      Thanks Rae! I like to think I can work the stamina and technique together at an equal rate. I like that you can increase the speed according to how you well you get the motion down.

      Thanks, otto. Good work as always! This is something that resonates with me right now in my training as I am appreciating more and more that drilling and conditioning are what truly authenticate great technique and its supporting stamina. Providing us with greater depth and integrity in our game.

      Gotta keep drilling. Challenging and changing :)
