    Ok I just got back and am sipping a cuppa as I write this.

    Today was much better, I was not alineing the string in the same place each time until I realised it, but that is a form lapse rather than being tired etc, best of all no string slaps 😄

    I shot my normal 100 arrows and only had about 8 very bad shots, a some wobbly ones but thatís normal for me

    Fatigue can be a key component of form lapses... One of the arguments for overdoing it, every now and again, is to learn how to maintain form (or at least cope with the lapses) under fatigue conditions...
    A similar argument can be made for shooting in lousy weather conditions (though I can't claim to be in the "hey, the weather's awful! Great! Let's get some bad weather practice in..." enthusiast group )

    I remember deliberately shooting in the rain when I was trying for MB. It was good to learn how the shooting changes when wearing wet weather gear, for example. Wet bow hand, and tab, and string. Shooting 12 dozen was a must. It all seemed like a challenge worth accepting, all those years ago.
    These days getting the cams wet is not something I fancy; so for the bow's sake I shoot in nice weather.

    I donít mind a little dusty drizzle but real rain is a no no for me, more so for my dad as he suffers from chest problem so itís very bad for him.

    I think the reason my form can be a bit wobbly in some aspects of it is that Iím still quite new to recurve, there is less to think about when I was shooting compound so Iím still learning the new things I have not had to worry about before.

    I just have to check string alignment every time I draw as itís not ingrained in memory/ muscle memory yet, itís one of them things that if I donít think about is easy to forget.

    My release is getting better, so thatís one battle half won.

    We shot in heavy rain a while back - weirdly I got a PB that still stands (and it was actually not bad) but I completely trashed my arrows, my sight was a mess and it knackered my wrist release. So while I'll run, cycle and surf in any weather, archery is for good(ish) weather only for me.
