Rig, that's an ominous sounding brand name for golf balls - exactly where you don't want them to land! NM, it's a relief to know I'm not the only sportsperson who is a danger to others rather than herself.

I haven't yet thrown my disc in the river, but today it did end up in the shrubbery on the far side of a bog. It also landed behind a tree, deep in grass, over a hill, past a basket...I'm sure you get the idea. I am getting plenty of exercise chasing after it.

At the gym I have had a lesson on using the free weights, this is going to increase the challenge and hopefully improve everything about my body, haha.

In my younger days I played golf regularly with a group of senior citizens. Those old dudes beat the crap out of me every week. They couldn't hit the ball very far, but they were deadly straight with drives and good putters. 2-3 shots to reach the green, many 1 putts. I could hit the ball much further but never straight. Perhaps you might try their technique on your disc game by shortening the drives up to get better accuracy.

Yes, this is the exact advice I have received from one of our best players.  Use my more stable disc and develop my consistency.  I did a whole round with it one time, and I'll try it again next time.

Meanwhile, all the guys (I'm the only female so far), are in awe of the older man they just met who can flick his disc with apparently minimal effort and have it fly 100metres.

I’m so glad you are having fun with your disks. Yes, wrist technique on throwing can be huge.

So nice to be surrounded by men....sometimes.  Like my DSs softball team.  

Glad you are enjoying your play.  Very important.

I have never tried disc golf but it looks like so much fun! Lots of skill needed I'm sure!

Six hour hike.  Didn't quite achieve our goal to join two different ends of a through route.  
Got home cold and wet, tired, hungry, thirsty, and contented.

I have loved tramping best. But now disc golf is up there too.

Thanks Pam. Yes, I'm really happy because it's something my DH and I can both enjoy together. Neither of us is doing it just to please the other, we both love it. It's making the empty nest adjustment much more enjoyable.

Oh how I forget the empty nest. Long time ago for me and I did it alone.

Annieh, How awesome to be certified as a personal trainer!! That’s great knowledge to have under your belt. Disc golf…now I have to look that up!

Your hikes sound heavenly. Wink With your descriptions I imagine how it must feel to see the pristine white all around the wilderness as I trudge in powder. Lovely photo. So beautiful. Very fortunate to have this as your back yard

HFF, thankyou for reading back over past entries, and thank you for your positive comments.

Cooked a meal for seven yesterday, not much remains.  I had almost forgotten how much young people  can eat - especially when they have spent a day moving furniture and climbing mountains (the men), and creating a wedding dress (the women).  

The menu: Slow cooker beef in herbs and red wine, crispy potato cubes, roast pumpkin, green peas, simple fresh coleslaw with cabbage, carrot, mint leaves, lime juice and peanut oil, with my daughter's delicious stuffed mushrooms with onion and blue cheese and goodness knows what else.

For dessert one of the girls bought the ingredients, read me the recipe and made the sauce for a sticky date pudding.  It was said to serve 12 but I can tell you there was none left.

It was such fun to have my house full, and the guests finished feeling like "fat happy cats", and I quote.

Today we better work it all off with a game of disc golf.  

Also, desperately needed to get back to the gym, which I did.  It was almost deserted because it was such a beautiful day outside.

Workout #23. I have grown stronger, faster and have gained at least 1kg. Time to switch up my routine (and my diet) and burn some fat.

Five hour tramp yesterday, just enough really.

The tramp should burn some fat.

Congrats on the strength gains. Awesome.

1 kg gain sounds like a fair trade off for faster/stronger.
As some wag once said about college football here "Bigger, stronger, faster may not always win, but it is the way to bet."

Well, thanks, Shelley. My latest doings are really super dooper boring though.

On the basis of my current first aid certificate, I have been conscripted to look after the emergency phone at the local polytechnic while the nurse is on leave. The fact that I have literally zero first aid experience is irrelevant because the students are also absent and so the chances of anyone actually calling this number are remote.

Therefore some other tasks have been sent my way. I guess I would call them data entry - generating reports from a student survey, and creating a new survey. Goodness me, now I believe I understand why my niece has resigned her office job without any future plans beyond a spot of dog walking and car grooming. How do any of you who do computer work stand it????????????

As Ontario put it over in Pedi's journal, some of us have "Social Anxiety Disorder." Too much people interaction and I am totally drained! Computers are my friend. Smile Seriously, do make sure you get up every hour or so and move around.
