#9: 1st Day from 5 lefts; I Crave Speed
Today was a good day, mostly because I was running from 5 lefts or about 70 feet. And based on my experience speed is good. The faster I go, the higher I go...and I want to go really high. I struggled adjusting to the 3 left and 4 left approaches, because I could not utilize my speed. Therefore, I had to focus more on my technique, which is a good thing in many ways. With that said, I will need to make a few more adjustments from 5 lefts before I am completely comfortable. This week will get better I’m sure. I have attached video of the jumps from 11/7 and hopefully I will be able to post some 5 left videos next week.
On another note, Mario vs. Sonic at the Olympic Games just released and it has pole vault on it. So that is currently occupying a lot of my free time (LOL… nothing like a little virtual reality). Please feel free to comment or ask questions by either emailing me or using the comment link at the end of the post.
