  1. Diagnosis Dallas

    by , 11-11-2014 at 11:41 AM
    The original plan was to avoid the doctor's office until AFTER Dallas but I'm stubborn, not stupid. Thus, I had an appointment this morning that confirmed my suspicions. Shoulder tendonitis. Tennis elbow. Nothing really bad yet but I do need to give my body some rest.

    Part of the problem is fencing and part of the problem is some work-related responsibilities. However, the biggest problem is that I'm not 15 anymore. Older bodies are a little more fragile and need a little more ...
  2. A shiny isn't quite big enough for a martini coaster

    Between the teen and ref stuff, I haven’t said much about my own fencing lately. I’ve spent most of the fall nicked up one way or another: mainly a patellofemoral pain that started up on the drive home from vacation in August and didn’t clear up in the succeeding weeks. I finally saw the doctor and got x-rays to rule out arthritis and advice to hit the ibuprofen with gusto to try and knock down any inflammation. The good thing was that the pain only occurred when I was sitting still, and walking ...

    And anyone who says differently is trying to sell you something.

    Probably Biofreeze.

    I have invested in 6 containers thus far and only one of them has an applicator so I can apply Biofreeze without getting any on my fingers before putting in or taking out my contacts. Note to the novices: Never apply Biofreeze first and THEN touch your eye.

    The pinched nerve problem is mostly resolved but at the expense of irritating the old rotor cuff problem, which ...
  4. 99 Problems

    by , 11-03-2014 at 10:26 AM
    Peter Westbrook said "In fencing you are going to lose more than you win...." no truer words have ever been spoken. Looking back over the course of the past couple of years I have returned to competitive fencing. There have been challenges good and bad; weight loss, weight gain, injuries, life(family, work, limited fencing funds). So at the end of last season I proclaimed Summer Nationals 2015 I'm going and I am going to kick ass all the way there. Ask me how that plan is going. Yup you guessed ...
  5. Notes 1Nov 2014 – Feeling Better

    by , 11-01-2014 at 11:03 AM
    Last Sunday, I went to the Panthers Halloween Event because one of our students was scheduled to attend. Pulling up I see another parent's car, so I'm pleasantly surprised when two students are competing in the Cadet foil. I missed the bouts, but get there in time to watch, and coach, their first DE round. I'd like to think they both won their first DE because of my excellent coaching abilities, but that would be a lie. I only offered support and guidance while they did the work.
