, I plan to get on the courts every day up until I leave Thursday evening! I'll be keeping up with my regular training as well--started this morning with a quick 2 mi-run. I plan to get in a cycling class too before practice this evening.
This may sound like a lot, but it takes A LOT to perform and perform well on the court!
