Update: EIU

Today was the perfect day, until my last 3 jumps. Evidently I am getting faster and faster every week. My "performances" are slowly declining, but my jumps are getting bigger and bigggggger. (watch the video) I put more hip height on 5.05m than I did on 4.90m. I took my grip up to 15' on 16' poles (long story), but with all things considered it was a good move technically.

Meet Stats- men's pv began at 12pm...I took my first jump at 2:09pm and my last jump at 2:39pm...starting height 12'7" came in at 16'. It was ran well...can't complain about that)

My Stats- 8 Lefts, 114.5'
16' 20.8/20.0, Grip 15'
Mid- 26' Takeoff- 13'6"
1st Place
made 90% of "the move"
After the clearance @ 5.05, I missed 3x @ 5.30 (my step was under 6-9 inches)

Somehow it was the "Best" Bad Day or "Worst" Good Day I have ever had. I am jumping higher than I ever have before and I am getting faster. I have convinced myself that 18' is closer than ever.
