Anonymous asked: Hi! I'm a varsity hurdler and I started three stepping last year. In my races last year I would three step 1-2 hurdles and four step the rest and my times were better than this season when I can three step 5-6 hurdles. Any suggestions? Sincerely, a very frustrated hurdler
Hey! I totally get what you’re saying =( I had a similar problem with my steps. I found that it really helped when I focused more on sprinting right through the hurdles and worried less about my steps. In reality, the number of steps you take should come naturally. Maybe now that you have finally three stepped, you are more aware of what your legs are doing, when actually you should just let it happen. The faster you get, the more the three stepping will come naturally and eventually carry through your entire race.
I hope that helped a little! Good luck with the rest of your season =)
You might have noticed that I haven’t been making too many posts lately. I’ve been pretty busy but more than that, I’ve kind of lost interest in keeping this blog. I still love running but I think I’m going to stop posting. I won’t delete the blog so you can still reblog old posts.
Also, if you’re interested in taking over hurdlegirlproblems, message me on my main blog, indigo-ink.tumblr.com
thanks for being awesome followers

Anonymous asked: Hi Hurdle Girl, we've made a funny little video which we think you'll like - the '110m Cheating Hurdles' - and we'd love it if you could watch it - find it on our YouTube channel (TheRealMacGuffins). If you think it's funny, it would be awesome if you would mention it on your blog - we've already had over 2,700 hits, many from hurdles fans and we're trying to spread the word even further. Thanks so much for your support, The Real MacGuffins
Hahaha nice video :) I’ll post it in a sec.
