  1. Deserted

    by , 08-02-2006 at 11:39 PM
    The club was quiet, with two youth fencers and about six juniors, and I decided that if no sabre fencers showed up by 7:30 I was going home. I didn't feel like doing more footwork, since I had done about half an hour of fairly intense work with my trainer this morning.

    Just before 7:30, of course, DJ and Alexei rolled in, so I fenced them each for an extended amount of time. I made the initial steps smaller and more controlled and did much better against Alex's forward-leaning left-handed ...

  2. Workouts

    by , 08-02-2006 at 02:42 PM
    I'm glad I scheduled my gym training sessions for 7:00 a.m. because we can get it out of the way before the weather gets bad. I'm not even that sweaty, even though I bike fifteen minutes there and back. Also, my trainer has a bad cold but he comes in anyway to work with me, and then goes home; I respect his commitment (and his appreciation for cash) but I hope I don't catch it. Yesterday we did weights and some core stuff, today we did balance and stability and more core stuff. He had me do ...

  3. Summer doldrums

    Tom was there, and Alexei, and that was it. I did about half an hour of footwork, then drilled attacks with Tom. I stopped to fix his lunge because he's going to blow his knee out doing that--even when he was landing on his heel, he was rolling onto his toe and going over his knee.

    I fenced Tom for a bit and then Alexei, both of them a couple of times. I was working on the good start I acquired on Saturday in the consolation pool, so Alexei beat me 10-3 or so with crappy lean-forward ...

  4. Tournament

    by , 07-29-2006 at 09:21 PM
    More later - I'm using a kiosk at the airport - but we had about 33 for the tournament. I only won two bouts in my pool and was very frustrated because (as Ariana commented) I was making my second step too big and (as I noticed) I wasn't using the whole strip. I had a DE against a guy my height but he could still reach me. That meant I didn't get to go into the second round of pools, but on the whole I didn't really want to because none of the other women had made it into the 16 either so it ...

  5. Prise de Fer building

    by , 07-29-2006 at 02:43 PM
    I decided to test Hertz's GPS navigation system by driving from the hotel to PdF, and found that if you deliberately go the wrong way it simply says "Calculating route" and figures out a way to get you there without turning you around. Not very useful!

    When I got there Mr. Ma was talking to David, with Mike sitting by and Ariana just coming in. It was nice to see Mr. Ma--I haven't been making it over to his club and it takes a trip several states away to run into him! He'll be coming ...
