I haven't been posting much, because things have been busy and my mind has been other things. I was on winter break from school, which you'd think would be a time for me to relax, but instead it's usually the only time I have both the inclination and the time to tackle things like going through some of the things in the basement (my mother's things, my daughter's things, plus our own stored stuff) and wading through the clothes in my closets. Except for outings to the gym to lift and do aerobic,
After the flu, Christmas and New Year holidays I'm glad to be getting back into a regular training schedule.
Once a week is not close to enough.
Fenced 5 last night. I thought, after all that time off, my distance would be a mess, my timing would be off. I thought I'd forgotten how to fence essentially. It was not quite as bad as I'd expected.
Worked on tempo change (feet) and opposition.
Noteable bouts: Ben W: Scored 9 on him. Was able to see his preperations
These are the songs currently on my playlist for footwork and tournament listening. They're all energetic, with a beat that makes me want to dance. Many NSFW, to say the least. A lot of people have playlists for tournaments that are either angry or ferociously fast, with a hyper beat. I like something closer to fencing tempo.

We held what is turning into our annual Winter Break event. Results are at http://askfred.net/Results/results.p...ament_id=25020. There were 24 fencers from four different clubs: West Chester YMCA, Easton YMCA, Avon Grove Charter School and Collegium Charter School. It's great to have a fencers from different clubs and schools. A couple of the fencers from Easton have USFA tournament experience, so they brought a different energy and style to the bouts, which were fenced non-electric. Some
Several other members have already shared notes about the Chinese Food and Movies tournament at Liberty. We were there too, and since this was decidedly in the just-for-fun category, I fenced in it. Further, since the last time I fenced, I was having more success with timing than with bladework (no surprise there), I thought maybe I'd be bett^H^H^H^H less bad at epee than at saber. Plus my son has an old epee he got from his aunt, so we both entered for both weapons.
