Default riding switch

Tried switch the other day and it looks like a much longer process than I thought. First, my leg that I thought was in shape is not. My calf and high ankle got tired in a hurry. I managed to try a bit of falling leaf for a bit and some turns to full stops with 4 in a row at the most. Keeping my hands on my knees helped but I kept going more and more to one side of the hill until I was almost in the trees. My body doesn't want to go switch. No matter what, I end up looking over the wrong shoulder even if my body is going the other direction. At one point I was actually looking up the hill. At least I'm seeing a bit of progress, even if it is at the same pace as 4 year old beginners.
