Re: Midmark question

Re: Help longer approaches

check

for the chart on a six step check mark... if you get you mark six steps from takeoff close to the grip to "mid" mark you should be more confident in your run.

good luck

Re: DJs Midmark question

Approach runs on the track is the absolute way to perfect the approach.. Same with the long jump.. It has never made any sense to me that every jumper or jumps coach did not demand they have a perfect run! I won the NAIA indoor long jump BECAUSE I had the best run, that day for at least one jump!!! ...

Re: Can't get my rhythm back.
