A few years ago, Mel and I bought tennis rackets and had every intention of making tennis a regular part of our summer workouts, but then Mel hurt his knee and the intensive lateral movement in tennis was too much for him. We had to set it aside for a while.
Well now, a year and a half after knee surgery, Mel is pretty much 100% and today we grabbed the bikes and took a ride over to a nearby tennis court to give it a whirl.
I'm happy to report that his skills hadn't deteriorated since the last time we went out and, while it's taking a bit of getting used to, Mel's tennis skills are coming along just fine. We should be able to have a few games over the next few weeks if we can keep up the practice on a regular basis.
I love summer. The gym is great, but it's so nice to work out in the fresh air!
