No update since April Super E?
Well, it has all been pretty routine since then.
But yesterday was not.
I usually manage a fall on the court once a year or so shedding varying amounts of dignity in the process. But yesterday's was worse than usual when, according to the other side of the court, I tripped over my foot when going for a wide forehand. Managed to cut lip (much blood), graze right hand (same), mildly sprain left wrist, bump left side, and hit and slightly bruise both knees. On the whole I came out of it lucky as nothing was broken. I was able to get home soon after and put the wrist on ice and that certainly got rid of the incipient swelling. I strongly endorse this procedure which I have not always followed rigorously in the past. One day after, I feel fine and the weather seems to have put a stop to tennis for the rest of the week anyway. Still, if I had to play, I might need to serve underarm
. I'm right handed and it would have been worse if I had landed on that side.
We are in September and tennis groups will be coming together again towards the middle of the month. One way and the other, I look like hitting a tennis ball every day, weather permitting. Fortunately, they are not all high intensity. Thursday night is but Friday is decidedly not and the weekend and Tuesday games are very social. Monday can be challenging and Wednesday will be the regular hour long hit with the instructor which is a good workout to say the least and is good for addressing recurring bad habits. Perhaps we should work on footwork.
So, says he, getting to his feet. Onward and upward.
