#7- Gravity is my enemy: 14 feet from 4 Lefts

I don’t have much to say for this post; except that I just finished indulging on some not-so-healthy Chinese food. Why? I had to reward myself for meeting my goal on my first day running from 4 lefts. My form was not the best and the practice started off a little shaky, but things rounded into form and for the first time EVER I ended practice with my best jump. I was pretty content (only because I ran out of poles). We are still waiting on a shipment of 14 foot poles to show up. Once that happens I may go 14’6” or 15’ from 4 lefts. Today I completed my jumps on a 13’6” 15.1 flex PACER Carbon (13’6” 175) from 54.5 feet. Hopefully, I can add more height from 4 lefts, we will move to 5 lefts in 2 weeks.

10/24- Vault Day: full jumps from 3 lefts 13’6/17.6 from 42.5’ and 8x10 plyos
10/25- 14x200 indoors and Pulley exercises
10/26-11 x Stairs, indoors (run every step, run every other step and double leg hops) and 6x50 strides
10/29- Vault Day: full jumps from 4 lefts 13’6/15.1 from 54.5’ and 8x20 plyos

In the video there is a photographer taking pictures of the practice. T-Mobile will feature employees with interesting hobbies in the December edition of Splash Magazine, an employee publication. I will post the article once it published. Thanks to Alice and the photographer for helping me out. Hopefully, the extra press will keep me motivated if there are tough times.
