Throws and Stick

Haven't been feeling the greatest for the past bit and went back to work last week which entailed daily traveling. It's been a week and a half since I've done anything and the AGM Backyard Throw is this coming Saturday so I'd better get at it.

Jim and Tony drove down from the city and we threw at the school by my house.

12.5# Hammer x 4 or so throws
22# Hammer 4 throws
16# BD Hammer 4 throws
16# MD Hammer 6-7 throws. Got a foot PR as well. I need lots of practice to stay consistent.

42 WFD 4-5 throws. Suckage. A good 10' short of where I should be. Practicing 2 spin has gimped my 1 spin technique and I'm no good at 2 spin yet either.

28 WFD 5-7 throws. Same as the 42.

David suggested I try Matt Vincent's 1 spin technique (about 1.25 spins).

12.5# Braemer throws. About 5

12.5# Shuffle/glide. About 7-8
