Extremely rare for me to get down this low in this. PR! Tied my personal record this past month in the 10yd dash with a .75 hand timed at 5'11 and 214lbs. This ties my all time personal record in this from Jan 1st, 2021 when I ran .75 at 5'11 and 206 lbs back then. So I tied it weighing 8 pounds heavier.
Just the other day I got my all time record in the standing vertical jump and had a really good workout of .82 and tons of .84s and .85s in the 10yd dash and I knew that I would come close to my all time record in the 10yd dash soon after that vertical jump record.
Well the past two weeks I got it. Full workout was
2 to 3 mins rest in between each one.
Ran all 5 of those .78s in a row. Which is just 1 off of my PR for the amount of times that I ran identical times in a row.
Temperature was nowhere near PR conditions. Did it in only 54 degrees out. I need 90 degrees or hotter to get PRs. Wind was 15mph and below. So pretty much normal wind for me. I don't count anything over 20 mph. I wouldn't come anywhere near .75 even in 25-35mph winds over the past few years.
All of my previous calculations that I have done over the years on here are all adding up. I have been saying for years that I had done so much distance running and 400 meter dashes from 1993 till 2015 that I would slowly start building back everything that I should have had if I were a sprinter all of those years instead.
Something just wasn't adding up on why I was so slow in sprinting from 2015 till 2020. And I did research into why. It never occurred to me that it was because I trained like a distance runner and 400 runner my entire life basically. I never really made the connection on why until just about 2016 or so. But now every single calculation I have done is adding up. I said that I would gradually chip away at becoming faster the older I got since I didn't get into sprinting until 2015. This is getting crazy.
So in the past 4 months I have set a 20yd dash PR of 1.96 hand timed on November 25th, 2022, a vertical jump PR over the past month and now the 10yd dash PR.
And yeah this isn't a real .75. You have to add in .75 to .85 to any of my hand times to get a more accurate FAT. Like I said so many times on here that i'm only accurate within my own unique way of hand timing myself that I have been doing for so long. So I can only compare my times to other hand times. And I don't count times where I know that I started the clock late or stopped it early.
Also this is my overall best workout in this. I never ran so many .78s in one single workout. Usually on any given day it's tough for me to break .90 in this or get below .85. In 2017 when I first started the 10yd dashes, my best that year was 1.00. I couldn't break 1.00 the entire year. My average that year was 1.05 to 1.15 using the same exact way that I time myself now.
I just need to get this into the low .70s consistently and everything else should get faster. I'm still working on more speed jumps and speed lifts. If I can somehow increase my vertical another .25 of an inch I should be able to get down even lower in this. I'm really focusing in right now on increasing my vertical.
