Yes, don’t take the heading out of context… I know some of you have your heads in the gutter, lets just not go there.
Tonight, arriving at practice with warm weather, northwest winds and my ribs feeling about as good as they’ve felt lately, I decided to do some more helis even though I have some tender ribs. I did wear a life vest over my wetsuit for extra rib protection. So instead of resting my ribs a few more days, I hit the ramp.
As you can see, I manage to get all the way around, and unlike my earlier attempts, instead of reaching with my left foot to finish the rotation, my left foot completes the spin just fine, but my right leg gets lazy and doesn’t follow. Basically I need to keep my feet together, it’ll definately increase my odds of skiing away. I didn’t need the extra padding tonight, but I did tweak my ankle a little bit, but it’ll be fine tomorrow.
I have come a long way since my first heli attempt on July 9th, seventeen attempts ago.
