As I train to move forward, I've been semi contemplating when I might try and vault again. My hip feels OK but I wanted to be at a higher level of running and strength then when I last jumped.
I've got my partner in town on Tuesday, and I leave Saturday for a business trip, so why not jump with the kids this morning? That would give me a good running, bars and leg lifting day tomorrow, and a big upper lift on Monday.
Result? Headwind! Four total jumps from 3 strides / 6 steps or 33'/10m run length, all clearances, four different poles - 9'6"/3.90m, 10'/3.05m, 10'6"/3.20m, 11'/3.35m. The last jump was higher than the 3rd place bronze medal at last week's world championships in Lyon, France. In a meet I'm from 6 strides / 12 steps. Today I'm from 3/6.
I'll take it. Great start! Thanks for checking in as always! Bubba
