Broad Jump
« on: June 14, 2008, 04:23:58 AM »
Measure your broad jump on flat ground. Start with your entire foot behind the line, jump as far as possible, measure the distance to whichever heel was closer to the start. Repeat 3 times and take the best measurement.

Last measured jump was before knee injury, at 8' 2''... Probably down now, but I'll try tonight!

Ozzi 6-17-08 9'3"

(There is a gap in my house that is 9'8" on the dot but I took a few off from the tip of my foot sticking out at take off and a few more from my heal sticking out as well at landing.)

It is funny I find that when I jump from and to something I jump much more than if I just jumped on flat ground.

I like to touch different kinds of surface textures.
Parkour lets me do that without feeling weird.

There are times when you want to break down and rage at the heavens. Don't. Stay calm, and let the emotions flood in, accept them and then rise above them. Never dwell. Don't fear or worry. Anything worth thinking about is worth talking about. And... Good luck.
