  1. Starting the cycle ALL over again.

    by , 07-01-2014 at 09:59 PM
    My foot is not getting better. I may have to go back to the podiatrist for the next step, which involves a series of saline solution injections to deaden the nerve. But I can't afford to let it hold me back any more. The past year my strength has really deteriorated because of my hip, knee, and foot problems, and though I kept training, I really wasn't at my best. The weight workout I do at the gym is okay, but my core strength is just not there, though I don't know how that's connected. ...

  2. Pan Am

    by , 06-30-2014 at 12:10 PM
    Well, despite what some folks think about this being a 'not worthwile event', or fencing TOURISM in Aruba, I am signed up and should be gtg for selection based on current point standings. No, this may not be the Olympics, or some fancy World Cup in France or something, this would be my first international experience, as well as being able to say that I made a USA team. I will be treating this as my biggest event fenced and training appropriately, despite my origional post S/N plans of resting ...

  3. Pan Am

    by , 06-30-2014 at 04:56 AM
    I've taken a leap of faith and signed up for the Pan Am. Given that I feel like I've been knee capped and the usual rest, ice, Aleve hasn't reduced the symptoms, it's fortunate the leap of faith does not require a physical act.

    Oddly enough, there's no swelling and I can reach 90% flexibility on one of the machines at the gym. However, the knee still hurts like heck and it's got that rubber band/wooden ball feeling that is usually the first warning sign that something very bad has ...

  4. Planning for Retirement

    by , 06-29-2014 at 07:38 PM
    After looking at our finances, the situations we're both facing in our work organizations, and looking at who will be aging into WSV60 next year (Lum & Runyon), I'm hoping to move up my retirement by a year.

    My knee hurts and it hurts more when I spend a few hours driving and being a pack mule with equipment and I've reached the point where I'd rather retire than break. There's also a young co-worker who'd love to transfer to my office and take over my job when I leave and he can ...

  5. Summer Nationals

    by , 06-29-2014 at 11:48 AM
    Well, I didn't quite accomplish my goal, but am pretty satisfied with my result in the Vet40 Men's Epee. A lot of training and preparation went into this event. After going 5-0 in pools and a +12 indicator I was seeded #2 for DEs, second to the eventual winner. With a bye out of the first round, I was feeling ok. My second round DE was actually a lot closer than I would have preferred. I sometimes have trouble with 'non-standard' fencing styles. We had a non-combat call and ended up 9-9 at ...
