Fri. - practiced outdoors for about an hour and had no energy and thus didn’t hit real well.

Sat. – 2 hrs of doubles; won 4 & 4 and played a bit better than last Thursday

Sun. - jogged for 30 minutes at the local park.  First time I've jogged in a long time due to the knee but it was a soft dirt path and I went sloooooooooooooooooooow.

Tonight – playing singles for an hour in our league tonight.  I hope to keep building on my singles progression to the point where I feel comfortable on the singles court again.  I really need to get the service return in working order.


The D'Ster pops in a combo fitness/tennis log - I love it!!  :lifting)  How are you feeling today after the jogging?  30 mins is a long time in my book - after a long layoff, it only takes 15-20 min of jogging to give me the serious 3-day-sore muscles.

Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

Knee feels a little stiff but I'll get to my match 30 minutes early and ride the bike and stretch and should be good to go.  Ya know bird, it HURTS me to read about your lunges. My right knee dont do no lunging  ..-) .

Singles last night was VERY disappointing.  I played the human rain delay "The Rocker (CR) and won 5-3 but I didn't win as much as he lost.  I didn't do anything particulary well.  I am quite depressed.  You gotta love these time limit leagues  :;:-| .  The last 2 weeks I've lost 3-3 and won 5-3...almost not worth even going.

How much time do you have to play?

You get the court from 8 to 9.  After a 15 minute warm up you have 45 minutes.  But if you lead by 2 games when it hits 5 till you automatically win.  SO basically you might have 40 minutes...
Good Luck on the Court!!!

That's pretty pathetic. But then we get an hour and a half in our league and w frequently get 2 sets in. But this is doubles so the points are shorter.
Seems to me an early warm up, or a 5 minute warm up is in order. But then you don't want to pull a muscle or hurt yourself.

You are correct young Grasshopper.  But you know when you play the Rocker, he waks in at 8:05 and takes forever to warmup so it's about 8:20 when you start and you have to be done by 8:55......so you get the picture.

Yeah, that time frame sucks.

Dm - we get 2 hours in dubs, 1 hour in singles.  Ohio puts such great emphasis on singles.  Pathetic...
Good Luck on the Court!!!

You guys will appreciate the first experience I had with the Rocker.  Way back in 2000 (I think!), when I was still playing in Cincy, our USTA team went to playoffs, and faced the Scarborough team.  The other courts had tied 2-2, leaving Rocker playing against the youngest guy on our team (who was probably 28 at the time).  Of course everyone was watching from above.  And watching, and watching, and watching.....as the Rocker slow-played to death.  Not that I blame him - our guy was much more athletic and in great shape, and the Rocker was giving up at least 10 years to boot.  But the suspense was just eating us.  And to his credit, Rocker played a great match - our guy won in 3 close sets, but he really earned them.  I'm pretty sure that match took close to 3.5 hrs.

The Rocker could make a 2 & 2 match last 3 hours.   :whistle:

No tennis yesterday as I worked job #1 (primary) from 7:00AM – 5PM then went to job 2 (tennis club) from 5:45 – 10:15 .  My exercise for the day consisted of walks to and from my car, 135 trips to the bathroom (been drinking 100 oz of water daily), and road range rantings which easily burn 500 calories a day.  I also burn many a calorie a day by day dreaming.  I had a nice one about Scott teaching me how to properly string a racket.  Usually any dream which includes Scott is considered a nightmare.   ;-()

Hey stranger.  Yes, I turned the monitor in last weekend but my follow-up with the doc isn't till end of May.  I was told however that if anything crazy had shown up, I would've rec'd a call.  So now I wait a few weeks and will be told that they don't have a clue.  The ONLY thing I've been told so far is that my blood pressure is borderline high and cholesterol level is barely ok and they want me to go on Lipitor and I so far have refused.  It has been about 6 weeks since my last dizzy spell so if I follow form, I'm good for about 10 more before I get zapped again.  Although there is a chance Scott will be on my court tonight and since he has been on my court 2 of the 4 times..........

Sorry to hear about Gillespie.  I hope your replacement picks up where he left off.
