Train Hard - Stay Humble

I was riding home and saw this, had to stop and play a bit. Scaffolding doesn't hang out long, use it while you can.

After playing around for a few minutes, I did five takes without any real planning of my line. While each take has unique highlights, this last one undoubtedly benefited from the previous four times through so was probably the best overall, if only because it has the fewest weak spots.

I put on the red light from my bike because it was pretty dark and I wasn't sure if I'd be visible, but I guess a basic gamma adjustment took care of that.

Excellent - love scaffolding!
Very smooth execution there Seng. Woot!

I didn't really have a plan aside from entering on the rights side of the frame end exiting on the left (in some other takes I entered and exited via the same exit path I used here), just kept going until I felt like I was being repetitious or getting tired. In such a play-oriented practice (not exactly an escape route here), it's a bit like musical improv- you learn the changes, make some notes about what kind of phrases work and then play until you run out of things to say.

The pace wasn't too fast which allowed me a minute or two of continuous movement without notable fatigue. I like doing timed exercises on structures like this- set the timer for two minutes and keep moving the whole time. In a small space, a moderate tempo seems right for me, though more practice and daylight wouldn't hurt.

"Cat Hang to Dyno!"... Lol!

a/w: very smooth, I guess that with daylight (and no 'medallion' hanging :)) you could have sped it up substantially.
On the other hand the quite pace seems to allow for a longer circuit...

Did you plan at least how many times you'd be going back and forth?
Or did it feel just right at a certain point? Or you got tired?
