2011 Highland Games Goals

Next games most likely won’t be until around April of 2011.  So I’ve got plenty of time to get stronger and more technically proficient in the events that I’m able to train.  I won’t be training the caber or the sheaf since I don’t have the implements to work on either of those.  That’s not a big loss really at this stage in my development. 

I will try to throw the hammer once a week even in the winter months.  But in reality, that’s probably going to be reduced to throwing the hammer once every 10 days or so. 

Will be throwing my 56lb HWFD as much as my body can handle.

Not sure yet whether I’ll get back to my USAWA competition training anytime soon.  I haven’t lost the appetite for those by any means.  Just not at the forefront of my focus right now.
