What a difference each ride makes in your progress.
Sunday’s ride had me feeling so much more confident about what I was doing. I felt like it wasn’t completely luck that helped me through the day. I had more understanding in my sparkly knowledge handbag than I did the last time that we rode.
Before we set off for the day Kenny gave me a little reminder. He said, “if you think you can’t, you won’t.”
Of course the inverse of that is – if you think you can, you’ll try and you will. I felt myself willing to baby step just that much further than I did last time.
One major milestone for me was heading up and down the gravel bank. I followed Kenny up and down a couple times and I felt relieved that I didn’t entirely chicken out. It really wasn’t as out of control as I imagined.
I need to stop thinking so much! It seemed like when I just went with the flow, I rode much better. The minute I allowed doubt to stick it’s toe in the door, things slowed down. Think less, do more.
