  1. RU feeling athletic? No.

    The tendonitis is somewhat manageable. [Pause to knock on wood.] I can fence as long as I'm wearing my sleeve cuff without any sensations of pain during or afterwards, although I do ice it ASAP to be safe. I do notice the symptoms (1) when I wake every morning; (2) when I do my arm exercises; and (3) when I do little things like zipping up my coat. No pain until the angle rises above 90 degrees and then there's a warning signal about the time the zipper reaches the top.

    I've had ...

  2. Because I'm the mom, that's why!

    Steve was NOT a fencer; he was a bodybuilder and the first and only bodybuilder I'd ever really known (we worked in the same department for a few years). He was my first encounter with someone who had dedicated his life to achieving a goal that initially appeared to bring no significant monetary compensation. In fact, he quit his job (he was a co-worker) and went to work for a subcontractor so he could work part-time and devote more effort to bodybuilding.

    Here's a link that includes ...

  3. Hello!

    The non-combativity rules are a little confusing to me as a sabre fencer, so these are also giving me some problems. I THINK I've got it. The change I found reads:

    a) If during the two first periods of a direct elimination bout of 10 or 15 touches both fencers make clear their unwillingness to fight*, the Referee will award a warning (yellow card) against each of the two fencers and will proceed to the next period, without the minute rest.

    96. During a pool bout, the ...

  4. Defining 'elsewhere' for mental masochists...

    I've been reviewing the changes and marking what I believe to be the correct responses but when I reached this one, I had a problem:

    48. No penalties have been given. After causing incidental corps a corps with Fencer Y, Fencer X leaves the side of the strip with both feet.
    a. Y advances one meter; X receives a yellow card in foil and sabre
    b. Y holds ground except if it would cause X to be placed behind X's end line; X receives a yellow card in foil and sabre.

  5. Housecleaning

    If this works, you'll see a picture of my daughter's horse. When I say little horse, I'm not joking. He's a miniature and he's been recently trained to pull a buggy. I don't know who took the picture but that's my daughter, her horse, and someone else's buggy and house.


    I'm not a little horse today, but I am a little sore. I think the one-legged reclining leg press Friday did something bad to my back as I've had ...
