Beating a mental block #bikeschool
Paul (pictured above) and I were out riding the 4X, some dirt jumps, skinies and I was riding the Teeter totter. Paul mentioned "One day I have to do the teeter totter, but not today.". I gave him a little push and told him he could do it and we could get pictures. This mental block had been with paul since 2 years ago when he first tried the totter and could not let himself ride past the hinge.
He gave it a try and the first time speed checked a bit much but pushed over none the less. After that he did it one more time smoothly and he was shaking. It is amazing when we can beat the mental blocks we put out in front of us. Now I just home my daughter can get her back handspring...
All for now I'm out.
