toilet training [if you've done it you'll know it]
Toilet Training 2020
Okay! We have 89 training circuits in the books! And eight separate participants.
I sounds easier than it is: Run to the toilet like you really gotta go, run back to the range and shoot prone. Run back to the toilet again, run back to the range and shoot off-hand. Step off the mat and call TIME! Gotta love the relay rounds, though some days it may feel like it'd be faster to throw them at the targets...
Here are some details, loving the diversity of records and participation, good stuff! Anyone can time their training and send along to me and I will add it to the database.
Then we can see how you improve! Are you trying to speed up range time? Prove it. Spending more time in offhand? Let's see if it pays off. Hammering the toilet course? Let's see if your shooting holds up.
Toilet Training - when you really gotta go!
Great job posting the results. ⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪
This is a glimpse of my thinking about balancing the three race components: course time / range time / shooting accuracy
The goal is to make it "anybody's race" driving competition and "skin in the game" to improve on all facets:
These practice sessions are definitely a lot if fun! It is indeed anybody's race.
Okay, this was a slippery course and run times were a bit slower than usual but shooting was decent and some fast times were posted.
Four racers in two heats, Sal left us flat in the first heat, cleaning.. and posting the fifth fastest course time! Also notable, Maggie improved her range time markedly in the second heat, which saw three racers finish only seconds apart!
We now have 111 results from 35 heats, and a decent set of statistics to learn from. One theme is that fast range time is important, and though hard to prove, may be true that consistent range procedures can lead to less time in the range and consistent shooting (less time in the penalty lap).
Enjoy the stats attached below.
Here's what is really impressive, Don cleaned offhand in just 44 seconds!!! He's upped the course record again.
Wind and cold, exactly what we need to train in. Good times, three circuits with four participants. Sal and I tied in the second circuit! Also, Sal ran the first leg in 44 seconds. I had to check the clock twice. He has been sand bagging us.
Also included, take a look at how Maggie has improved her range times, when she started, in her first 6 circuits her average shooting time was 130 seconds. After grinding out some practice circuits, her last four circuits average range time was 94 seconds. Solid progress.
Sal and the gang are continuing the toilet training fun, and posting some impressive results! This round I want to spot light the progress of Paul B. Paul is modest and persistent. That means he can sneak up on you, which is exactly what he's done, right Sal?
Here are the race results, there were three stand out efforts, which were reasonably close to the record time, and to our credit they were three different competitors! Sal, Maggie, and Paul posted some legit fast course times.
Here are some trends for Paul, who probably wishes I didn't spotlight them, but we can all benefit from seeing what steady effort and progress looks like.
Thank you for the results Don. The bar graphs are very informative. Thank you for going the extra mile.
Back at it, new results:
Here are some summary tables from the history so far:
