    Enjoy the comeback. At least league play isnt like practice-continually in motion, and you get a little rest inbetween frames. The strength will come....good luck!

    Nice shooting, but don't you have to kind of have 2 to do 1?

    Thumbs up

    I suppose so, but consistency week-in and week-out is the greater goal.

My problem is consistency. I was all over the place, but if I'm allowed to make excuses, I didn't bowl for 2 weeks..... if that counts. hahahaha.
    So far, so good! averaged a 194 last night. I'm pretty satisfied with that.

    So, we're two weeks into this goal (which will take the rest of the season to complete) and so far we've had:

    189
    194

    Not so good tonight.... How good? So good I can't even remember the exact scores. It was around a 185-133-212. The only know I know for sure was the 212. I figured my average at the lanes, and it came to be a 176-point-something, rounding up to 177 average for the night, which is 8 pins below where I would like to be.... Eh.... I was my own worst enemy tonight. I was too stubborn during that 2nd game.

    So, after 3 weeks (of about a million weeks left before fall season ends):

    189
    194
    177

    3 week average: 186 2/3

    On pace so far, for that 185 average, but I can't have many more nights like this one!

    My goals are:

    1- Continue improving timing and release - For some reason my timing was a complete mess at the start of the season. With the help of a friend and coach we found it was the first step

    2- Build a better/stronger mental game

    3- Continue to look at success in terms other than score

    4- Regain the confidence I lost over the past few years - If I am successful on 1 and 2, this will be a no brainer

    5- Bowl respectably at Nationals so my team won't put me on waivers for next year

    While I could probably add more, these are the top 5.
