I used the few meets I competed in this past indoor season to get some quality training in at full speed but I’m ready for outdoors to begin. I’m ready to get the ball rolling on the “real” track and field season and I’m ready to put all of my training to use so that I can begin making adjustments. Honestly, a part of why I am so ready is because I am so confident in how my preparations have gone to this point and I am excited to see how I can use this season to build upon the modest success I had last season. What’s more, I also look forward to fixing some of the mistakes that I made last season as I know that doing so will pay huge dividends at the World Championships in Moscow this August.
I haven’t competed in almost two months and since the indoor season my training has gone remarkably well. Of course, it doesn’t mean much unless I do what I have to do in a competition and the first opportunity that I will have to do so will be at the Mount Sac Relays next week in Walnut, California. I haven’t been to California or competed at Mt. Sac since 2010. That year I won the competition and got my season of to a great start with a 16.92m showing. I expect to exceed that performance this time around. I’m three years wiser, stronger, faster and better as a triple jumper. On top of that, I just really have a great time competing at Mt. Sac whenever I’m able to make it out there. The weather is typically beautiful, the crowd is engaged and the competition itself is top notch so there isn’t much more I can ask for aside from being in great shape, which I am.
I’m ready to get this season off to a great start.
