Thursday was an off day. I’ve been shooting a lot while trying to hit the target with my new bow. It has been a challenge – one that I’ve not yet surmounted.
Taking the day off is always stressful. If you’re competitive you may understand. It’s easy to fall into the thinking that more is better, when in fact a day off is a necessity.
Because I didn’t shoot on Thursday, I had time to review my progress as an archer. Scores, form, sponsorship, financial breakdown and equipment maintenance are on the list of items I consider or look over when taking a break from the physical aspect of the sport.
My summary made a few things clear: I’m going to need to add the long stabilizers and scope to compete for money. I need more sponsors. I need to win more and bigger events.
