11 AM

Mountain biking (Group ride) 45:00 [2] 4.0 mi (5.3 mph)
shoes: Trek SuperFly

Total guess on mileage, probably high. One of the easier Two Rivers trails to the wooden drop-in (terrifying and took forever for me to ride, then I was like, oh, that wasn't bad...stuff made out of wood looks way more intimidating than the trail usually), then cautiously down the beginner slopestyle trail. Rolled the jumps and still felt like I was going to fly off my bike. Really not comfortable on flat pedals.
2 PM

Mountain biking (Level 2 skills clinic) 1:30:00 [2]
shoes: Trek SuperFly

Started with rear wheel lift, the same skill where I tore open my leg on a pedal last time I took this clinic, so even with way less aggressive pedals I was nervous. Assured myself, "you know what you did wrong last time, you have your feet on the right part of the pedal, you'll be fine" and then promptly did the same thing. Luckily the forgiving plastic just left a nice bruise on top of my scar. I still need lots of practice with these on flat pedals.

Front wheel to rear wheel lift - I did much better at these when there was a stick to clear.

Level lift - lots of work left here.

Roll down a 12"ish drop - I know I've done this on trails, but it looked much more intimidating here. Had just steeled myself to go when a girl went over leaned way too far forward and basically pile-drived (pile-drove) into the ground face first. Um, no.

Drops - with no confidence in my ability to lift my rear wheel on flat pedals or even keep my feet on the pedals when landing, I just took pictures of my braver friends here.

Finished up feeling kind of bad about myself for letting being scared hold me back.
4 PM

Mountain biking (West loop to connector A) 47:04 [3] 4.3 mi (5.5 mph)
ahr:141 max:169 shoes: Superfly SS

Trail ride with Amy instead of listening to Enduro 101 since I'm pretty confident downhill racing isn't for me at this point. Fun trail, good company. A little hard to keep momentum because she's a better downhill and with things even remotely technical, but I'm stronger uphill and kept getting bottled up on the climbs. Lots of stops to chat and catch our breath.
