January 27th 2015
Today, as well as the second half of yesterday, went a lot better than yesterday morning. I’d made the decision to drop down from the “experienced” red slopes to the beginner red slopes.
And that did me the world of good. I’d gone from being out of my depth to, well, in the shallow end. And I don’t feel as scared or nervous anymore. A big fall really does knock every ounce of confidence out of you.
But now I’ve gone down the easier slopes, I’m feeling better about everything. Hopefully by the end of the week I’ll be able to keep up with everyone else.
My problem is that I don’t like other people being on the slope with me. I want the whole mountain to myself so I don’t have to worry about whatever other people are doing. Although, my ethos at the moment is to just assume everyone else on the mountain is better than I am, so they’ll get out of my way.
I hope, at least.
Until tomorrow, bend your knees and lean forward.
