I wish I could go out and throw for distance and measure to see if my hard work is paying off. Will have to wait til spring as its just too cold here now.

I throw a lot in the garage but not just haphazardly. I usually break it down into several sessions with different discs and try to analyze how each shot felt- what did feel good and what I think needs improvement. I'm also able to see how the disc hits the sleeping bag that's hanging and adjust for angle and work on control. Very few of the shots are flat out give it absolutely everything I've got type of shots. Just from the sound and impact of the discs hitting the bag I can tell my velocity has improved quite a bit already since I first started. I've logged in about 1,300 throws now.

Not yet. Planning on getting a radar gun. It was sort of decent today in the mid twenties with light snow flurries and threw some at my lunch time before the snow was sticking. Was getting the discs out to about 350 feet with my winter coat on so I was pretty happy with that. The cold dense air sure does cause the discs to turn over pretty fast though which kind of sucked.

Do you know of any good ways of increasing arm speed?

Compared to a lot of pros Seppos reachback is a bit limited. He doesn't straighten his arm as much at the elbow. At normal speed you can barely see it increase beyond 90 degrees. In slow motion you can see that it does. The illusion that he is holding on to a pole or a door frame behind him isn't the same as in the form of many others. That's basically it.

This means your release isn't clean. The discs are fighting through denser air - and so any wobble on release is going to be exaggerated. Focus on making sure that the disc is as on-axis with your angle of attack as possible, as well as on the cleanliness of the release itself. When the air warms up the disc will cut through the lighter air that much easier.

They were pretty clean.
