    #67: Offseason

    This week on the podcast, I talk about shooting my first match in two months, and how moderate expectations led to a good performance. I also go into why I think an offseason isn't that important early in your shooting career, and becomes more valuable the more you practice.

    Taking a Break

    Taking a Break

    Hey folks, Ben here.


    I just wanted to put the word out that I'm taking a break from Short Course for a while. I'm not sure exactly how long.


    Since I started doing the first test episode in November 2017, I've always kept myself to a schedule so I'm all in or all out. episode every week, or nothing.


    But right now I'm not shooting very much and so I don't have that much to say. So I'm gong to take some time away from the podcast and scale back my matches to create a little space to think and figure out what to do next.


    The only goal of the podcast was to have a place to get whatever is on my mind on tape and out of my head. And over the years the kind notes I've gotten from you listeners are much appreciated.


    I've always tried to make every episode non-specific to current event so feel free to explore the archive while I'm gone.


    If you need to get in touch, you know where to find me.


    Talk to you next time.
