haha i wouldn't sweat it. Most likely tomorrow will go a little more smoothly.
your body just isn't used to this and the more you ride the easier it gets to ride consecutive days.

Could just be muscle fatigue making it harder to ride.

Why is it after a good day I have a bad day????
Could not get into a rythym today. Was totally awkward on every toe side turn. Had to dodge several people and didn't feel comfortable at all - and was not having fun so I quit.
My last run I even accidentally did a heelside carve - scrared the bajeebies out of me and thank goodness I saved it and didn't fall!

|fayewolf||Look at you!!! You totally give me hope!!! Hey, i'm totally like that when I'm at the blue, I maybe able to link a few turns only when the slope is not so steep. But of course, your linked turns are much smoother than mine!! Keep up the good work, I really enjoy watching your videos!|

2/4/11 update for snowolf & fayewolf
Had a REALLY fun day today! We went three hours without a break, finally went back to the condo, fueled up and then went back for another hour.
Snowolf - boy, trying to remember EVERYTHING is so hard. I was trying to remember to bend my knees more, especially toeside and then would forget to turn my shoulders. Then I'd remember to turn my shoulders and forget to bend my knees. But overall I had a really good day and am beginning to feel more comfortable each run. woo hoo!

Fayewolf - after we refueled I decided to go ahead and try some easier blue runs that they have after having a great three hour time in the morning. There is a really short run called Mainstream that I went down three times, but it was soooo tiring getting to that run as it is really flat, then after the run it is flat again. So, after three tries I decided to try the bottom of the main blue run down the middle of the mountain that dumps into the main area. It took me awhile to get my first toeside in but I did, then after a few links I had to take a break to regroup and try some more. But it is a wide run for practicing so I will try that bottom run tomorrow as my "blue run" to practice on. It is not near as steep as the Perfect Pitches I tried last weekend.

Hope you have a good day when you go this weekend also.
