Good Luck, TJ!
due to the bad weather here in ontario with all the ice storms and such, i had my first real track/speed session instead of the usual plyos and short sprints (20m).
I did 30, 50, 80, and jumping in my speed session.
indoor Meet results:
I started the day off with a weak 200 where i ran 23.83 and my stride felt kind of wierd as its seemed i was understriding.
40 minutes later i ran the 60 and was really tired. I finsihed 1st in my heat and won it by over 1 second and by 10m. My dumb coaches seeded my time really low (8 sec) and so i ran in the slow heat and only ran a 7.5s This sucked becasue there was no finals for the 60 so i never had anyone to push me to run faster. oh well.
I had a 2 hour layover until long jump and fouled on my first 2 jumps and had to jump a safe 5.77m to get into the finals. In the finals, I was interupted because I had to go run the 200 again in the finas and ran it in 23.71 but i felt dead.
Sprinting back to long jump i went and jumped 5.80 on my first jump and in the midst of in the air…i reached out with my hands and my hands got caught on my spikes and i ripped them back to finish the landing phase and tore the flesh out of my hands. blood was all over the track and sand. but it was funny because my next jump i taped it up and i sucked it up and jumped 6m. It was funny because i had to land straight up in the pit to prevet from getting sand in my wound.
With all of the poor results i had (it was disappointing as i expected to go under 7 in the 60 and jump well over 6 in LJ. ) i still mae PBs in every event.
Lj- last year=5.80 today=6.00
200- last year= 24.5 today = 23.71
this is the very first meet of the year and i can only improve from these results. looks good for this year.

after half recovered from the high hamstring pull i had to go to a meet today (field only).
Our track is brutal for jumping as it is just a rolout track of rubber that makes your spikes sink into it.
In LJ I jumped 6.11m into a 4.5+ headwind and followed up by jumping 6.02 and 6.05 --there was no finals.
In TJ i faulted on all my attempts because of the strong tailwind 4.5+ except for one which was 12.48m. My faults were monster jumps too i was so pissed!!!
I did high jump for fun today and jumped around 1.70m which was only like 5 or 6 step approach.
With all of my jumps over 6metres, i am making awesome progress and i am getting a lot of speed on the runway now, even though i could feel the tweak in my hamstring eveery stride.(i had to understride to avoid pulling it again)
I cant wait for our next weeks meet (tues) because ill get to run the 100 as well as my jumps.

Better get some therapy on that hamstring. At the least you can ice after practice for 10 min with an ice cup. and use some heat rub on it before you warm up (yes this DOES help). Hot and cold contrast showers are a big help also.

today we had a meet with decent conditions except for the monster headwind even worse than last week. At least it was warm out.
im ready to change my name to LJ2K because i always seem to exceed my expectations in LJ but am having early trouble with the TJ. I think it takes longer to peak in triple jump through the season.
I jumped 6.12 in LJ and won my division by 52 centimeters. I should be able to win SWOSSA with that jump but would like to get in th mid 6 meter range by then.
I jumped 12.55 in TJ as i had to work around the 4x100 and the 100 final during the same time as the TJ. I didnt even get a finals so i guess thats okay.
In the 100 all of our times were screwed up at the tape in the finals. I was just happy to be in the finals actually because i ended up doing 6 events today. and that was my sixth. My coach said i ran around the 11.7 range but im not sure.
All in all i was happy about winning the LJ and being in the finals in the 100.
PS the high hamstring is fine now.
