Difficulty staying on toeside turns (calves really tired)
With all the help here, I'm finally fairly comfortable linking my turns all the way down long a$$ green runs. Even with slightly steeper areas, I learned that by leaning on my front foot, initiating the toeside turn isn't that scary anymore, in fact it is ALOT less scary than compared weighing on the rear foot where it makes turning next to impossible.
So, I am not sure if this is user issue or my binding setup issue or my boots. I'm finding that holding the toe side edge is a bit difficult for me. I know I am suppose to rest my shin against the boots, but I felt like i can't really hold this position. When I do shallow turns, this is not a problem obviosuly. But when I try to do large S turns, I'm just scared that my toe edge won't hold and will catch the heel edge.
Now,this could be that in the past, I wasn't very good at linking turns, so i might not be on my toeside all that much, but now i'm linking turns consistently, this problem is surfacing. My calves are also very sore today, never happened before.
I have the salomon F22 2009, they are kind of stiff but comfy. Length wise fits me perfect, but i do have a heel lift due to me having the worlds smallest heel. Anything I can do to solve this issue?
My binding angle is set with no forward lean, not sure what its called... i'm not sure if i should be messing with this at this point. I have the 2009 Ride VXN.
But all in all, it took me awhile, but I can finally get down a 3 mile run (umm I still fall once or twice) with confidence. I only did a small blue run once yesterday, maybe thats why the whole time I was in confidence, my friend really wanted to practice her turns so she didn't want to go to the blues and I stayed with her, but frankly, I was a bit bored of the same run, but figured staying on the gentler slope will be good for me.
