From Feb 9/09 posting:
I’m not sure if i’m using all my speed during meets, i feel more rhythmic than fast
Can you enlighten me, do long and triple jumpers ever “count off” as they move through their approach?
Locally anyway I know vaulters do with the count becoming faster as they run with more velocity but I don’t know which way it works, are they counting faster since they run faster or are they self cueing to run faster to match a faster count?
My focus is coaching sprints and hurdles and I discourage counting say strides to 1H or between flights but at the same time hurdling is very rhythmical and a fair bit of work can be done to keep it rhythmical but to modify the pace/speed of said rhythm.
From a slightly earlier post, I am glad you found a way to cope with long travel distances, that can be a very tough nut to crack!
