#11- Post Number Eleven

I am running out of things to say...(ask anyone who really knows me and they will tell you that NEVER happens). So this post will be a review, a clip show of all my posts. But please do not worry; I have a track meet on Friday, December 7th at the Southern Illinois University (I wont be competing from a full approach, so don’t expect a 5.50m or 5.79m jump). Hopefully I can set a personal best from 6 steps (anything over 5.05m or 16’6”), but we are not looking ahead.

Blog so far in a nutshell: This summer some of my close friends and teammates accomplished great things, which motivated me to take my training seriously. I moved to Champaign, Il to train with Bryan Carrel (Gill Athletics/University of Illinois). To sum up the training; I got my butt kicked for the first 6 weeks and started to get in shape after that. We picked up poles and instead of going back to 7 or 8 lefts from the start…I took baby steps. This is something coaches agree on. When I was in college, after we went through preseason we usually went back to full approaches. I usually would not go all the way back, I would start at 6-7 lefts and slowly work my way back to 9-10 lefts. But here I began from 2 steps and worked on technique…then 3, 4, 5 and today 6 lefts. I like this approach better, it makes vaulting easier on your body, when you are doing tough running workouts this doesn’t beat you up like running from a full approach does. And in the larger picture, I will probably be running from a full approach from January to August (hopefully) and I don’t want to get injured at any point. Back to the story…wait that pretty much brings everyone up to speed.

Outside of training: I got a transfer from the T-Mobile in Cincinnati to T-Mobile in Champaign. I was off work for about a month which made life a lot easier (SARCASM). But T-Mobile is featuring me in some internal publications in support of my training. I should have something to post in the middle or near the end of December. I have done some “sports modeling” for Gill, which I did get paid for (Awesome). In terms of my life outside of training that is all that I have to report. I have slowly started to approach businesses for support and I have also designed some cards/flyers to pass out at meets.
