5x 5steps
5x 10steps
5x 15steps

& Lost count of steps
& Felt as if there was no "power" as in, woosh woosh Nathan BREATHING power, but felt steady
& Moved left block to 2, right to 3. Right foot still a little too far back
& Must learn to really fall. Should do some falling starts... Will do as soon as I remember. Honestly, sprinters being fearless - no, they just enjoy the feeling of catching themselves before they fall face first on the tartan. Snobs.
& Watch for ball of foot; drive left arm above head; push with arms & balls of feet;
& Move left arm in, right arm slightly out & lean forwards into tilt, go up, sink slightly.


Had one good "jump" from the 8 step. Not too sure if it's actually the run up, or the whole balking thing. highly annoying, and Lara wasn't helping by constatnly saying "wrong foot!" because obviously, it wasn't. I think I know when I jump off the left foot. It sort of... uh, cripples? Crumbles? I was bringing my legs together to make the mats, resulted in sore pelvic girdle & pulling bag again.

Reminder: Go through with jump & lean backwards as knee comes up, or I'll strain my bag. Not the feather dusters.

Good jump: Forgot to drop head, but it felt so easy, even though my arms were straight. I feel weaker, yet stronger, and need to work from that position instead of just being satisfied with "oh yay, arms straight & easy!"

Jumps at 3 (10ft) The pole vault slightly twisted, but I actually got it in the box, so no complaints there. Hit & Hopeish jumps, no element of waiting.

Must WAIT. Must allow body to be carried by the pole - reason arms are so weak trying to push off is that the pole is too far away. We don't want any embarressing basketball pictures.


I think the genius of the 400m is that I know that the discus cage means 200m. The bend means, okay, let's breathe hard and kick it into gear. Arm straight, outside arm can do what it so pleases as long as it's not a goose. Straight is lengthening stride (hips up) and arms straight.

Last 100m is a push, must encourage self mopre to really lactate & feel it afterwrds. Should time self? (Leave to chance, feel self evaluation.)

400m Makes it all worth it.



5x 50m @ 70%, 2mins recovery between
5x 20m @ 70% --> 50m @ 90%

Need to find 70% easier, second one was a little lax. Arms better, must remember to lift hips naturally and concentrate on:

& arms
& tilt
& balls (of feet. Ew. Who wants to look at freeballing sprinters? It's bad enough they get changed up the top)
& hips
& moderate speed

Thought the session went well. Was about to say I could do more, but that would be training silly, not smart. I feel it in my glutes now. Should have run it out. Went for a jog.

Oh: Annoyed at boys. Couldn't necessarily run through line, had the fear of running into the idiots who stopped on the track in the way. Assholes. I ran up the bank, but would have liked to have really flown at it. Didn't undertrain, but didn't feel the lightness and power.

James is gay.

Nathan is alright, as are the other kids. Because they're kids, and I'm the bitchy yr 12. Hah. Bitches!

Was a little rude to Fred, and expected to be able to do a little drill after they were done. He took the pipes away from the long jump, assuming I wanted to jump ASAP, and interrupt the session. Manesha still had one jump, and he took the pipes away from her not me. I was going to do Standing Triple Drills.

He can be so ... arrogant, and ignorant aren't the words. Stubborn, is though. God, I appreciate him, but his moods & his meanness are really uncalled for sometimes. I hate it when people don't utalise it, and don't listen. I suppose I could listen more for other people. I want to win this, and not the competition. I want to win me.


(We don't suck... as much. Jump like Standing Long, land on Left. Look up, use arms in long jump)
