Last night was the cardio clinic finale. The coach ran us more than any other class this summer or fall. Laps, suicides, het touches during drills, all of it. It was cold out and it was brutal.
The lesson afterward was limited to some ground strokes and a ton of serves. It’s really starting to come together. I do like a lesson.
We got to talking, in the lesson, about the things we’re working on and what I’m working toward. The gist was that I’m “learning tennis” not just getting better at how I do it.
This is exactly what I wanted from these lessons. I come with some built-in limitations (old, fat, slow) but I compound those when I’m not serving or hitting the ball the right way. Now, by learning proper technique, I should only be limited by the built-in stuff. If i can keep it going through the winter I should be set up well when play starts in the Spring.
