So I went over to broad jumps; I tried using the other sand pit, it's by the quieter end of the track, I liked it more. I've been really close to a PR lately, but haven't been able to get over 10'...then my first 'exploratory' jump I had 9 and a half feet. That's always a good sign. Next couple went well, and narrowly missed 10' on 2 straight. I was exhausted from the sprinting, but part of me wonders if losing all the weight to sweat makes it easier to jump further.
This just felt like one of those days that are rare, and when you get that feeling you have got to take advantage of it. There's a million things that go into max athletic performance, and you can't always control right when you peak. I kept pushing, narrowly missed my PR, and then uncorked a 10' 3" jump. I'm going to try and remember everything about that jump to see if I can replicate it again. I absolutely stuck it. So happy. I love sprinting and I absolutely love jumping. Very few things do I enjoy more.
I like being in shape. It might sound conceited, but I really do. I mean, the body's purpose is to keep your brain alive, protect family, etc. I've built something that can do that pretty darn well.
Anyway, I think I'm going to try adding in long jumping next session, and also I want to post some progress pics pretty soon.
EDIT: I just realized that my previous record had stood for almost 3 years...holy moley. I thought I set it in 2015..
