OK, An easy mile and a walk/run back. Ran north past the tennis courts to the mile mark from Belmont Harbor. A little stiffness in my right instep again so I didn't press. Want to do a good 3 on Sunday.
On the way back I watched a mom teaching a very small little boy how to hit the tennis ball. She bounced the ball and then swung his racket by holding his hand which held the racket so he'd get the idea. After several of these he took the ball himself. Walked up to the net and dropped it over from his hand.
I mean really, if you want to deposit tennis balls in the other court this probably is the most sensible way! Another Agassi?
This is the very BEST Chicago running weather. Wish I was going farther (further?) but so it goes.
