(<1 mph) Calm


Continuing to make good progress on my right rudder piro flipping. But it's fascinating me, a lot, how my brain is adjusting to try and match my left rudder abilities to my right, but there's some way to go yet.

Having said that, I'm finding that practicing reversals at varying points of the flips/rotation, in either direction, is helping quite a bit, almost like the brain cells need input from both directions to somehow make ones mind flex for the better all-round.

On another note, I'll be testing my SK720 and GPS2 any day now :)

“What we found is if you practice a slightly modified version of a task you want to master, you actually learn more and faster than if you just keep practicing the exact same thing multiple times in a row,”

Wow. I'm only part of the way through reading the article, but that's it exactly. Amazing. It feels pretty weird to me when I 1st try a new move, or the opposite hand of a particular move I already do, but it's definitely well worth it.

Edit: 1 to 2 pints doesn't necessarily result in having a detrimental effect on the process either :)

If I'm struggling with getting a move to settle, I've found making it harder by adding orientations defo helps. I found that article a few weeks ago, and I thinks that's what they mean.
