Bit of A Breakthrough
I started at 10'/3.05m instead of 9'6/2.90m, mainly because Chris did and I also felt it was the right height based on my clearance height in the last session.
Again I made 10' and 10'6/3.20m from the short run on my smallest 1360/18.0. Didn't get in quite as deep as last time but it was close. Moved back to to 4/8/42' and up to the 17.5. Immediately the pole was too small so I moved up to the 1365/17.0 and made 11'/3.35m twice. YAY!!
I haven't made 11' in practice in a very long time. I was hoping to at least have some decent jumps, but two clearances was a real boost. My goal is to be able to jump that height from that run every day. Knock on wood but I think I'm there.
Hopefully I can do it again next time and move back yet another stride and up a pole or two. obviously the work needs to continue but this was very encouraging. If this can become my new normal benchmark, I can build from it. Have a great day and thanks for hanging in there with me. Bubba
