Back home after Five & 1/2 days of riding! Most of the trip had reasonably
ridable snow conditions (...of course what's considered "reasonably ridable" is after factoring in the utterly CRAPPY snow season so far!) Even so, I had a BLAST!!!!
My speed & control is improving by leaps & bounds!!
I worked it to the point of "Complete
" physical exhaustion this week!! I would have loved to hook up with Leo for a couple hours @ Nubs on Sun. but I honestly don't think my thighs would have held me up for even one more ride. I didn't want to get sloppy or make a stupid mistake due to extreme fatigue and risk ending my season! (...I figured if I was that
physically tired it was probably NOT
the time to push for "Just a couple more runs!")
Oh yeah,.. I accomplished one of the goals I set for the week!! I am now
riding and linking
!!! Woo Hooo!!!
I'll post more about that later, but briefly, I could easily & comfortably get
& straight ride
switch as long as I was pressuring my heel edge! I was OK with heel side turns while switch, but as soon as I went for a Toe-side turn,... Disaster!!
Now don't mis-understand me,.. When I say "I'm riding switch, I mean I'm riding & linking turns "Switch
" like I was riding "Regular" last
year,.. Pretty darned slow, occasionally jerky and nowhere near in "complete" control, and looking more than a might "Unsteady" @ times!!
But, I AM
Seriously,.. I LOVE THIS FREAKIN' SPORT!!!!
