Another 180 and a personal best!

Hi guys

I hit another cracking 180 today and hit a personal best in 100 at 20.

I hit 21 triples which beat my previous of 20, which

Since my back injury I've had to change everything from stance to grip, everything.

Ive moved to a Van Barneveld type from grip with his type of throw, along with standing far straighter than previous.

It's finally working and to be getting close to my personal best of 115pts is a real motivator for me.

I reckon I could have done it  tonight if I'd had 12 less errant darts.

Another integral part is that I've gone back to yoga for my back pain, issues and overall  flexibility and motility.

I genuinely recommend it guys!

My old pub team would have me back tomorrow and I'm hoping that if I can get back to a good standard I can rejoin, get competitive matches under my belt again and then start entering local tournaments.

Abywya I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the support guys

Update:22/11/2019 +180 with Target Keith Deller 21g

Hi guys

Ive been fortunate enough to be able to put in some practice the last few days.

Ive had 600 darts at 20 of which I've had:

180 x 1 (below)
140 x 5
120 x 3
100 x 17

I'm not counting sub 100s now.

It was also great to Christen my new 21g Target Keith Deller's

Ive always had a soft spot for Keith Deller. Think he's so underated and had probbaly the best WC title run ever in beating the top 3 seeds, all 3 World champions (and legends)  in 1983

Anyway I'm hoping I can still hit my goals for this before years end (still a month or so left)

On that subject the back is still bad. Perpetual discomfort and random pain or foot burning.

Tbh, I'm grateful I can even hit the board nowadays

As states before if your back goes.... DON'T BE FOBBED OFF. LEAVE IT OR LET THEN DISMISS IT!!!!!

if you do you could be opening yourself up to perpetual, pain, uncomfortability or worse!

Take care everyone

2/10/2019: update on progress and 180!

Hi guys

In an effort to try and kick start something I have gone back to the first set of darts I ever had, a set of Simon Whitlock gen 1 in 24g.

I remember buying these and a set of 25g atomised ted Hankeys when I first got into it as I thought those guys looked like great characters (still do)

Progress back has been slow but hit a 180 tonight

The problem is consistency, I just don't have it.

13/09/2018: update on progress and recovery

Hi guys

Well after 5 months the specialists have reviewed me and I'm now down to bulging discs.

The nerve issue is a waiting game. Could be month or never before my left foot works again!.

Anyway, onto the darts. Today I recorded 102 PTS  at 100 darts at 20.  My best in probay a year or more (best is 115).



So 14 triples in total.

With only 26 misses for an accuracy of 74%.

At the moment I'm still only good for 100 darts before the pain kicks in but its heartening that I can still hit 100+.

Anyway thank you for your support and kind words, I'll keep you posted

The road to recovery: week 1 update and a 180!

Hi guys

As I await my MRI in August, to stave off the utter feeling of uselessness I've set myself a few small targets as I try to recover.

Obviously the MRI will potentially tell me what I need to do (I don't want major spinal surgery!)  and I'm hoping extensive long-term rehab is the answer (I'm stretching an hour a day) however I've set myself some little darts goals to achieve by xmas:

1. Hit another 180
2. Best my precious of 100 at 20 (which was 115 in October 2018)
3. Hit an average over 70 in a match
4. Practice at least 1 hr a week
5. Hit under  15 darter

At the moment I can only manage about 100 darts and 15 minutes a day before my body plays up.

It's only week 1, however my best at 100 at 20 is 92.

I did hit a peach of a 180 though:

So goal 1 achieved.

Not bad for a guy who rattles due to so many meds and an atrophied leg 8).

The plan is to try and do 15 minutes a day build up, and see where it takes me.......hopefully better than ever!

All the best
