    I'm going mountain biking tomorrow with a friend who used to do BMX and he does the extreme mountain biking stuff. Crazy. I told him I want to try a little drop or something and he was like, "I'm not gonna let you do a drop. You can really hurt yourself."

    I'll figure something out.

    Amazes me how physically demanding it is. Like people look and they go oh, there's some dude on a bike that's easy.

    nah' I wouldn't push it, until your mind catches up with what instinct can do.

    If it doesn't flow, just not quite time yet. I've broken a limb, and damn near killed myself more than a time or two...not yet being in the right frame.

    Mountain bikes are fun. I miss doing that sometimes. Seems like the type of bike I'm on has alot to do with having someone to ride with.

    Which is nada right now.

    Yeah, I chilled out. I went back out on a little ride, with the mindset of instead of trying stuff and screwing up and getting stressed I'm just gonna aim to do what I know I can do best and relax.

    I just biked along at full sprint, railed some turns (20" wheels are fun), and hopped a few storm drain covers. Got my energy out and reminded me that this is recreation. I'm beat.

    I've only been riding bmx maybe 3 weeks total but as slow as progress is, I do seem to get better every time I go out. Just needa chill out some.

    It would be stupid to just go out and rag doll over stuff I can't do. Day at a time.

    Three weeks!?! Reading you speak of it, yeh...I hear you completely.

    That scrit is so much fun!

    I'd beat myself up too, get mad...thinking not pushing enough.

    But, kind of circled back to what you're thinking now.

    My friend had already taken a couple of people out at a point where I didn't have a bike yet. So there I am, and I'm laughing at the stories he's telling me of how the bike scooted forward at a fast pace under one dude that didn't "get" throttle. How somebody else ended up on their arse. Another guy just flew on over the handle bars.

    I didn't care what my friend thought, I'd just get frustrated at not progressing as fast as I thought I should.

    Yet, on the first time out I rode through the woods better than he did. I also jumped the thing a full round on the track.

    Three weeks out I got frustrated thinking, oh I should be doing this or that...but still getting comfortable knowing when to change gears on a four stroke in a given situations?

    So my friends off to the side talking with some dudes that are asking how long I'd been riding? He tells them three weeks.

    Those guys are like you're crazy...if it's only been three weeks we can't believe he's jumping like that.



    I'll bet your really "great" at it, considering the time frame and damn is it fun!

    So what all do you ride? I work for sales for a company that makes aftermarket motorcycle parts

    The crazy risks I took were mostly when I was younger. At the time I didn't feel as though I was taking any risks, but man, looking back I was... stupid. Most my risk involved some sort of mixture of alcohol, guns, and driving sprinkled with some trespassing.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    'Fraid I'm not tooooo much of a risk taker, but I'll do thrilling sports, like snowboarding, skiing and skydiving! Some people think that's risky, but I just see that as an adrenaline rush surrounded by safety features...y'know, like the parachute and the attached instructor among others. I think I'm more adventuresome than risk taking - probably because I'm not a fan of physical pain. I don't mind being sore but cuts, scratches and bruises aren't my thing.

    Yeah me too...

    I sometimes get my fun out of philosophical debates by making an argument for a view that's completely counter intuitive and try to see how many buttons I can push before it fails. The INTPs in my class were like "Why are you doing this!? The argument would face sooo much less opposition if you just take out that one word" and I was like, "Yeah no, I'm keeping it."
