11-8-10: 56lb Weight For Distance (9″ PR!)

11-8-10, Monday


-7 throws.  6 of those were with the standard style and only one was the modified style.  Looks like the modified style has already ran out of length for me.  I need more of a wind-up and the standard style gives me that.  Broke my previous PR twice in this workout!  Not massive increases, but one was 9″ over my previous best.




-19’2″…beat my previous PR by 2″

-16’9″…modified style, felt very awkward today


-19’9″!…focused on getting a longer, smoother pull and it paid off with a better throw.  20′ is just around the corner.

*Overall Notes: Want to give a big thank-you to Craig Smith – a Highland Games pro – who’s given me some help on the NASGA forum!
