does anyone have times on when each group jumps? all I can find was that it starts at 8 and the Elite starts at like 5.

I don't want to be there all day, I just want to jump and watch the elite jumpers.....

Actually I'm dealing with that right now, because on Tuesday I was at practice and I came up short on a jump and my heel landed on the top of the plant box, and since then my heel is havin...

definatly run tall. Yeah, you need to be leaning foreward as you accelerate, but after a stride or so you should be up tall and powering into the plant! Tall run --> tall plant! :yes:

For some reason I find that if I nap at any time of day, I'm extremely tired the rest of the day, and have trouble falling asleep. And I'm awake from 5AM to around 11!

are you streaching it well enough? that might be the problem, or it could be tendonitis (sp?). If the pain continues, I'd see a doctor

you need to relax your brain. your brain needs rest just as much as your body does, but your brain won't let itself rest until it isn't being used much. Stop thinking in bed, and you should fall right asleep :)
