skipped round 4

6 min before practice was done I did several
25 FL or SDK easy speed
25 easy

when I skipped the 400's & round 4 I talked with Kubes and we watched a Navy ROTC guy who climbed up on the 3 meter platform and was scared to jump off
he walked down several times
he jumped off the 1 meter no problem.

He needed to jump off the 3 meter to pass his training but his phobia was so powerful that he couldn't get himself to step off the end and plunge into the water, he stayed there from 5:45 am to 7:45 am then finally gave up and walked down the ladder. He had 2 large tattoos, one on his arm, one on his chest that probably hurt way worse than a bad landing off a 3 meter platform might.
