With my outdoor season being complete and the indoor season still a month or two away, it’s time to take a bit of a break from training to recharge and rebuild a little. While I’m going to keep shooting, it just won’t be as much as usual. I will instead focus more on physical training as well as getting a few things done around the house that we have been putting off; mainly renovating the basement. Coincidently, that just happens to work out well as physical training!
When Norm and I moved in to our first home a couple years ago, one of the first things we wanted to do was to fix the basement. There were a few issues that ended up convincing us to tear out most of the semi-finished basement to correct them. I had been slowly picking away at it, but had to stop for the summer because of my injury. Finally, I have been able to get back at it and have made some good progress. It’s a lot of work, but demolition can be rather satisfying! Of course, we could always use some extra help; let me know when you’re available 😀
In archery related news, I’ve been shopping around for some new arrows. I’m planning on going up in draw weight in the Spring, and I would like to upgrade my arrows to something of a little higher quality. This has mostly involved talking to other archers at tournaments, online, and at clubs to see what their experiences have been with various products. I think I have decided to go with Easton A/C/E shafts, but I’m not quite 100% sure yet. There is still the matter of trying to figure out the proper spine (stiffness) and point weight too. Thankfully, I have found some amazingly knowledgeable people that have been giving me some great advice!
I’m thankful for all the time I’ve had this summer to be able to dedicate to training, but I’m still unemployed and there are bills to pay. If anyone in the archery / computer programming industries is hiring, please let me know!
