What I’ve learned while unicycling - Page 3

post #31 of 105

Re: What I’ve learned while unicycling

Practice the stuff I'm weak at.

Be satisfided with a steady learning curve.

Celebrate the good runs and good efforts.

At least half the stuff I can actually roll if I only had the sack to
try.

Relaxed focus and effort are the best tools for hard Muniing.

Breathing is important in long hard rolling sections.

All of my countless injuries came in large part by fighting the trail,
now flowing with it.

When I start floundering, get off the trail and take a break of at least
10 minutes.

Don't fight fear with aggression, rather with relaxation and desire.

Practice slow riding on long curbs--boring, but the balance training
pays off.

Enjoy and encourage your friends, otherwise Muniing is all sweat and
work.

lol!

How right!!
Almost 2 weeks ago, the ONLY time that I forgot to wear my wrist guards
since I picked up my uni in this modern age of padding apparel, I took
my first not-on-feet landing since I picked up my uni again. I landed on
my wrist and I'm still swollen an in a brace.

Doesn't keep me from riding though.

This is a great thread!

Muni weekends

A new rider will never catch up to the rest of the group if he shows up
late.

Re: What I’ve learned while unicycling

- Don't give up, you can do it!
(I learned that one very early on)

- You will fall on the body part(s) that are not protected
(also mentioned earlier)

- Don't congratulate yourself on crossing the finish line, or making the
top of the climb, until you actually do it.

- There's a lot more room for unicycles in the garage than bikes (or
cars).

- Unicycling is good for you.

- Want changes? Make changes! Don't wait for someone else to do it.

- You still won't get rich from unicycling.

Re: What I’ve learned while unicycling

If you practice enough, you can learn just about anything.

That is way more true when you're younger rather than older.

That reminds me of one I forgot:

Without gravity, unicycling wouldn't be much of a challenge.

Re: What I’ve learned while unicycling

It's easier to buy than to sell unicycles.
I know I -meant- to sell my 24" nimbus when I bought the 29" but I'm not
going to now. I've been out riding it and I still love it.

Never ride backwards up a rocky mountain road because the things that
will trip you if you see them will also trip you if you don't.

Re: What I’ve learned while unicycling

That when you're faced with difficulty, thinking you'll never be able to
do it is the sign that you've tacked on a few additional days before you
will be able to do it.
