I've only been throwing since January of this year (I'm in my 60s and getting to retire) but I've been working nearly every day on the A1 Drill. I track my progress using the MyDartTraining app. I started out hitting about 36% of my targets and then got up to 50% but I generally throw about 40-45%. My average in 501 is 40 darts per round. I'm looking to hear if this is OK for a beginner or if I'm doing something major wrong. I practice 5 days a week, and I played in a league February-May. I did OK, but it's frustrating to see how slow and very inconsistent progress is. Silberzahn says in his book not to move to the next drill until hitting two out of three darts can be done in five or six rounds on the board. And I'm thinking, "You've got to be kidding." Everything I've read has said progress is slow, but I have no idea how slow is even reasonable. As I write this, I'm thinking, "This is dumb. Enjoy and progress at your own pace." But I can't help but be frustrated, which leads to more crappy throws. Any comments?
