finally dusted off the Matthews
« on: July 29, 2016, 08:58:07 PM »
I don't know if I mentioned it, but I messed up my elbow back in May. it was killing me during my musky trip and anything else I would do. there were night I couldn't sleep. I finally decided to see if I could shoot. if not, it was time for the doc and some cortisone shots. missing bow season isn't an option if I can help it. well, I went 25 for 25 bulleyes at 20 yards. not a lot of X's, but I was more than happy for the 1st time out. it felt OK considering I haven't lifted weights for 2 months. I definitely need to get some strength back.

hopefully, the elbow has turned the corner. it's been a rough summer. if I would only remember I wasn't still 25 years old, i'd be a lot better off :-)

shoot straight all. my season is 6 weeks away. time to dial in and get serious

I tell my wife since I'm 25x2 that must mean I'm twice as good as I was back then.  She don't buy my logic . . . go figure.   --099-780

Glad you're gonna be able to shoot this bow season, just don't over do practicing and re-injure it

That's pretty good shooting for the first shots of the year.  I plan on bringing my Mathews out of the basement this weekend

Just take it easy.  A couple of arrows a day are better than  a bunch at one time. Several years ago I had a bulging disc "C6"  I struggled to shoot my bow.  It made my left arm weak not to mention the constant pain.  A couple of shots and a few years of healing I am better.  Good Luck

Is that tennis elbow?  I injured mine in November last year and rested it up for 9 months of no tennis.
Try also using an arm band, wrap just below your elbow.  This has helped mine and prevented re-injuring it.
Good shooting!!              %^$^

I hurt it stripping caulk from my picture windows that were leaking. it hurt while I was ripping it out, but I just needed to get it done. that was May I think. I did buy a band for my forearm. seems to help a little. i'm sure it's just going to take time. thx

Take it slow for awhile and build up the muscle strength. Don't want you to go down before you get out of the gate. I have osteoarthritis in my left shoulder. (yes, I am old enough to have it) and am due for a routine follow up visit with my orthopedic doctor in a couple of weeks. Might be looking for a cortisone shot again as well. It's been painful off and on so I will see what they recommend. Usually have one before archery season.
