I am at a weird place. I am enjoying my break from fencing and at the same time I long for it to end. ( A prime example of "What you have got....You want it not." )
I am working out very hard during my week off. I must condition myself to be a gym rat again. When fencing starts, ( Mr. Pointy unleashed! ) I will only have work days at lunch to do the gym and non-tournament weekends. I must get in that habit again.
I have been eating correctly for the last couple of days. It will take a while to see if this paying off. I hate my bathroom scale. It is a lying bastard and does not know it's peril!
The online fencing stuff is not very interesting of late. I do wish Beth would move to a place with affordable fencing. I hated to read that post. If I ever win Powerf Ball, I will sponsor you Tiger. ( Of course, I guess that means at some point I will need to buy a ticket.) I use to read Fencing Net everyday, but there is not much going on there, so I rarely read it. The DFC; NCF and Facebook (Forum parts....NCF is a good site!) boards are without much content. My own journal is not hitting on much either.
Then there is AskFred. Now why in the heck do people not preregister? What the heck is so hard about this? You either think you are coming or you don't.
I am in the process of putting some "practice fencing " music on my brand new shiny MP3 player. Yep....Jim takes a big lunge into this century. Naturally I either have loaned out or cannot find my three fave CDs for this. I believe this is around the sixth time I have changed technology for my music. It is something only Vet 50 people understand completely. Let me just tell the world......we are getting a little tired of it. Not that this does not beat the heck out a vinyl record.
It is early Thursday morning and I am about to stop and head to the gym. They have a great aerobic room with mirrors. I practice my lunge and footwork in there if no one is around. I wish fencing was a little more mainstream sometimes. I would love to take my epee in there and practice, but things that look like weapons tend to flip people out. Rightfully so, I guess.
Enough random and not fully caffeinated thoughts for now.
