It has been a while since I posted. The good news is that I got 2nd place in the tournament I mentioned earlier. The bad news is that I still have a ways to go to gain back my endurance. My precision is returning, and I am able to manage the bout with my feet... for a while. At my age it is so easy to gain useless weight, but hard to get rid of it. I am limiting my red meat, and i am trying to work out in the club at least 2-3 nights a week. I have a tournament in Portland, OR in October and I think I have a chance to do really well. We will see.
