Re: When to move back?

How would I get my MID from 5 lefts?

I haven't tried going from long approaches because I didn't have to, and I still don't have a reason to either, but the next poles are much longer and would require more speed right?
I will take my 6 step MID on Monday I wanna say...but Tuesday seems more likely.

Re: When to move back?

My next pole should be a 13' 145.
After that we only have 14' poles. When I get on these would it also be a good time to move back?

Just curious, not really planning on moving back.
Currently going from a 5-lefts, and loving it actually.

Re: Altius in S. Cal??

Ahhhhhhh...if only. We are fundraising our DMR and 4xMile teams to NON, because the school froze our track budget (of which we rarely had any money in it anyways).

Re: Sprinting

I've been told I have perfect sprinting technique...in the 400m. Don't know if sprinting mechanics will help in the vault though, because they are very different (and sometimes contradicting). So the question here is, are you looking towards getting faster as a sprinter or a vaulter? Because IMO, th...

Re: How often do you walk away happy?

We get to pole vault. Do you know how lucky we are? Can you imagine how many people see it from the sidelines and wish they could do that for a day? Can you guess what the distance runner on their umpteenth interval of the day thinks as he drudges by the pit looking up in envy of the guy that just ...

Re: run...

One thing I remember being taught last year was doing "close the gaps" (like butt kicks but less exagerated). They basically kept the foot dorsi-flexed and high knees, and are similar to how youre supposed to run when you vault.

Re: Altius in S. Cal??

Find a high school with a pad, sand pit, high bar and a willing coach -then find 20 athletes prepared to pay 50$ each and I will run a two day clinic for 500$ -with 500 for the high school coach - the weekend of June 6/7!! Oh and the athletes will probably need to bring at least one pole each -unle...

Re: Altius in S. Cal??

Im pretty sure our state meets are run around that time...so most of the better vaulters would be training for the meet.
If I don't make state (which I probaly wont) I'd be down to go!
