911 Aging Fencer Down!

Yesterday at a tournament, I pulled/damaged something in my side/lower back. I was in a tournament and I did not feel it until I unhooked and left the strip. I lost 5-4.

Is this an age thing? Do things like this happen to younger fencers? In  bit over a week, I will be 60 years old. Is this a warning shot across.....in this case......stern?

I hope to fence in Wilmington this weekend. It is very unlikely I will get any practice this week.

I yanked my back playing the "Finding the Moment" drill about 7 months ago (at 35). Put me out for 2 weeks. That'll teach me not to do a little warmup.

Happens. Age...sure. But way before 60.
