QUEENS OF THE COURT!

Lifestyle post alert: I went along to the semifinals of the Aegon Championships at Queens Club on Saturday and despite suffering some classic British summertime showers between sunnier spells, the experience reaffirmed my love for ‘tennis-as-cardio’! The generally accepted wisdom is that you can burn c. 4-500 calories during an hour of tennis, which might not be as significant as a hardcore ‘hill-sprint’ session, but a) it’s mentally engaging so the hour races by, b) competitively compelling, c) sociable, and d) the actual calorie burn varies ALOT with factors like temperature, humidity, experience levels, player weight etc, so 500 cal doesn’t need to be the ceiling!

In the meantime, we were treated to an RAF ‘Fly-By’ in honour of the Queen, epic court-side seats at the baseline to see all the action, Andy Murray (the eventual winner of the tournament) on court right in front of me, and sightings of all the tennis establishment, like Sue Barker (in the snaps below). Whilst the day was 60% rain and a mere 12 degrees (hello, it’s the middle of June?!), the random British summer gave us a few patches of intense sunshine, during which we got snapping! I popped on my Monreal London hoodie and whipped out my Mulberry mini-Cara bag to get into the English swing of things – just missing the Strawberries and Cream, but I think I’ll save that for Wimbledon 😀
