Foggy morning in C-bus

Standing Throws 28′ 6″ with 16lbs shot and 25′ 6″ with 29lbs stone

Open Stone 31′ with 16lbs shot

HWFD 19′

LWFD 40′

Heavy Hammer 73′

Light Hammer 87′

Sheaf 6 throws

WOB 6 throws

Caber 3 attempts

Notes: Concentrating on getting my standing stone put sorted out. Weights for distance felt rushed, as if I was not in sync with the weight. Footing may have been partially at fault. Ground was very soft. Hammers felt like I was picking up good speed. Did not use blades. By the time I got to sheaf and WOB, I was feeling pretty drained. Caber is getting close. In the next couple months, I am going to work drills for a specific throw each day rather than just doing full throws.
