#Day45of100: Continuing my strength training with the bands on my bow bringing it up to 45# which equates to approx. 85% of my maximum. Weirdly shooting with the bands gave pretty solid results consistently getting golds for all 3 arrows on tri-spots!
#Day41of100: My second run I went further/faster than I should have gone in the time as I was running alone. Definitely felt it afterwards!
#Day42of100: The one club shoot indoors this week was not how I wanted it to go. While I definitely felt more in control of the shot, I simultaneously wasn’t with many shot wavering off in the same direction. Best not dwell and think about making next time better and stronger.
#Day43of100: So that’s week 1 of my #couchto5k endeavour. I’m sweaty and run too fast by myself. I need to control my pace better but other than that I’m enjoying it.
#Day40of100: If someone could find me a small indoor range I could use this winter that would be great. With nights drawing in and only 2 club nights indoors a week I’m forced into performing reversals!
#Day33of100: Spent the evening up the field getting it handed to me with @georginacutts shooting better 10s! Safe to say the new longbow works well.
When I wasn’t being beaten I shot the 2 main distances for indoor season, 18 and 30 meters. After massively reduced volume these past couple of weeks I’m very happy to see that I’m still able to put in some clean shots.
#Day29of100, #Day30of100, #Day31of100 and #Day32of100… I’ve spent my free time these past few days finishing @georginacutts longbow. I fitted the nocks, varnished and wrap and tied the grip leather. Last thing that was needed – a string!
During this longbow project I have learnt so much into what’s needed to be a bowyer and that’s a lot of patients is needed for all steps in the process. A lot of mistakes made, but I’m pleased with my first attempt. Onto the next one!
So I took a week off from archery at the end of the outdoor season and therefore paused the #100daysofprogresss for the #archeryproject.
#Day25of100: I went to pick up a bow to shoot this Sunday and it turned out to be club longbow day… one was thrust upon me and my recurve shunned.
It’s surprising how hard it was to anchor when no other aides are present and then execute a conscious release. Despite that, it was a lot of fun to chuck some sticks from another stick!

Centaura Bowmen’s ground is over an hour drive from home on a good day, so it would be an early start for us to make sure we got there in good time. It is a ground we know quite well, situated outside Derby. For those interested you can read a previous shoot report here.
As it was it would be a warm and pleasant early autumn day, with great company as we were joined by the…
