Re: Peaking before season?

... PS... I would not suggest doing "3-4-5 hundred meter ladder, took 8 long jumps, vaulted for an hour, and then ran a mile all in the same day and barely got tired" in one day ever again. :o That was very foolish. I wouldn't beat yourself up about it. Training is going well now, so obvi...

Re: Peaking before season?

Last year I as I was declining I tore my quad trying to maintain my body at the same level it had been before the season started. I started training seriously starting January (after the MT SAC camp) and immediately began to get in shape. I knew something was wrong this week when I ran a 3-4-5 hund...

Re: Peaking before season?

I talked to my coach about it and he said I'm just overreacting.
I hope so, because while I trust what he and everyone on here says, I still fear that I'll burn out before league and miss my first chance at CIF. :no:

Re: Peaking before season?

I keep myself in decent shape during the summer, and get by during the fall. No everyday training in the fall, but I train 5 days a week in the summer.
This season I wanted to stay healthy so I never really went hard training until January, despite beginning track practice back in November.

Re: Peaking before season?

Im only concerned because it seemed to happen last year. I started the season with a big PR in the Long and 100m. As the season progressed I began getting slower and couldn't jump as far, despite still regularly PR'ing in the Vault. (Which could be attributed more to technical advances rather than g...

Peaking before season?

I feel like I am about to peak. (Don't ask how I know, I just have this odd feeling that I am.) Yet we have yet to put up the standards so we could vault. I'm currently PR'ing every week in the long jump and 400m. I don't want to be peaking right now as I would be in decline by the time we begin tra...

Nike Rival D III/IV

I was shopping on VS Athletics, and found it interesting that these two shoes (along with the ASICS Hyper MD) were listed under Long/Triple and Pole Vault spikes. Has anyone ever tried them or use them? If so, how did they fair out? I remember Barto told me that the lighter spikes wouldn't be able t...

Re: Asics Phantoms I/II

Oh wow...I had no clue about that.
Well I'm on the verge of making the 4x4 team right now, which is why I initially looked into it, but it seems like now I should just go for 2 pairs...

Asics Phantoms I/II

Does anyone know if this is a good jumping shoe? It's very light, which is one thing that I thought was different, at 5.8oz, compared to other shows like the CyberJump or TurboJump which are at 8 or above. It's designed to be a hurdler shoe, but don't hurdlers also need excellent heel support? Inter...

Re: Mt Sac Camp

Man, I was way darker than him! LOL
I got better...I went in with a PR of 10' and got up to 11' on the last day.
Next year I'll be back to be in the advanced group. ;)
