2011-08-02 Balance Beam Progress?

Posted 08-02-2011 at 12:12 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Did the balance beam twice this weekend. I'm getting better endurance (just a bit). I no longer feel like I'm about to cough up a lung after 5 minutes.

I haven't reached the point yet of being comfortable with any of the moves, though. I still have the newbie hesitation with anything more complicated than a straight hop on or off. And I absolutely can't 180 from a boardslide to lipslide or vise-versa yet. I think that just needs more work to get my balance better.

2011-07-10 Balance Beam work

Posted 07-10-2011 at 11:10 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Well, I finally got onto the balance beam this weekend. Twice. That's definitely hard work. I'm falling a lot, but fortunately it's not hurting. The great thing is that this is showing me that falling down doesn't mean immediate hospitalization. Hopefully I'll be desensitized to the fear by the time the season hits.

I'm doing 180's on and off, frontside and backside, but only succeeding about 50%. Also, my boardslide and lipslide positions tend to not be very balanced. I even slid...
