What a busy month has passed competing, training and working. Fun busy times. The opportunity to train Sport Pistol has been fantastic, and really makes me understand why I love this sport of shooting.
With selection for the European Championships getting ever closer and the opportunities for two GB qualification scores to be attained at two different competitions, time is of the essence. With very few competition opportunities there's no room for error which really puts the pressure on. Especially when all you want to do at the beginning of the season is develop your skills, and after this comes match tactics.
Our first domestic competition of the season was cancelled in March due to the range not functioning, (really not helpful!) so April saw my first two competitions at Bisley. Closely followed by another in Hannover Germany.
At this point (2 months into the season) my skills are getting honed in the right direction but there's now need for match tactics to come into play. At the end of the day, you only win on the day of competition-not at your training ground.
