The stuff I work on is good, and the mistake I make is thinking that because I have been skiing well for a while I no longer need to think about that those things because they have become habit. I start working on the next tweak that if accomplished will launch me thru purple regularly. If all I think about is that one thing I should be good next time out b/c it rocked today, right? Inexplicably over time I slip into poorer skiing until someone like @razorkskier1
says I don't look stacked and my elbows are not pinned to my sides.
This was a focus point some time ago and really got me going but with time I concentrated on "the next thing" and slowly lost my stack and elbows. Turns out this had NOT become habit. My habits are actually the same old bad stuff I used to do for years.
What a constant battle to continue to pay attention to what is necessary even though might be adding in more for even better skiing. Tonight had my stack, my elbows, lighter pulling, kept handle with chest outbound and felt like I broke slump and regained big width, proper speed at the ball, proper angles etc. Hard to think about so many things when adding in more yet. Oh well...just happy to have extracted my head from my backside after going slowly backwards for 2 weeks following a very good run. Hopefully can build to another peak soon.
You guys peak and valley like this?
