Priorities

11 Jan

Results weren’t there at today’s tournament. I fenced with better energy in the pool bouts, but still only managed six touches in four bouts. A -14 indicator; not good at all. Once again, I fenced much better in my DE, getting 10 touches.

Didn’t have fun. Spent the day in a funk, lamenting my performance. If I’m going to be like that, then it really is a waste of time to attend tournaments.

So perhaps I should change my priorities on competition day. Plan to enjoy the experience, talk to people, cheer for my teammates. Don’t make it about me or my performance. Try to have fun, regardless of the results.
