It’s Been A While League Report 4

It’s been a while since I last posted. The reason is my very poor performance in the bowling league. I seem to be getting worse each week. My three game series scores for weeks 4 through 6 are 255, 271 and 297. Now that is bloody awful. We bowled against people who had similar scores in a single game! The negativity enveloped me. I couldn’t make myself write. Then to top it off, I hurt my back. I was whining so much my husband developed a sudden interest in the World Cup.

In the depths of my despair I did look online for help. Why do I bowl better sometimes? Why can’t I always perform at my best? Answer: I need to focus. “Focus” is a magic word. There are thousands of books on this subject. There are hundreds of coaches who sell their method to learn to focus in competition. There are tricks to use to get it and to keep it. If you have it, every game will be your best. Forget the world and just FOCUS dammit.

Even if I somehow get the focus thing down, though, it won’t be enough. I need lessons and advice. With that in mind I tried something. I wrote a letter to a bowling coach I had heard about. I asked the coach if there was a book or video that could help me. The coach responded. That alone was a shock. There was a good chance I would not hear a word. But I got a response! Sorry. No video. No book. But if I videotape myself bowling, the coach will review the tape and give me advice! Holy Cow. I can hardly wait. Video sessions are now on calendar.

In the meantime I tried to be more cheerful. I can’t lose heart now. It’s a whole year until the 2019 championships. Lo and behold my 7th week scores were great . . .well, good . . . well,  better. My high game was 129 and I had a 341 series. Woohoo.

Update:

My 8th week score was not terrible. My high game was 144 and the series was 311.
