Preparing for National Senior Games 2015

Chuck and I are now through with high school track for the summer and it is time to participate in our training for the summer season.  We had an early meet at Seattle June 7th.  Performance was pretty normal for our first meet, with Chuck clearing 6 foot in the pole vault.  I made 10′ which is a little disappointing given the drills I was working on all spring. Worse was that I strained my left hamstring and have been fighting it ever since.  I have a tendency to push my feet too far in front when I’m trying too hard to accelerate.  We’ve been having some Monday sessions at my house this summer and I’ve really had to take it easy.  Chuck and I have been working the drills as hard as we dare, particularly getting  left hand to our chest.  Chuck has been around 6′ or better for most our Monday sessions.  I cleared around 10’4″ at our home pit even with a gimpy left leg so we’ll see at NSGA 2015 games.
