56lb WFD and Braemar 16lb Shot

11-15-10, Monday


-7 throws.  All were sub-par.  Foot-faulted on the first throw and it was only 15′.  The workout went downhill from there.  15′ – 15’10” – 15′ – 17’1″ – 17’4″ – 16’3″ – 14’6″.  Knew it was time to throw in the towel probably after the 1st throw to be honest.  But I kept at it hoping that I might get my form figured out today and hit something that wasn’t over 2 feet below my best throw. 


-6 throws with both hands.  Beat my old PR by 9″ righty!  Will only list righty throws.  24’4″ – 25’3″ – 26’1″26’7″26’1″26’3″.  Had 4 throws that were over my previous best.  Very happy with this increase since my HWFD throws sucked.  Finally broke the 26′ barrier.  Been quite a while since I increased my Braemar PR with the 16lb shot.  

Today was a perfect example of salvaging a bad workout by switching to something else and sticking with it regardless of how it turns out.
