Sorry for the lack of posts. It's been a busy couple weeks. I have a lot to catch up on here. My drafts folder is full of started posts, but still working on finishing them. I also have very little related media, so many of those posts are going to be a wall of text, sorry.
Speaking of media, I do have two videos that my mom took at the Chinook Country Show. The files seem to be somewhat corrupted so I can only watch a few seconds at a time before it freezes. Attempting to move it onto my computer has also not worked, any attempt to copy or upload it has so far failed. This might be a blessing in disguise though, as watching parts of the videos makes me wince. There seems to be a disconnect between what I've been feeling and what is actually happening. I knew we had things to work on, but things look substantially worse than I thought they were. There are moments of really obvious counterflexion and hollowness. And my position... I thought I had been improving, but I was shocked to see how much I was leaning forward, and how far forward my lower leg was swinging.
Part of me is wishing these videos didn't exist and I never had to see them. But, the smarter part of me knows that watching them is invaluable. It allows me to see where my problems are and help me to correct them.
Luckily, I've already done a few things since the show that I think are going to help me improve. I'll hopefully get those posts up soon.
I've read about the love-hate relationship that other bloggers have with video, and I totally get it. Here's hoping that the next time I see video of myself, I will be happier with what I see.
Do you have many videos of you riding? Do you love them or hate them?
