I want to try to do another distance day at an open park like hawthorne again. perhaps if the winds are less than 700 mph we cna learn something. It is always helpful to throw other people's plastic as well as getting reps in.

saturdays are out for me, how about a sunday in early November?

No cost, no prizes, no competition just a few dudes and dudettes out throwing for fun and distnace gain.

Sounds good to me as long as it isn't Thanksgiving weekend.
I can bring my cache of discs to share.

This was a lot of fun, despite the wind, last time. Lance even taught me how to x-step. I'd be in for joining you all - about the only weekend that doesn't work for me is Nov. 21-23 - the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Maybe if Troy comes, we'll see how his bag toss measures up to his drives....

Could we do November 16th at Raymond Park in the afternoon?

Raymond Park is just really long and flat, so it is ideal for distance measurements.

Afternoon because many of us have prior commitments in the morning on Sundays.

I'm just throwing a date out there. If anyone has a better one, post it.

just a friendly reminder that distance day is tomorrow. I will be at raymond at about 2:00 and measure out some distances and mark them off for the world to see. the weather forecast looks good.

Don't forget to bring your whole bag, you trade bag, your "C" bag and any collectibles that you don't want to collect anymore.

I don't remember raymond's layout very well so I can't say exactly where to meet, but that's your problem.

I will personally reward everyone that throws a shot over 400 feet.

that's what she said.

Thanks to Lance for setting things up yesterday. That was fun! While my forehand drive is getting better, my backhand drive has suffered a setback - I experience pain in my shoulder each time I throw a hard backhand. I'm just trying to rest it, hoping it'll heal over time. Anyone had any injuries like that before? I think I messed it up a while ago at Bengal, throwing a big overhand shot.

Yeah! I know what you're feelin! I threw a tomahawk off hole 4 at ross and made my shoulder kick my butt for almost 5 weeks. But, on the possitive side: I made night and day diffrence in my fore-arm game and learned the benefits to a good back-hand game.

I took it easy on it and let it rest. Some vitamins work good for helping heal too!

Overhand throws are a very unnatural position for the arm. What often happens when one hurts their shoulder with an overhand throwing mechanism results from a muscle imbalance. Since the shoulder is capable of moving in so many planes of motion it is prone to injury. The forward movement of the arm during an overhead throw is high speed internal rotation (among other movements). The internal rotator muscles are large and it takes the external rotators to decelerate that motion - the external rotators are weak in comparison. When people work out they tend to focus on large muscle groups such as internal rotators (lats) and ignore the small ones such as the external rotators and muscles of the rotator cuff. I am sure your biggest problem is a lack of scapular (shoulder blade) control and weak external rotators. I would recommend looking into the "Throwers 10" program (Google it) that is used as a rehab tool by many overhead athletes to regain strength in your rotator cuff and scapular muscles. I would lay off throwing overhand especially and backand if it is bothersome. Ice is good if it hurts (not heat) and if it doesn't get better go see a doc, especially a sports medicine specialist or orthopaedic surgeon. It sound like you could have some rotator cuff problems and perhaps even a labral problem or biceps tendon issues. Are you experiencing any clicking, catching, or popping Question Have you ever dislocated in the past Question

I could go on but then I would just make yself sound even more dorky Embarassed Is that clear as mud Question

Thanks for the insight, Scott. I used to play baseball and never had any shoulder problems at all. I broke my right (throwing arm) collar bone in college completely in half. No surgery, they just let it heal. As a result, my right collar bone is a little shorter than the other side. Ever since that, I do have some "clicking" - I notice this mostly when lifting - shoulder presses in particular. It was never painful until the last few months - I swear I can almost remember the culprit throw - a big hammer drive on #10 at Bengal. I think I'm going to rest for a while. I remember you (I assume it was you) mentioning the "Thrower's 10" workout in a previous thread and was thinking that it might be a good idea to ease in to that after a nice rest period.

Injuries suck. Suck, suck, suck...and then they suck some more.
