I fenced epee tonight. I debated back and forth about going as I am still under the weather.
I won one bought and lost the rest. That is okay. At least I was moving. I will take stock of myself at our "Epee Fest" next Saturday.
I have a problem. A month or two ago, I hurt my hamstring...or a muscle in the back of my thigh....(who knows)....fencing sabre. Last week it was hurting me again when I fenced.
Tonight during our warm up, I did a long lunge and it hurt like hell. I don't know what to do about this. What would a doctor tell me? The "Smart Jim" knows that if I keep fencing, I could really screw myself up. The "What-the-hell Jim" says tape it up...fence light next week and then you can heal up over the Christmas break.
This has the potential to take me out of fencing. I will try to read up on it and figure some things out.
This is what every 50 veteran fencer knows is a possibility. Something can take you out of the game. Illness or injury.
I want to make it to our little Veteran Tournament. I would like to give a good account of myself there. Not win , just fence well.
