With the weather turning, I decided to take my uni to the gym tonight instead of the playground.
It was incredible! My spins, which on the playground were a tad choppy to start and hard to keep going, suddenly turned in to smoothly started spins resolving into pirouettes! I couldn’t believe it I think the best pirouette I came out of was about 1-1/2 rotations. I could spin until I was too dizzy and had to stop in both directions! I could turn backwards, turn on one foot (forwards), do forward unispins, all this stuff that I really struggled with before.
Thie biggest trouble was stopping the spins and turns. I think I was forcing them like I had to on the pavement and so my 90s became 270s pretty easy and I couldn’t stop to change directions in a figure eight, the inertia kept me turning one direction.
What a blast! I’ll hate to go outside with my freestyle again!!
I just got a new Primo The Wall tire on my uni, where my old one was a 2.1, this was a 1.8 or whatever, AND I got to ride on a poured concrete floor (which is actually nicer than a gym because it’s so flat and smooth). I could do a half-rev into a two-spin pirouette no problem. It was crazy!
How you got to ride in a gym, I’ll never know. I have an awesome juggling club in my area that meets in the front lobby of a university building three times a week, so I get to practice my freestyle there when it’s wet and cold out in the wintertime. awesome stuff.
Forgiveness before permission!
That’s my my favorite life-motto!!!
I just showed up and started riding next to the people playing pick-up basketball.
I am also quiet and respectful and give them no reason to evict me! I’v been bact several times since this post and seemed to raise no eyebrows.
Give it a go. What’s the worst thing, they say shoo?
