coming back

Friday, January 04, 2013

I was injured after a tennis match back on Oct 24. I had no symptoms till I woke up on the 26th and both my knees were so swollen I had to wear sweat pants because my jeans wouldn't go up over the swelling. Then my right ankle starting hurting a day later. I ended up with tiny menicus tears in my right knee and ankle impingement syndrome in my right ankle. To top if off, I was clenching my teeth during my sleep due to the pain and tore the ligaments in my TMJ. So I now have therapy on the knee/ankle and the jaw. Plus I wear a mouth splint 24/7.

I just got the OK today from my therapist to start walking on the treadmill and doing some line jumps. It is so exciting to be doing something to get me back on the tennis court.

Not being able to do much exercising has also caused a weight gain. But I'm back on track, and working on the weight loss as I add more exercises. I hope to be back on the court the first week in Feb. For someone who has not been injured, this has been a real challenge.

New personal best

Monday, April 19, 2010

Set a new personal best today. One mile in 11 minutes, 50 seconds. Don't know how I can go any faster, but didn't think I could get under 12 either and I did that. It might take a while to beat this one. But I'll keep trying. Still reaching for that under 10 minute mile.

Tennis camps

Monday, March 01, 2010

I'm interested in any information on tennis camps in the US. Would love to hear a review if you have attended one. How many hours of lessons on the court did you get? Were you video taped and given a review?
