A Day Of Progress – The Climb #372

Sunday 28th January 2018 I have two swordfighting competitions in the next month.  They’re not for my primary weapon type (rapier & dagger) so I’m not too worried about them.  My hope is that they are a way to ease myself back into competition. First I have the English Sidesword Open.  I’m fighting single sidesword [...]

Organising For The Year Ahead – The Climb #367

Tuesday 23rd January 2018 It always seems to take me until the end of the month to get myself in gear for the year.  My friend says that it’s the same in the gym, that the big influx of new people comes a few weeks into January rather than in the first week. Having a [...]

Teaching Rapier – The Climb #361

Wednesday 17th January 2018 After feeling calmer yesterday I found myself coming back from training  late tonight and having another small panic attack.  It was small enough that I could recognise it right away but it’s meant that whilst being in desperate need for sleep, I’ve stayed up late hoping for it to subside. The [...]

Calmer – The Climb #360

Tuesday 16th January 2018 I’m definitely feeling a lot better today.  I’ve been feeling a lot calmer and my anxiety has died down a lot. It’s left me feeling exhausted.  Having felt like I’ve drunk too many energy drinks the last few days, I now feel like I want to sleep.  Given that I’ve not [...]

Racing To The End – The Climb #357

Saturday 13th January 2018 I’ve not really been in the mood to be sociable today.  A combination of factors have sent my anxiety sky high and it was only as I prepare to go to bed that I realise that  I’ve been having an anxiety attack for the past three days. I’ve been trying to [...]

Making Priorities – The Climb #351

Sunday 7th January 2018 Today was the first time I needed to think about my priorities. 2018 is my year of priorities, it’s about ensuring that as I get busier that I focus on the important things and don’t worry so much about the minor stuff. And today there was a hard choice to be [...]

The Year Of The Offensive – The Climb #344

Sunday 31st December 2017 2017 was a funny old year.  It was my Year of the Offensive … a year for me to push myself and claim the rewards for my hard work.  As I said back then “it’s going to be a year where I happen to it rather than it happens to me”. [...]

Swordfighting Party – The Climb #342

Friday 29th December 2017 This holiday period has been quite hectic.  I’ve been surprising social over the last couple of weeks and I’m now getting to the stage where I want the rich food gone and a return to healthy eating and quiet nights in. That doesn’t mean I’m not enjoying it.  My body clock [...]

2018 : The Year of Priorities? – The Climb #333

Wednesday 20th December 2017 I've come to the conclusion that I spend too much time doing things for other people.  This is mostly my fault because I say yes when I’m being super-productive and can manage “all-the-things” but bites me in the ass when I’m run down or busy. Just taking a couple of weeks [...]

Burn Out – The Climb #332

Tuesday 19th December 2017 I’ve started feeling a bit better the last couple of days.  Sunday’s low day just made me realise just how run down I was. Looking back I can see just how swamped with tasks I’ve been since the end of August.  I found myself getting stressed out in September when it [...]
