Hey all,
I have been away for awhile, but I think I mentioned my most recent training was all focused on getting ready for my first attempt at Scottish Highland Games

I WON!! Firsts on each of seven events and the overall.

And I managed NOT to fall on my butt on the weight for distance events...(this was a serious consideration...;^)

Weight training started in Nov last year. Throwing training started around March'ish with weights. Then about two weeks ago I went most of a week with just throwing.

Then a week off to recover and stretch out.

So I have now been banned from the C class and will be competing in the B class next time out. But even if there is an event in August...I think I want to train a bit more before I may not see another competition till next year.

BUT THIS I GREAT!!! I have never won the whole thing before!!! I have taken heats and divisions...but never the big prize of first overall!


(ps...just a bit more class included high schoolers, one a football player and a couple of twenty somethings...and I am pushing 39 in a few months. The OLD guy won!!!)
