Glad you're enjoying the archery (and doing pretty well at it by the sound of it!). It's on my current hobby to-do list - tried it in scouts when I was a kid but haven't had a look since.

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

You may actually get me to go take archery lessons like I said I was going to in one of my first challenges. It sounds like a lot of fun even if it's been a little painful!

 

Week 2 at the range (after bruises had mostly faded), and I did JUST FINE!!  I had spend the week practicing holding out my arm with the inner elbow rotated IN and NOT UP .... shoulders DOWN.  Spend some time looking at form videos online.  And Sunday, I dinged my elbow once, which was my signal that I was getting tired.  

 

With good form, I'm not always hitting the target at 20 yards, but that will come.

Archery seems awesome. It is on my list of things to do. Unfortunately, it will probably have to wait until spring. I'm excited to see how you progress with it!

 

 

Love that Corgi, but I do have to wonder what's going on in it's brain there!!!

Heyoo, fellow Alliance Party Member! I love your theme and your goals, and it looks like you're performing marvelously so far! Especially eager to hear of your archery progress!

 

Burpees!  Why did it have to be burpees????

Glad the archery are going so well. Missed you :love_heart:

 

Thanks!!!  I've been a bit AWOL because I was wrestling with the option of quitting my job.  Yeap. The one I've had for 4 months.  

 

I came to the conclusion that it was not only a bad fit for me but just a bizarre office with a manager who is either clueless or cruel.  

 

Not sure what I'm going to do with the extra 12 hours per day, but I'm sure I will find something to do.  (My bow and my running shoes are calling me even now ....)

You have put in a lot of effort to make your position productive and resolve the issues with your colleagues. Good for you for deciding that your good faith effort failed and it is time to get out.

 

I'll bet you get a lot done with an extra 12 hours a day. I wanted to pick up archery again this summer, but just don't have time until after my next test. Enjoy the summer!
