I need to look stupid more often.
Looking stupid is part of the learning process. When I try to master a new skill or improve an existing one, I inevitably need to try different things. Some may work, some may not. And while I experiment with this and that, I will probably look like an idiot. Being thin-skinned and afraid to make a fool of myself are in fact going to prevent me from improvements. To learn is to be humbled and being humble is essential to learn (thanks JC).
Based on my last post, you probably can see that there are much that I want to improve. Just thinking about them is not going to get me anywhere though. Focus for tonight's indoor practice: load my push and push with all wheels on the floor.
Although it is still miserably cold outside, I'm starting to fill in my calendar for summer. Squiggy is a sure thing followed by a team training camp in Tampa, FL. I had a great time at Texas Road Rash last year and I realy want to return. There's a chance for a clinic in May as well as a marathon in Montreal. Provincials in June and perhaps Nationals too (in Calgary)? Cambridge and Chicago in July, Montreal 24 in August. September is traditionally a busy month for racing but my plans are really up in the air this year. Can't wait until the season begins!
I had my first Marshmallow Peeps here. Don't ask me why I've been missing out on this weird treat all these years. I'm embarrass to admit that I like it. Don't be mistake. This is not the right kind of looking stupid I had in mind for this post.
