Likely not this year. But that doesn’t mean you can skip your week off. In fact, if at all possible, you mustn’t. Summer holidays, like weekends serve a few specific, vital purposes. The wants and needs differ from person to person, but we all benefit from an occasional, healthy dose of a few - or a lot - of the following: Rest, recovery, escape, play, sleep, fiction, family-time, me-time, down time, outdoor time, slower pace, faster pace, different pace, more exercise, sex, less exercise, more beer, no beer, no news… You get the idea. We need a break from work, from school, from routine. The weekends and holidays are the perfect time to change it up. A little or a lot. Play more, laugh more, just be. What are you craving more of? What do you need a break from? What would make you smile, giggle, laugh out loud? Your job today: Plan 4-7 days where you permit yourself and your loved ones to fully immerse in a completely different, seriously enjoyable stretch of time. Come on. It’s actually good for you.

Racquet of the Day
Hang in there!
I see it all the time: A player hits a loose shot and gets so frustrated that he forgets he's still in the point. When you hit a less than perfect shot, try to just hang in there under pressure and work your way back into the point. By working hard and keeping the ball in play you can win rallies from positions where you shouldn't, and in doing so plant a seed of doubt in your opponent’s head. This also proves true in doubles squash where you can work together as a team by using defensive tactics such as height and angles to get yourselves back into the point.
For more squash tips and tactics, you can connect directly with Tyler Hamilton, Squash Pro at the Cambridge Club here.
Trainer Moves of the Day
If anyone is having an absolute blast at home these days it’s Penny. Grab a pair of socks (the more colourful and crazy, the better!) and check out this fun, funny and effective full body Sock Workout!
Penny’s Pro Tip: “When you get to the part of the exercise where you have to slide between your arms, be sure to stack some books on both sides to elevate your arms. You’ll know what I mean when you get to that part lol!”
