  1. Next to nobody

    by , 07-27-2006 at 09:28 AM
    It was pretty dry tonight. RY, Tom, Matt, DJ, and that's it. LM, AL, and LL were not there because they're leaving tomorrow for Hungary, and there were only about four or five juniors. I felt pretty good but didn't do as well as usual--heck, DJ got four or five touches on me! And Matt almost beat me the first time we fenced. I collected myself, reminded myself to use my back leg for power more and keep out of people's distance, and fixed things. DJ got annoyed because he lost track of the ...

  2. nother training session

    Either he's taking it easy on me or I'm seeing some improvement. I hope the latter. I'm feeling better going up stairs, though that awful stiffness the first week may have made it seem like a relative improvement to be normal.

    T put me on the elliptical trainer for fifteen minutes, which was pretty tough; part way through at the highest setting he was chatting with me and I said, "Can't talk now. I have exercise asthma."

    "You didn't tell me that!" he exclaimed.

  3. Quiet Monday, early Tuesday

    by , 07-25-2006 at 05:01 PM
    It was pretty empty at the club--about 8 juniors when I came in, nothing like the usual hordes. AL, LL, LM, and some of the juniors are going to Hungary Thursday and won't be back until August 8, so I expect it will continue sparse. However, Dapper Dan was there and so was Bob, back after nursing his wife through double knee surgery.

    Lesson with AL was, as usual, technical. I was very tired--although I took Friday off except for some light cycling, Saturday I did an hour of 5 min./5 ...

  4. Keystone State Games

    by , 07-21-2006 at 01:34 PM
    I guess I'll do them again. I know I will probably second-guess my decision. The event tends to move slowly, the level of competition is uneven, the understanding of ROW is parochial, people do more than one event so we sit around and wait, and it's not a short drive. Also, a couple of folks gave me a hard time about my visor mask, as if I had any alternative. But the people are nice, I'm always hopeful and it IS in my state and it IS drivable and there are NOT that many tournaments in the summer. ...

  5. trainer mctrainerperson

    by , 07-20-2006 at 10:13 AM
    When I got up this morning I was cranky and a little tired and still dehydrated even though I drank a lot of fluids. Last night's practice was long and sweaty (my uniform still isn't dry) and I've been working hard four days in a row. T (my trainer) remarked on my lethargy, so I made an effort to get myself in a better frame of mind. We worked on core stuff today, with some of the balance stuff integrated. It was right on the money--tough without being brutal. I need to take a rest day tomorrow, ...
