Train Hard - Stay Humble

Back to basics in the wet. Since group regular Sunday group training was cancelled, I went out by myself for about an hour and a half at Cal. Here's some of what I did, misses and all.

Song is V.I.H. by Fnaïre. I don't speak the language so I have no idea if they words are horrible in anyway- anyone who can help out with that, please enlighten me.

Shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 8 (ie normal running shoes purchased for fit and comfort, not adhersiveness). I can't speak to how much difference stickier shoes would be. My new mantra: technique transcends technology (alliteration addiction anyone?).

Re: the splat at 2:08- clearly I didn't get to know the surface well enough. I was actually trying to monkey over from a standstill so when I bailed out by putting a foot down, it was already too late. The progression following that shows how I should have gone about it before instead of after.

Did I look into the camera at the end? I didn't mean to (so unpro of me)- I was checking over my shoulder out of habit even though i knew what was behind me.

...not to be the naysayer, but Msgr shoes must be regular running shoes (Asics? Reebok?), and, aside of 2:08's slip, 1:40 to 2:40 is pretty crazy good, and possible because he's adapting technique, strength and speed, IMO (in fact 2:08 happened probably because, he pushed too hard, using too limited shoe surface, forgetting the conditions, maybe overconfident because he was rightly working up to it... happens.).

I'm not even commenting on the rail-balancing, which in those conditions is heroic... :)

One needs to be able to work with what he has: being it a wet, irregular, structurally weak obstacle, or "equipment"...
I guess it's about Adaptation.
