Went out alone today. was going alright and really enjoyed it. But got really tired toward the end, which meant more falls (both intentional and unintentional).
highlight of the day was when i did a purposeful bail (i was going faster than I liked down a hill) in front of a couple of ladies, who then asked "Did you fall because of your wax?" To which I replied too truthfully "Nope, I just fell cos I'm bad at skiing!"
Turned out they were from the Netherlands, so they sympathised with me!
In any case, I think having to concentrate so much on what I was doing was a good thing. Didn't think about heart rate or surgery aches and pains once.
