Well that’s embarrassing! 😁

Never been a good runner, even when playing football. My old nickname in the football team used to be the ping pong lung as I was always the one who needed to be subbed first.

If I can find a 5k route which is more flat I think I can push myself to 4.30 in the end if I keep this up. The hills are killing me!
🤣
Funny enough, I'm a slow sprinter but although I never went running 🏃 for fun, I'd always come in about 5th or so out the whole year when we did cross country at school.
If you can beat 25 mins, you can get to 22.30 if you keep working 👍👍

Mine came very quick too mate

11 months is a long time to wait 😉😁🤣

Being serious, I caved and ordered.
Cheers @MendieGK 👍
Did any of you get any tracking links from them when it was on it's way?

I've only received an email on Tuesday saying that my order is "Complete", which I assume is that they've only packed it their side, cause it hasn't arrived here. But no tracking link.

UPDATE: And 10 min after posting this I received a text from DHL about delivery of my parcel. Timing. :)

A new aspect of my training has been introduced. My wife releases my 8yr old son from home schooling as soon as I am in the garden. He then proceeds to talk non stop for the duration of my net session and virtual round.
I am learning how to dip in and out and close down and concentrate on the shot on hand. Plus I am learning about zombie villagers, creepers, bows with knock back on etc .. fingers crossed my head doesn’t explode!

I bought a net during the last lockdown which saw a fair bit of use first time around. Like a few others have mentioned you don't get very good feedback on ball flight etc. Seems I had ingrained a slice that took me weeks to get back under control once golf was resumed.

This time I'm concentrating on fitness with the Fit for Golf App.

It will end up with him chasing me around and hitting me with a diamond sword with every enchantment on .. usually teleports to me and hits me ☹️ ... must get this violence from his mother, I am a gentle person from head to toe.

LOL. Was so excited to get the Speed Stick delivered to day, and the company gave DHL the WRONG delivery address, so it's been delivered - just not to me. :mad:
Update!

The company put my address down as 1364 to DHL, rather than 1346...

The lady in her 60s living there didn’t have a clue what a speed stick was so she happily complied and handed the package over to the rightful owner.

First session done. Felt a bit short but when you think about it it’s 51 full out swings, so probably more than enough.

When did you order? I ordered Wednesday, and aside from my PayPal confirmation I've heard nothing.
Ordered Monday, received the PayPal confirmation directly and then a "order complete" on Tuesday and DHL text yesterday. Guess you should receive the order complete email today or Monday am at latest. Otherwise I'd call them up. I did it yesterday when I was chasing my parcel and the guy answered directly and seemed to be easy to deal with.

Short but good gym session today.

Started the now obligatory back stretches (I HATE STRETCHING 😢😅), followed by sets of squats, which although I also hate, I strangely quite like as I know they are much needed.

A few minutes more leg and back stretching, which I hated, followed by a 5km walk/run/walk/sprint/walk /run etc etc....which I hated from the first to the last step.

Can only be good for golf ⛳... I hope 🤔🤷‍♂️😅

Yeah I got that this afternoon, fingers crossed the net arrives this weekend, and then the sticks arrive next week.
