Back to The Fencing Salle

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

So, you may remember that a while back (re: all last semester) the fencing gym I was going to was closed for repairs. You might also remember my lamentations about trying to find the location(s) it was running at while it was being repaired. You might also remember how I pretty much gave up on that once the semester really kicked into gear, and how intensely crazy my bottled up energy was driving me.

Well, that will not be happening this semester! I went fencing last night, and it was amazing.

Okay, amazing because I got to go. Not so amazing because, woah, I am out of shape. Well, out of fencing shape that is. My poor little legs and feet are so blasted sore this morning. And I have a giant gash in my hand where, in the course of 3 bouts (maybe 20 minutes total - of which I won them all! This girl's still got it!) I managed to get a blister and have it start bleeding (mental note, maybe next time remember to pack the glove that doesn't have the hole in the palm). And boy, does that huuuuuuurt!

But in the end, none of that matters - I'm back in training!


Thank you all so much for your comments! I'm only happy when I have comments. Really. You are contributing to my future happiness right now! XOXO
