Golf continued

So, I am getting right into the driving range thing. Yesterday, courtesy of a friend's kindness, I received a set of clubs (not a ladies set so the clubs were heavier and the grip thicker) that I tested out my new glove on, and had a lesson with.

It was a lot of fun and I am glad to say that despite hitting quite a few balls relatively quickly - at one point I think I was already halfway through the backswing whilst the ball was still being set - I have no aches or pains today. The lesson still focussed on the basics, but they are beginning to sink in - I think. Full swings feels fine, but the "training exercises" and half-swings feel very weird - I guess it is just one of those things that you get used to eventually.

Next time at the driving range I will try and be a bit more objective about how it is going.


New Year's Resolutions: March 2nd Results

My New Year's resolutions now stand at 6% achievement (up 1% from 2 weeks ago). 94% to go!!
  • My typing improved a good bit.
  • My finances went down a bit due to the recent China sell-off.
  • My fitness is probably better, but my next test piece is in a couple of weeks so I haven't updated that.
  • My bodyfat percentage is on its way down but there are still fluctuations (unfortunately, the last one I measure being a fluctuation the wrong way :-( . I don't think it was related to the couple of big nights out that were had just before...).
