I did a couple of SLJs today, followed by short approach (8 ground contacts) long and triple jumps.
SLJs were ok, last one at 3.40m.
What I cannot explain is my long jumps. All 5 of them were around 5.50m. My PR is 7.23, I jumped 7.06-7.13 at the end of the indoor season about a month ago.
After that I did 5 short approach triple jumps, with the last one being around 13.70. My PR is 15.25, also from about a month ago.
If it was just the long jump, I would’ve written it off as a bad day due to fatigue/early season, but the SLJs being close to my max opposed to the difference in today’s LJs and my LJ PR being the same as the difference between today’s TJs and my TJ PR is really confusing me.
Does anyone have any insight to the reason for this discrepancy?
Wow! That is a very impressive SLJ. What year are you?
