Frustration on the Court

My racquetball has been awful lately. And I mean totally miserable. It is following the problems going on in my life with my shoulder and now my cubital tunnel syndrome.

But worse, I am not moving and seeing the ball--it is like I am playing in slow motion.

Last night I got smoked like I wasn't even on the court.

I am frustrated. To say that I definitely do not have the "eye of the tiger" right now would be a understatement.

Playing so miserably really takes the fun out of the game. I hate losing--don't get me wrong, but losing when I am playing well is a lot more palatable than just acting like road kill on the court.

I am like road kill.

But I keep playing because I figure there is no way to get out of a funk unless I keep trying. Every day is a new day. Maybe it is just like an extended hitting slump that some baseball players go through.
