Baby Steps

I’ve been away from the pool room for some time now, but today I headed back to California Billiards for a very short practice session.  I wasn’t mentally prepared for a highly structured session, so it quickly degenerated into me throwing balls out on the table and pocketing them.  *Sigh*  Where did my discipline go?  I need structure!  Maybe this weekend I’ll put together a small notebook that contains all my practice shot setups and take it with me wherever I go.  That way, there are no excuses for lack of structure in the future.  Speaking of this weekend, there’s a WorldPPA tournament at California Billiards on Saturday and Sunday.  There’s a part of me that wants to play in it, and another part that just wants to take it easy and slowly get back into the grove.  Maybe I’ll be there, maybe I won’t.  Who knows?

  1. I’ve been really struggling with keeping to a practice regimen as well. I think it’s something to do with the summer. I don’t practice, and just goof around on the table with friends. Then when I get into an action match, I dog it so bad I want to scream. It’s really frustrating.

    I have one of those notebooks – but I don’t always take it inside. :/

  2. if u have a smart phone, u can put ur routines & drills on that. then you’ll always have them. (well, until u forget ur phone, anyway.) 😛
