For me, I get a lift in, then go big or go home...
Opener-Something I can hit a triple with on a good day..means I will hit it no matter what
2nd- New PR or rougly 110% of my opener
3rd- Re break my new PR.
I never worry about winning. For 2 reasons...
1) If you consistently only worry about improving and beating yourself, you will eventually beat your competition regardless.
2) There are so many divisions, first place now is generally a joke unless it is at a big meet.
The only time I try and beat people is if a friend is there, and we are close on a lift or the total.
