After a two week hiatus from fencing (one week due to the unavailability of our venue, and the second week due to travelling to a Saturday Liturgy), we went back to it today feeling rather out of condition.
Actually, make that **very** out of condition.
By the time our two hour session had ended, I took off my metal mask to be greeted with good-natured banter about the remarkable beetroot-red colour of my face.
Once the fencing jacket and underjacket had been removed, my T-shirt was literally wringing wet due to exertion and lack of AC in the gym together with a day of glorious sunshine.
DD3 was nicely pink, but nowhere near my colour. Perhaps I need to get my blood pressure checked too :-0
It was just brilliant fun, and utterly exhilirating! I can't wait for next Saturday to zoom around.........
