Finally a day Without Wind

Today was the first day in a week where I wasn’t trying to shoot in wind blowing at 25 mph. This morning – no white caps on the Little River. The sky was clear and the temperature rose to 78°F. Pretty darn nice.

Not a bad start

Per my current training plan I shot paper in the morning. Without the wind it was a pretty decent practice. Then, it was off the swim and lift weights.

Shoot an arrow, throw a stick

Swimming kicked my butt. The pool was crowded and along with other swimmers I was sharing a lane. Every lap became a silent unannounced contest – at least that’s how I perceived it.

River really enjoyed the day.

By the time I was back home I was dead. I’d been looking forward to 3D practice, but I was so beat I wondered how I’d make it through the session.

At 60 yards, the target is down range next to the far pine tree. Each arrow is a close pass with the oak tree. The little building behind the paddle board is where I grill or fry food.

Around 3:00 PM, after a few hours of work on my dock, I rallied and got in the 3D practice. Still no wind and shooting was pretty good. I finished up around 6:00 PM in time to grill chicken for our dinner fajitas.

At 60 yards, one foot is on the bulkhead.

I’ll admit, the swim did me in, and I am fried.
