Easy quick stones.
Hammer winds, no release. Working on mental cues.
 
BB and BW complexes.

Hammers - less than 15 throws, all 3 wind. Great breakthrough. Very pleased with the progress on this. A couple more sessions before Victoria maybe I'll break 100'. I hope...

Victoria Highland games.
First off, what an outstanding event, well run and attended. Shout out to Ray Siochowicz, Carl Jensen and everyone else that helped them for putting on such a great games. Cant wait for next year.
 
Hammers were ok. Nobody was throwing particurly well though.
HH 74'6" 3rd - this was within 1.5' of PR first event of the day, I'm ok with that
LH 90'5" 3rd - wanted more.
WOB 14' 3rd - Surprised myself on this. only 2nd time hitting 14'
Br 23'9" - this was like throwing a head, a big heavy head with no handle.
OS 32'8" - failed at spin, went to glide to try and get a decent mark
HWD 34' - First throw was garbage, 2nd throw lost out the side and took a tumble, Took the 3rd easy to get a decent mark. 9" off PR
LWD 47'6.5" - 1st throw was meh, 2nd and 3rd were great distance, easily over 50. Too bad I fouled both.
Caber - 11:45 - got all 3 turns. Thrilled with this since I only turned 1 all last year
Tied for 4th overall.
Know what I need to work on for B'ham

Have done three easy sessions since Victoria. Nothing big, upper, lower, upper with some conditioning for good measure. If the weather cooperates (total garbage all weekend) I'll get some throwing in today or tomorrow. Otherwise I'm looking forward to Bellingham this weekend and will try to make the clinic on Friday.

B'Ham games

Awesome job by Bret and Jay putting this event on. Everything was smooth, well run and enjoyed by everyone.

 
HWD 34'1" - 3rd  throw, no fouls today, good for me. I need to relax more. It always goes farther.
LWD 50'1.5" - Happy that I'm back over 50'. Need to relax more.
Br. 27'5.5 - Close to PR. Felt allright
Open St  34' 7.5" PR  2nd - I have abandoned the spin and will only glide. 2nd and 3rd throws were PRs
LH 91'11" 3rd - This is feeling better. Got some great help at the clinic on Friday by Ryan. Need to work on the release as I still have T-Rex arms.
WOB 14' 2nd - No misses till 15'. Came much closer to 15' hitting the bar twice. More legs.
Sheaf 20' - Need to make a 16# bag to practice with.
Caber meh - No turn
 
4th overall in some great competition. 3 weeks til BC

New grip is working out well, no problems taking that many throws. Worked on hitting positions and the finish. Hopefully hammers tonight or tomorrow morning.

Ummm, I've been doing... stuff. No really.

Been throwing every other day, 15 to 30 min, one event per day. Nothing hard, no full effort, just hitting positions and being consistant.  Havent been able to lift much as the shop is trashed. The by-product of my daughter coming home for the summer break. But I have done some BW work. I have been mowing excessively and went Mt biking.

In all, I feel good, strong and ready for BC this weekend.

BC Provincial Games.
Good weekend in Coquitlam. Karyn and Wade did an outstanding job with the games.
Weather was muggy all day and I never seemed to get everything firing on all cylinders.
 
Br.  24' 1.5" - should have got more.
OS  33' 2.5" - better than Br but i felt like 34' was there.
HH  70' 11" - Meh. Know I can do better. having trouble getting blades in and then kinda rushed the throw.
LH  90' 7" 3rd - Still hitting over 90' consistantly so I'm pleased with this. Still trouble with blades though.
HWD 34'3" / LWD 51'3.5" - Still getting over 34'/50' and I feel the form is improving on this.
WOB 13" -  Starting to feel gassed and couldn't get 14'
Caber - The suck. Same stick in Victoria and I couldn't get a single turn. I was pretty wiped out though.
Sheaf (20#)  18" - Same as WOB
4th overall on the day. I'll take it. There was some outstanding throwers on the field and as always I learned some new things.
