I made the strange and counterintuitive decision today to try and vault. Why not? I thought I restrained my left leg just a week ago today, and have no idea if my delt is healed enough to vault. Might as well try to add a month to my rehab clock.
In actuality I was hearing the words of my orthopedic surgeon telling me that if my training injured me, but my vaulting didn't, then I needed to make a change. If my vaulting inured me and my training didn't, then I need to make a change. So I figured I might as well see if I can vault.
The answer is kind of. I took some easy take offs into a big headwind and then put a bar up at 9'6"/2.90m and made it by a mile. Felt it a tiny bit in my leg and a tiny bit in my delt. I stopped uninjured and now I will train for a month and vault next on Thanksgiving Day. I
t's a lot easier to train when you know you can vault, then when you're hoping to get well enough to vault. I'll take it. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by. Bubba
