checking back in. i play basketball and work on my jumps here and there, but recently started getting into boxing. basketball and jumping is still fun, but am now looking to give it my maximum effort in boxing.

checking back in. got into running mainly because of the quarantine. have been running 5k's, 2 miles, 5 miles, and looking to run a 10k for the first time. decided to work on increasing my jump again as of today too. am focusing mostly on 1 foot now, because i'm thinking that i won't be as explosive because of the long distance running that i'll be doing.

ran a 24:09 5K today along with doing a bunch of dunks. ran a 5K just barely under 23 minutes a couple of weeks ago, so wondering what's going on. might be because i ran it at a different track, but i assume that all tracks should be 400m all around.

wondering how i'm going to increase my vertical while long distance running though. i'm thinking that my 2 foot jump is going to take more of a hit because of the decreased explosiveness. so i think it'd be a good idea to work more on increasing 1 foot.

ran 5 miles and then dunked after. had problems with cramping during dunking, so think i should probably dunk before running.

got in a dunk session with my new airpods i bought today. dunk session was crappy cause i didn't sleep well the last night, but am very glad the airpods stay put. i'm sure they won't fall out when i use them for running too, so looking forward to running with them tomorrow.

checking back in. had a shortish stint with pickup basketball again. this time i was actively trying to find full court pickup games instead of playing the usual half court.

now i've gone full circle and gonna start focusing on my vert again. still got a pretty good RVJ, was able to 2 hand grab on rims that were around 2 inches short.

am wondering if playing 5v5 full court on 9'6 rims with a fiba 3x3 ball (size 6) is viable.

have been playing pickup here, and ppl seem to be fine playing on rims that are a few inches shorter, like 9'9/9'10. so my thinking is why not make the rims even a bit shorter, to make in game dunking viable.

i guess the lower the rim is, the more it'll mess with people's shot though. so i believe around 9'6 is about the point where dunking is easy enough, without being too low.
