7 guys showed up for week 2 which was up from 4 on week one. I showed up about 1/2 hour early because I knew I needed to get out of there by 7pm (ended up more like 7:30pm). We did a longer warm up followed by some laps of the course to inflict some self pain. I was feeling good until the top of the first run-up where I completely blew it on my remount twice and showed just how green I was. From there I was let know the proper way of carying the bike on a run-up. This was good info and I used it on the next few run ups.
All through the laps I kept mounting the bike wrong and causing further scrapes and bruises but was not intent on giving up. Next came barrier practice and I was given some great pointers from Joel and started slowly getting it then speeding up the re-mount with each attempt. We then finished off with a little more skills work and then a couple of us had to take off. We decided to climb the course in reverse on the way out. I am guessing the others did some more hard laps.
I left feeling not as worked out as last week but like I had learned something and felt good about this.
Can't wait til next practice.
