You Win Some, You Lose Some

Well, it wasn’t what I planned. It wasn’t part of my visualization. It was not how I’d trained.  I wasn’t even close. But, hey – there’s always 2019.

For months I worked, practiced and trained through all sorts of weather. I shot on average 120 arrows per day. All in preparation for one archery tournament. It wasn’t so much that I wanted to win. Although I did want to win. More than that, I wanted to hit a specific score. I was on track to do so…..

Then, we moved and for six weeks before the USA Archery Indoor Nationals in Snellville, GA practice was impinged.

When I did get to practice I was off. My scores dropped and have remained low. There seems to be a relationship between practice and scores.

If the National tournament hadn’t been so close to our new home I’d have skipped it entirely. The event was just 40 minutes away from our new home. So, I went and I lost.

Second Place

Soon practice and routines will be back in place. And before you know it, it will be 2019.
