Back on track

Tonight was a good night. I knew I was OK physically, so I started moving up my poles. I cleared 10’2″ on my 12’6″ 140lb pole, then cleared it on my 12’6″ 150lb pole even easier, so I took the standards up 3″ and cleared it first try on the 150lb pole. I didn’t quite get vertical and my right leg is not holding its position very well, but it was probably my best vault this summer. With a little more dedication to completing the invert I should be able to get more vertical. I was pretty happy with my left leg, right arm, and left arm. My policy of trying to hit the top of the pole with my feet to give me concrete feedback that I’m inverting enough seems to be working. Here’s my clearing of about 10’5″, which also was with 24″ depth of crossbar, which is also good depth for me.
