Pool of seven. It did not go well at all. The calls were consistently attack, counter attack against me. When I'm not getting the attack it usually means three things. I'm not extending, I'm leaning back, and my first step off the line is too big. Either I was unable to fix these things or the ref was seeing something else. The last bout went a little better than the others, and I felt slightly more effective. Finished the pool with four touches total and seeded last (67th). Scored twice on parry

I've been real up and down lately, some days I feel great. Some days I feel and look like crap on the strip. Last night was crap.
New drill we've been working on though. Straight up fencing with a partner, 10-touch bout. But after you score 3 touches, partner takes away one of your moves- beat attack, parry 4, straight attack etc. You can't take away 'attacks' or 'retreats' or 'lunges,' nothing that sweeping. I mean, you still have to be able to fence.
It was one of those "where the hell is everyone?" nights at the club. No waiting for a strip, which was nice. I fenced everyone I wanted to, 9 bouts.
Expearamented with distance and 1,2,3. Worked on keeping myself balanced, which is becoming more natural at every practice.
Noteable bouts: Eric L: He cleaned my clock. First bouts of the night are always problematic. I forget about defense, and it takes time to adjust distance (warm-up bouts before competitions are key).
Wednesday foil class, nine (four advanced, two intermediates, and three beginners).
Warmups were on the balance toys. I haven’t done much work at all on the BOSU ball, but the balance board has paid off over the last year. I can now catch and throw bean bags reasonably well while on it.
Drill. More of the slow extension drill with distance options, then parry and disengage options. This is feeling pretty good except for parrying while recovering. Something about that

Parfois, ils ne tiennent pas très bien dans la sécheuse. Nettoyeur de chaussures fonctionne assez bien, mais il faut attendre et laisser sécher. Je me sens à l'aise dans cette paire de chaussures Nike gratuits, mais si vous souhaitez exécuter en dehors de mieux cherche une paire avec plus de soutien.
