I realize that those of you who live in more sensible climates may not deal with this until later (or ever, I suppose). But, here in SE Wisconsin, the USPSA season essentially comes to an end next week. That means the best/worst 2-3 weeks of the year are coming up soon: don't touch my guns at all, triple down at work, maybe rest and heal a bit, and play the fuck out of some R6: Siege.
It also means two of the most important steps are coming up: 1) Analyze how the year went / where I'm at now, and 2) Develop a plan of attack for next year.
For me, previous years were easier because everything was low hanging fruit. To some degree, it still is (I'm locked into A-class like a fucking Disney ride). But, it's definitely going to require a bit more in-depth analysis this year, and a far more involved planning session. Thankfully, I have Iron Sight Nats to use as my "finger on the pulse" for some solid data. I would like to have a better structured plan for my training over the winter and next season.
For those of you (looking at you, Hwansik and Yanutola) who break down your training and come up with comprehensive plans...
1. What do you look for in your current skills and/or this year as "data" for establishing where your skill is at?
2. How do you apply that information to developing a plan for next year? What does such a plan look like?
TL;DR. If you do such things, read bolded 1 and 2.
If you don't, which - let's be honest - you probably don't because this is Doodie, post something useless that hinders the discussion.
