I mentioned that my last practice my hamstring felt a little unstable and not quite 100%. During the week on and off I have felt little twinges in it making me think maybe I dinged it a little last week on my last jump. Apparently not as today was no problem. That said, I would have loved to have taken several more jumps but I had accomplished my goal with good technical vaults and was not hurt. STOP!!! And I did - quit while I was ahead.
My "rehab" is always predictible but it is also very dependable. As I ramp back up through poles I'm always technically cleaner and more confident. Or as Aerosmith would say, Same Old Song and Dance - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJdWPSwSOLw To me that is music to my ears.
I was heavy again today (174/ 73kg) yet got great positions on the pole and had a little more control than when I am lighter. I haven't quite figured that out yet. If you're heavy a pole should feel small, not give you more. Yet the technical control actually gave me more height. Whatever - I'll take it. Have a great day!! Bubba
