I guess you describe my most recent foray into better food and better health with the intent to attack some precise goals. First, I want to learn more about racquetball, the equipment, and, more importantly, the tactics of the game. In that end, I’m been playing pretty frequently lately with three opponents who shall go nameless.
The first is a nice gal and enjoys the fun of the game more than the competitive spirit of the moment. The game is fun with her because it is a chance to get sweaty, get the heart rate up, and generally have a good time. Player two is much more skilled. He is having fun and getting sweaty; however, he draws upon a significant history of playing squash. It is pretty easy to see he understands angles, kill-shots, and has an amazing ability to reach out and touch just about any shot. Sometimes it is tough to get a shot past him. (Perhaps I should start developing my drop-shot game.)t to keep up. Finally, there is my good, large, friend who plays very well. He seems to nail the corner shots with ease, yawns during heavy rallies, and generally crushes all my attempts to impact his game. The closest I’ve come is 21-12 after a heated rally. However, I think I’m starting to understand some of the nuances of the game.
Racquetball is great fun. Sure to get you in shape, using heart, mind, legs and arms. After an hour of chasing that blue ball around, you find yourself sweating profusely, but feeling great — regardless of the winner of loser.
