Hwfd 38' 3" 1st really want to hit 40 just can't break that bearrier.
Lwfd 67+ think I got inched out but got to throw extras and hit 72' 8" not happy with the first three throws
Light hammer not very good at all 114' was my best took 2nd just felt crappy was hoping for a lot better
Caber- 1st place, I turned it on in caber first 2 throws both 12's 3rd was a 12:30 then on challenge caber first throw was a 10:30 or 11 adn on the 2nd I nailed a 12!
Sheaf 1st place, 32' with a 20lb bag went to 34' and I was real close on first 2 throws
Wob 14' 2nd - not happy with this I'm all over the bar at 15 and just not getting it right still working on my new form to help straighten out my trajectory.

Always have a great time at this game and they take care of the athletes thanks to everyone for another great games in Altamont.

What can I say what a weekend!  Got there on Sat about 1 got to the field and first thing hopped in a truck with Kenny, Tony and Berby to grab some stones to hold the ladder for the sheaf toss.

Then watched some great throws by the pros and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson throw the 56 over the bar friggin awesome stuff fun day to actually get to sit back and watch..

Sun Morning:

Time to throw first was Braemar not that great I think 35+ second place
Open stone  fowled my first and sure was my best then back off and not even sure what I threw think it was only a 44+ again second
HWD didn't show up for this one think I got a 35+ second again
LWD not bad but not my best finished with a 71+  second again

At this point Duncan is kicking my ass he is throwing really good (he doesn't think so) but he is throwing great I knew I had to pull my head from my ass and lock down the caber
and I did just that first throw 11:45 followed by 2 12:00  after my first throw JVG steps up like a beast and drops a twelve  for 2nd then Carlton on his last throw get an 11:30 for 3rd great throws by both guys duncan has a little trouble ends up 4th doors are opening, going into WOB a very inconsistent event for me all I can think is all I want is 15' today and no matter how it goes I'll be happy and I got it highlight of my day and the first time this year I made 15 Duncan is nailing the bar at 15 and just gets no roll went for 15' 6" and came damn close.  On to the final event, sheaf just hoping I can pull it off went up clean until 34 or 35' 6 think it was 34' 6" know I can make this height both myself and Duncan are still in I was smashing the bar just not getting over we both miss all 3 and tie Duncan get the win on more first place finishes... WHAT A BATTLE! Awesome job Duncan had a blast was a bit upset with myself after that last throw so I noticed the bar was still set at same height so I grabbed my fork to another try and bam easily over the bar, oh well crowd liked it and got that out of my system.  Duncan great Job and I hope we get to share the field again someday also looking forward to training with you at some point now that your in New Hampshire, I think about an hour south.  On to strongman training

Wow I haven't posted on here since 2014! So lets get started.  Since the last post I got old and broken but I'm on the comeback trail and getting ready to compete at Quechee, I noticed one of my post on here I got my LWD PR at Quechee 76' 5" I can gurantee I won't be hitting that.  SO the arm is healed and getting used to throwing again and the Back is better than it's been in a long time but I'm finding my legs haven't got a lot weaker from not squatting and no deadlifting than I had thought so it is affecting my throwing although they seem to be getting strong pretty quick I have a ways to go.  So you ask what have I been doing mostly throwing now that I can I waas doing mostly upper body so that feels good and my form in the throws still needs more work to get the rust off but I'm really happy to be headed back onto the field, hope to see ya out there.

I'm super excited!! Can't wait to see everyone this weekend and to throw!  I'm glad we aren't doing hammers really not ready for that yet. 

So training stuff did my morning routine stretch then planks will be doing some reverse hypers before and after caber and may do a little sheaf practice.

Lunch break throwing was caber went well felt good little rusty but pulled a 12 so can't really complain there.  Then WOB again nothing crazy got some good pulls getting the form back.  Feeling good about this weekend I don't have any expectations and just want to have a fun day on the field!
