Fitness ...

I made no particular resolutions about it, but one of my goals for the year was to get fitter, to help with fencing competitions (and life in general).
We've been quite irregular in getting to the gym. At the beginning of the year, either rwrylsin or myself seemed to be down with a cold of some sort much of the time, and then we both got knocked out by chest infections (the repeated colds were probably just a symptom of that, or so we think). We lost March and most of April to that. Then, from August on, the year got busy - WorldCon, Berlin, and a bunch of fencing competitions. I usually try to avoid going to the gym for at least 4-5 days before a comp., because I usually end up with sore muscles somewhere, and want to be in the peak of whatever condition I have for the comp. Still, we have managed to go there about once a week for the last month or so, and a few times in the last week while we're on holiday. Next year we should be able to go more often and continue improving in strength and fitness.

Meanwhile, mostly for my own future reference, here's my current workout : Collapse )
