Ok, so one of my resolutions this year was to get into better shape, mostly cardio. But running is so boring and treadmills/elliptical machines are monotonous. So I thought I’d try some speed disc golf. I discovered a way to make it fun by taking your score + minutes to produce a final number score. I'm sure there are many different ways to do this.
Your goal is to score as well as possible, as fast as possible. (no gimmie puts, it’s easy to miss short ones when you’re exhausted so you have to finish all holes) So if it took you 31 minutes to play 18 holes at CV, and you shot a 54, your score would = 85
I tried this today for the first time at CV. I am not in extremely good shape and the conditions were tough, 27 degrees and breezy.
Results… I shot a 57 and took 34 minutes to do it. Total score =91
I felt like this was pretty good, but really ran out of gas after about 4 holes, I ended up speed walking about half of the round. I feel like someone in better cardio shape could easily get through the course in under 30 minutes.
The trick is to not spend time “looking” for bad shots. I spent a minute or two looking at the bottom of hole 14.
I was hoping some of you would try this too. It was a great way to exercise, while doing something you like.
So who can beat a 91?
Have fun!!! Be healthy!!!
