Last night I played my usual doubles at TCCP. It was fun. Although my legs were still tired, I ended up playing quite well. I was seeing balls at the net better and had really good shot placement. Sometimes I wonder if it's helpful to "pre-exhaust" myself so that I end up having more control.
I had been thinking last night before bed about how far I've come in my fitness abilities over the last 5 years or so. After all, looking back over the last few days, I played four hours of tennis on Saturday, did boxing and ran 13 miles on Sunday, did a strength workout Monday morning, and still killed my tennis Monday evening. That's a lot of activity to be doing, most of it at a pretty successful level. And I am not unduly fatigued or sore. (I did drink a heck of a lot yesterday, though.) At any rate, it made me think about how much I've accomplished, and I'm pretty proud of it.
This morning I did Body Beast BUILD Chest/Tris and P90X2 Ab Ripper. I wasn't as sore as I expected from the shoulder work yesterday. However, usually my chest gets really sore the first time I work it in awhile. I felt like I was quite a bit stronger in my chest today than the last time I'd done it, which I suppose is good. I burned about 190 calories total.
