  1. Muscle Magic

    by , 03-18-2010 at 10:51 PM
    I can feel every muscle throbbing slightly. It is not painful but actually makes me aware that I am actually building some strength and it feels good to know I was using every muscle to its max. I have been doing more weight training in the home in addition to biking. I am actually developing some stamina that should put me in good stead in the months ahead. I can go 5 touch after 5 touch bouts without a break, though after bout #5 I just felt myself give up the last touch on a 4/4 just to get some ...

  2. Love me some Lessons.

    by , 03-11-2010 at 10:43 PM
    Had a good lesson today. It is hard to know how they are going to effect me overall when I don't always get the chance to use the skills in practice. When I compete I am too nervous to try something new. (I know that I should be working on new actions even during tournaments cause its not like my old actions work after my opponent picks up on them!) Anyway, I do feel overall they (the lessons) are boosting my confidence (which as Linda knows cannot be bought online for love or money). I felt more ...

  3. Clubs.

    by , 02-22-2010 at 10:20 PM
    Sometimes I feel very lonely at my club. Like I am invisible to all and as insignificant as my fencing record this past year. Why do I feel like I have to win to prove to them that I am worth teaching, worth encouraging. I feel branded with a scarlet U.
    It is sad. I am an adult. I have a job and a career and a family, yet I just want to be one of the popular kids.
    I like my coach alot. He makes me laugh and I do feel he takes me seriously. My hubby has encouraged me to check out other ...

  4. Hiatus.

    by , 07-02-2009 at 11:16 PM
    Took a two week break from all things fencing. Work has been extra busy and I find myself working on charting way into the evening. Kid's were sick with some fever filled nightmare inducing virus that kept them up and therefore me up all night. Then my MIL visited for the week.

    I realized that I missed it alot and that the muscles I worked so hard for melt like butter with disuse. I need to get a serious coach. I need to learn some real tactics and work on my game before the fall. Unfortunately ...

  5. Saber and other randomness

    by , 04-23-2009 at 10:38 PM
    Today I tried my hand at saber just to see what Peach is so gaga about. I was all "how hard could it be" and then got hit in the head. My ears rang a little after that. I didn't quite understand how a parry on my part was considered my opponents and I kept on attacking with bent arm when I realized its my wrist that need to do the work. So confusing but was alot of fun to learn. How did I hurt my pinky is what I want to know?

    Next week it is back to foil in prep for my next E and under. ...
