After sitting at home and thinking about yesterdays runs (yes, I think about it while sitting on the couch) I noticed these things:

- My weight was too far to the back leaning away from the hill instead of leaning into the hill.

- I feel like I am going too fast so I compensate heel side by essentially stopping/skidding to slow myself down

- I feel when I turn toe side I can get out of the turn no problem and start my heelside turn.

- When heelside I don't feel confident getting out of the turn to go toeside. I have this fear that I am going to catch an edge and eat it. Maybe I am leaning too far back which is causing me to overturn?

I plan on going back next Thursday, what are some things you guys can suggest I do to get to the next step?
