MN TESTING
[2009: April: +12.1, May: +28.65, June: +35.5, July: +44.65, Aug: +29.9, Sep: +39.9, Oct: +34.25, Nov +25.71, Dec +34.2],
[2010: Jan +33.4, Feb +11.25, Mar +30.7, Apr +16.5 [inj], May +30.0, June +26.95]
[2013: Aug +19.06]

SEP 2013 TESTS: compared to last month = + 1% TI = 137.5

100: :16.2                          500: 1:59                     1500: 7:01
High: 1'7"                              High+: --                       Long: 7'6"
Long+: 10'4"                     Pulls: 7                          Lift: 7
Throw: 26'10" + 21'0"      Swim: 1:59                    Dive :26

A month of sitting around, eating donuts. Ok. The donuts were mostly today. Still. Junk.

I don't like the MN high and high + tests. They're very time consuming, and are as much a measure of hip flexibility as of jumping height. I also found 2 tests from 2012, but won't include them.

JUN 2014 MN TESTS = +2.82% improvement

100: :16.06                          500: 1:58                     1500: 6:46
High: 1'6"                              High+: --                       Long: 7'5"
Long+: 9'1"                     Pulls: 7                          Lift: 10
Throw: 27'7" + 21'7"      Swim: 1:57                    Dive :26

Very close to last September. Fewer donuts, but more sitting.

This was first week in months that I've been able to vault pain free - pulled something in lower ab playing beach volleyball back in Dec or Jan. Took long time to heal.

JUL 2014 MN TESTS = +4.6% improvement [85.83% of Jul 2009  ::) ]

100: :16.16                          500: 1:57                     1500: 6:53
High: 1'4"                              High+: --                       Long: 7'5"
Long+: 11'1"                     Pulls: 8                          Lift: 10
Throw: 27'6" + 21'7"      Swim: 1:54                    Dive :35

When I was running the 500m, felt like I was flying. Then I saw the time. Not flying.
Goal for Aug is > 90%. Healthy, no injuries. It would be fun to surf at least once, too.

AUG 2014 MN TESTS = -1.09% improvement [84.74% of Jul 2009  ::) ]

100: :17.81                          500: 2:08                     1500: 6:19
High: 1'6"                              High+: --                       Long: 7'6"

Throw: 29'4" + 22'0"            Swim: 1:36                    Dive :27

Low ab pain. That's my excuse for the runs and jumps. I thought I was working out pretty well this past month. Results don't show it, tho. I need to review my training... 170.8# per the ever-lying scale.

It's been > 4 years since my last post. It was interesting to read some of my old posts. I was just talking to Corinna last night about some of my parkour fails. We got a small dog 3 years ago. My physical routine has become a lot more short throws, short sprints, easy swims, easy bike rides.
I still do some small vaults - mostly popping a 5' wall on my commute.

JUL 2018 MN TESTS = [not going to calculate]
100: :16.03                          500: 2:09                     1500: 7:35
High: 1'8"                              High+: --                       Long: 7'6"
Long+: 11'                            Pulls: 4                          Lift: 6
Throw: 25' + 20'                  Swim: 2:02                    Dive :17
