Default Rails: Speed really is your friend

I did my first real rails yesterday (just a ride-on, but you have to start somewhere). I was kind of tentative and was only completing about 20% of my attempts, just kept dropping off early on most tries. Today I went a little more balls-to-the-wall and just charged at it and after the first 2-3 attempts of the morning I never missed or dropped off again. It's rare that a statement gets proven so dramatically, but in this case I'd have to say

I think it's actually safer as well hitting it faster.
