Outdoor tennis today
As per my partner's rule regarding weather, where there's no snow nor cold winds we play.

We could still manage to hit 90minutes at 3 degrees Celsius last week. He recalled that last year we enjoyed -4 degrees :shock: which I could not recall how I survived it. Maybe due to the 14-year layoff from playing and I just started to play last year - and really.. it felt sooo good. There was excitement that time.

Now, since I won B-class singles in my club I joined this year, and cannot think of surviving zero temp tomorrow morning. Am I having the "elite" type of behaviour? Strings I noticed loses tensions. But it doesn't affect my regimen of muscle-memory stroke training.

I assume 0 Celcius is 32 Farhrenheit? That's not too cold, it's freezing. Long pants, socks, shoes, long shirt, cap, and you're fine.
OTOH, it's pouring rain here. I've hit in pouring rain, was fine with my 12.5 oz racket hitting those heavy wet balls. Our running and movement, however, was lacking in grace and precision.

As long as it is sunny and above freezing everything is good.
