9-29-10: 22lb Braemar

9-29-10, Wednesday


-5 throws righty and 3 throws lefty.  Best throw righty was 19′.  Actually hit that distance 4 times in a row.  Other throw righty was 17’6″.  The 19′ was not as far as I was expecting but I’m feeling a bit rundown today so I hope that’s all it is.  Best throw lefty was 15’9″.  Other two throws were both 14’6″. 

My wife Carrie threw with me and she had 5 throws (all righty).  Best was 13’6″ which I told her was pretty good for a 22lb throw!  Her other throws were 13′, 11’6″, 12′, and 11’6″.  Just a quick session since we’re going to go out and throw in a friend’s field tomorrow (our 4-year wedding anniversary) before a nice picnic. 

Made the 22lb “stone” today by duct taping a bunch of stuff (including small weights) to my 15lb kettlebell.  Ugly and not very symmetrical, but it worked for our throwing workout. 

10 days until the Kirksville Highland Games!
