Tuesday 1 May 2012: Flop??
Dick Fosbury........... I blame him!
Having jumped 20 years ago and broke the college record, I somewhat naively think I can still achieve this for a forthcoming work event.
So tonight I trundled down to Meadowbank and met with the wonderful coach who, give him his due, did not laugh at me!
So in a nutshell in 2 lessons I have to attempt to learn what most people will do in six months.
Approach, take off thrust, knee flexion, rotation around vertical axis......... That's just the few tips I can remember.
In the mean time 2 weeks plyometric exercises will keep me busy and out of trouble!!
