Things Are Looking Up?!
As I expected I needed to get out and shake my body up a little bit and TRY and get a few jumps in until a flare came and stopped me. Well, that's what I expected. In fact, I didn't even think I would get far enough along to bother bringing out a crossbar. Then came the surprise. Granted I did not feel horrible but I didn't feel good either but the result was encouraging. I completed nine vaults from four steps (22') clearing 9' 6" - 11'. I took five jumps at 11' (3.35m) just because I wasn't quite tired enough yet and I only brought but one pole.
Near the end my body was starting to feel a little beat up so I stopped and finished the remaining five stadium ramps from yesterday. SO, I will not be a tourist next week and will actually vault in the meet. In addition, I found if I put my take off foot down under me, like I am supposed to, instead of blocking, that my knee didn't hurt. I hurt now but I'm not really injured in any way I don't think. I've pushed my luck enough for today and relieved to say the least. Have a great Sunday and thanks for being here! Bubba
