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
