Bowling keeps happening every Tuesday night. I’m enjoying it, but it sure isn’t going my or my team’s way.
We are currently in last place. We just can’t seem to win, or if we are in the lead, we can’t hold on to it. This last week’s third game was a great example where we lost our lead in the ninth frame.
And I am lucky to get more than one strike a game right now. My high game the last three weeks has been a 161, but other than that, I am usually in the 120 range. A few games, I’ve been lucky to hit 100.
I’ve noticed this before. The more I bowl, the less well I actually do. You’d think it would be the opposite since I’m practicing, but it’s not. I’m not sure what it is. I feel like I am trying too hard, and that is making me do worse. I’m stiff instead of being lose and relaxed, as I am when I am not trying to any expectations. But who knows if that is the case or not.
I do know that I am completely enjoying my bowl. It really fits my hand well, something I was truly worried about. And it’s fun to have my own shoes and my own ball. It’s a luxury, sure, but it is a ton of fun.
