The long road home

1 September 2018 – 90 arrows

I have been out of shooting for a while focusing instead on coaching and judging but hassling moved to a new club and losing a lot of my previous commitments has opened me up to shooting.

Having decided to start shooting again I had to remind my self to follow the advice that I dish out to every returning archer “take it slow or you will hurt yourself”.

With that in mind I found out my light limbs and a club bow. Alternating each end is somewhat hard to keep track of but allows me to both build my strength and technique without over exerting myself.

My main focus is on my loose. It was always a problem for me when I was shooting and coming back it’s one of the things that I want to make sure is correct right at the start.

I am also hoping that by using my back properly to do my loose I will put less strain on my shoulder which I have had issues with in the past.

Just a short blog for today.
