Well, in the first week of learning, it wen smoothly for me, even though i had about 5 feet of concrete to ride on, then would go into a gravel parking lot. Learning to ride on gravel made it somewhat harder to ride on Pavement, but i managed to learn in about a week.
After being able to ride for good long distances, that’s all i did, never knew about jumping or any of the other stuff you could do on a uni.
Within the 2-3ish years of just commuting every once in a while, i couldn’t ride much cause my uni was broke, i learned to ride one footed, and pogo around.
So technically the progress from back then was very small, but all i did was just ride, so it was good to me.
Just for the past 4 months, i think, is when i finally got seriously into unicycling, seeing what you could do on them reignited the flame. The main thing is was trials.
Starting with trials was fun =p at first i learned to hop up and down curbs, after that i tried going up stairs, I actually had a hard time to be able to get up one stair at a time, but after about 3 days of practicing i was able to jump up 10 of them one by one like nothing. Then i learned how to ride one footed with my other foot in a few hours, idling took me at least 1 day to get, i learned one-footed idling about 5mins, i didn’t think it would be so easy. All that happened in about a week.
Once i got my Torker Dx, everything just flew, instead of hopping up 1 stair, i hop up 2 or 3, i can now jump about 2 feet with a static or rolling hop, my SIF hops are about 2.5feet. Learning that took about a day, but to progress it to where i am now, maybe a month or two.
I can do a lot more but i just don’t remember the timeline it took to learn them, so i guess i progress rather well, except on unispins, i have a hard time landing them, but i practice them like crazy until i get them =p
I haven’t really hit a wall yet, well, technically i have hit a wall, but that was from wrecking or landing wrong, but nothing that stopped me form learning, I just stay confident i can get something, and set reachable goals, i make them, and it makes me feel better, so i go and set higher goals. As long as i am in a good mood while riding, then things are great, even the wrecking parts are fun =p
