Last night, Jill and I won #2 doubles on our 3.5 team. Jill was not feeling well, but it didn't show in her play if you didn't know her. I could tell she didn't have quite her usual energy level, but she certainly didn't let down her end of the play. We won 6-2, 6-4. Our opponents switched sides in the second set, which worked better for them, but wasn't quite enough. Happily my elbow was OK. I can feel that it aches a bit, but it doesn't have the acute pain I started getting a couple weeks ago.
This morning I did Insanity the Asylum Vol. 2 Agility Tutorial and Pure Contact. Again, I skipped through the intro sequences of the Agility Tutorial to cut down the time a bit. This gave me a reasonable burn. The pike-ups in Pure Contact are killer. I burned about 230 calories.
OK, so this is a bit self-congratulatory, but someone I was talking to made me think about looking at my tennis record so far this season. I've been doing really well, which has been fun!
In mixed combo, I've won 3 of 4: the 3 I played with my husband, all on #1 doubles.
In women's 6.5 combo, I've won 7 of 9. I've played myself as a 3.5 in this league, so all of my wins were with another 3.0, usually Joan or Fran.
In 3.0, I've won 3 of 5. Surprisingly, this is my worst record. One of the loses was against my nemesis, Marva. One win was in singles.
In 3.5, I've won 8 of 10. This is pretty amazing to me! And not all of these were on #3 doubles, even though I'm 3.0. Both of my losses were against a super-hard team, both on #2 doubles. And they weren't horrible losses, either. One win was in singles, as well. Cool beans!
