Mellow skate today.
I didn’t chug an energy drink before riding this morning in my effort to be healthy or to live within reasonable proximity to health. Okay, I haven’t been chugging an entire energy drink and screaming into the ether with my animal pride. But, suffice it to say, I would drink plenty.
I suppose I didn’t last quite as long, but then again, we’re looking at temps in the 90s, so I think the pulsing sun had more to do with it.
I did have a mental slump, though. At one point, it seemed like I was not progressing, like I was just doing the same things on repeat. To be fair, I am. I must’ve done 10 nose stall to fakies in a row before moving on. Of course, I came back to the nose stall to fakie again.
The important thing at this beginner stage is building the basics firm and sure. If I did this stuff for a week and then moved on, I wouldn’t really increase my balance, board awareness or skill at tail stalls.
It’s cool. Today I realized I will enjoy myself if I take my time and stay satisfied with foundations that can lead to bigger and more rad moves.
