First throws of the season!

Last Friday I took my first throws of the 2010 season. My last throwing session was nearly 3 months ago, and I picked up just about where I left off. I took 10 throws with the 16lb hammer, the lowest being about 61 meters, the farthest being 64.90m. If you look down at my training PR's on this page, I'm not far off. The last month of the season last year I thought I made some big technical advances, and while I didn't throw over the last 3 months, I did do a lot of reflecting about technique, and why things got better in June. This apparently paid off as my best throw was about 4-5 meters better than I've ever started off the season. Should be an exciting year!
