Advice for a returning unicyclist

Thanks Cathy! I bought a 20" low end torker after work today. Two kids are at camp and the remaining child has a foot injury, so I had at it a bit myself. I could ride down the driveway and around the corner and back, but riding backwards was not there. I was up for less than a minute. I found several differences from my recollection. It was physically stressful (my hips hurt) and also mentally stressful; I’m not sure why. Also, gym shorts aren’t going to cut it, let’s just say. I’ll keep at it. Kids return in 10 days … .
