    Ok,so its 2 weeks away from winter in the UK,but its a low milder in the UK now thanks mainly to the global warming caused by the US (only kidding),but its dark by 4pm.

    I'm lucky,I start work at 7am and I get home for 5pm,and I have a floodlit range half a mile from my house (800 yards for those who use foreign measures).So I still hit about about a 1000 balls a week,inc a couple of trips at lunchtime to another range near work,plus putting at home on the carpet.

    I am told I am a sad tw.t by my wife,so I thought I would see if anyone else will maintain this amount of practice in summer,so I can tell her to do one.

    Nope, you're a sad tw.t. :p

    Just kidding but that's a lot of practice. I live about 25 miles from the nearest range but even with one close I know my wife wouldn't go for 1000 balls a week. Neither would my back for that matter.

    If she's not packing then it can't be that bad. Keep it up for as long as you can get away with it.
