Have you ever ridden a problem, time and time again and thought
“he always goes off the circle at that point”
or “whenever I ride past that point he loses rhythm”
or “he always drops his shoulder on that corner”
If the answer is yes (as it is for me!) then DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! I truly hope I am the only one who, despite knowing that …
“If you always do what you’ve always done,you’ll always get what you’ve always got.”
… I will go round focussed on something else (that’s my excuse!) and wonder why I keep getting the same result, until my coach says in a fairly exasperated manner – CHANGE SOMETHING! – You know she’s going to baulk at that, so next time round prepare for it, do a little shoulder-fore, more inside leg, half-halt, just do something to at least try to solve the problem! OK?
