Clearing 11' at the Pasadena Senior Games
I caught a little bit of a headwind on the 11' jump and probably ran a little hard. At the top of my extension at take off I felt a kind of slight stretching/mild sting behind my left knee. Thinking this was probably adhesions breaking free, I stopped. Probably didn't have to but I had accomplished what I wanted, 11', qualify for National Senior Games next year, and to walk away healthy.
Today is the first time since December 29th that I have come home from a meet to put my poles away and was not hurt. I have been hurt before but never back to back meets six weeks apart. Today I felt good; like I could actually jump again. And for that I'm grateful. Have a wonderful day! Bubba
