Yeah, we don’t do bounds, in fact, we haven’t done much jumping at all, so I don’t really attribute that performance as an accurate indicator of my potential. I talked to my coach and one thing that my coach did tell is that I’m not fast enough to jump 23 feet. Well, I kind of agree with him. I didn’t at the time, in fact I challenged him to a bet that I could get close to 11 flat in the 100m today (sadly, we don’t have practice today). He does have a point though. He also told me to stop worrying, it’s only January.
But I do some bounds at home and am starting to work on my core strength with squat exercises at the gym — technique as well.
As far as college, I’m sure I could get into a D1 academically, it’s just costs are kind of crazy these days and to eliminate that would help me sleep better at night.
