I’ve been trying to avoid this post, but truth be told. . .
I keep getting really frustrated with my riding. UGH. I’m simply posting my reality.
I’ve been riding with a coach three days a week all season. If I’m riding with someone that good, I feel like I should be shredding a whole hell of a lot better than I am. In my brain I know what I have to do, but I just can’t to get my body(and bio-mechanics) to act it out. I’m not gonna lie, it sucks when 9 year old shredders are landmines better than you!
Its strange how you can do a trick one day and not the next. I’ve had a few amazing days in the halfpipe but I can only ride it when its soft and slushy. When the ice hits, I’m doomed. The other day I hit a jump, came down and caught my front edge. . . hard. (as evidenced by the massive bruises on my elbows.) STUPID! I try to say that I’m being hard on myself, but no way, I should be able to do this.
So that being said, doubts start creeping into my mind. . . . followed by an emotional breakdown of sorts. Sucky.
