Im really happy with how the meet went, I only ended up jumping 17'9" but since i have been out with injury for a week and a half I cant be disappointed. I went into the meet wanting to feel out my run and make sure i was comfortable with it before next week, and i picked up right were i left off last year at nationals. It was only my 3rd time back at the long run so I was really happy i was able to get on the poles that i did, I wasn't able to get on any of my new poles but im confident that next week i will be able to jump on them no problem.
I made 17'9" on my second attempt after running through on my first. I put the bar to 18'0" and had a great jump on my first attempt but the pole was too small so i hit the bar on my way up. Went up a pole on my second attempt and something didnt feel right on takeoff so i rode the pole into the pit. My third attempt was pretty good I tookoff around 13'3" which is just a little under for me, had about 7 inches over the bar and just came down on it. I think with a couple of practices this week i will be more than ready for Friday at Millrose, cant wait!
