I just played tennis for the first time in 4 months
GOD It was awesome, and I actually played pretty decently. It's true that you don't know what you have until you miss it. You know the funniest part? After finishing the practice (1 hour) I wasn't tired at all, before the injury I used to play tennis like 4 hours a week and I usually ended tired after every practice. But while I was injured I had been practicing yoga and applied the yoga breathing in my tennis training, it's AWESOME, I wasn't tired at all after finishing!
The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Well done! I am about to do the same thing...I have not picked up a racquet in half a year (because of an injury) and I am playing next weekend! My physio got me to pilaties which I am helping will help my on court breathing control and what not!
