I rode hard yesterday. And yesterday was good. Then today I didn’t do anything. And by the afternoon I was acting weird, sheepish, and insecure. Really? I can’t go one day without intense exercise? Ugh. That’s depressing.
I have been doing balance exercises. Mostly making up my own. Wow they really help. When you need to dig one foot into a pedal hard and balance the bike, the extra strength really helps. It seems that strength is half of handling a bike well. There’s a lot of force in turns and jumps. I’m really learning to jump small things now and flow better. I’ve been watching mr Gwinn. He has been my hero since he had a bunch of wins. I just like his style. It’s simple.
