Something About Me Saturday: I Went To A Fencing Class This Week

Well, I decided it was about time that I do something about my activity level. Blogging and researching aren't exactly what you call aerobic exercises. I recognize that I am getting older and although I have made changes with improving my diet, exercise is something I have to really get back into the groove of. So I attended a fencing class this past week. It was the first time I fenced in about 14 years. I've written about my fencing days here on this blog before. You can check out my post, Looking Back While Looking Forward.

Boy, did I feel it in my legs! A critical part of fencing practice is doing foot work. 

This video will give you an idea of some of the movements I was practicing.

The neat thing I found was that my stance was still pretty good. I am not a fan of jogging but I know I have to get back to it. I found myself getting winded during practice so I know jogging will definitely help with building my stamina back up. The cool thing was that I had fun.

So here's to me getting fit again. It's time, I can feel it.
No more excuses.


  1. Happy you are getting fit! Research and blogging are the opposite of getting fit, although they keep us mentally alert. I recently started doing the same. Easier at your age, just don't back slide. So hard to catch back up as I approach 70 in a few years.

    1. It feels good to move the body again. Research is exercise for the brain. So my brain has been getting an awesome workout. I felt my body saying hey what about me? What am I chopped liver? Glad to hear you're excising too. I'll try not to back slide. Thanks for the encouragement.

  2. Thanks for sharing this article here about the fencing lessons. Your article is very informative and I will share it with my other friends as the information is really very useful. Keep sharing your excellent work.
