I’m having an affair… taking it to the courts…
The tennis courts that is!
Chingy and I visited our long lost tennis club last night. It was perfect – a crisp 72 degrees, the gentle buzz of the early autumn insects against the hum of the stadium lights… Well, court lights anyway.
Friends… I love me some tennis. I had completely forgotten what an insane workout it is as well as the level of delight it brings me.
Based on my fitness watch calculations, in a set and a half (we were too winded to complete the entire second set so we played to four), there were approximately 700 calories burned in a quick yet exciting 45 minutes.
I believe tennis is so effective at burning calories because it’s similar to running…but amped up. Basically, if you are competitive (and I am), tennis is a hard core series of wind sprints with a bit of hitting the ball around.
Sorry treadmill! I’m stepping out!
