No, it's not a new Bond movie. I'm trying to figure out what in the Sam Hill is going on with my middle finger.
At first, I thought I was just cutting off the blood circulation by pulling the band (for tennis elbow) too tight but today, I wasn't wearing it when the finger got that "I'm going to hold my breath until I turn blue feeling." My husband was nearby at the time so there is a witness to testify that my finger did, in fact, turn blue from the base of the finger to
I noticed the Vet Open for sabre is on Friday and V50 for sabre is on Saturday at Richmond, leaving Sunday to either return home or.... drum beast... think drum beat for an execution... stay and fence women's epee.
I think I know what Coach's reaction would be if I asked him about this, but I'm thinking seriously of going to the other fencing place, re-joining for the use of the facilities during the times the JCC is closed, and doing a little epee fencing.

I still have it... the tennis elbow, that is (in addition to the lame). It seldom bothers me and I've been wearing a thing that restricts my movement while fencing so as not to aggravate the tendonitis but
We practice at the Jewish Community Center (renting space by the hour) so our schedules have been inconsistent due to closures.
I went to practice Wednesday and Thursday and did far too little. On Friday, I spent some time drilling and then fencing with Fabian, a new fencer who I hope will be fencing WSV50 later. I also fenced with Andy both Thursday and Friday and felt absolutely miserable about my inability to parry and/or attack successfully. At the end of practice on Friday,
