Did you ever just have a bad day of skiing?

Recently it seemed as though it was all coming together. Getting very comfortable at 35 off at 34 mph. Today something was wrong. I just could not make the ski turn in the off side. Just couldn't figure it out. I think it is because I was reading that stupid waterski magazine and tried to apply some of the tips in one of the articles. Who knows?

Ever had one of them days?

Oh yeah, then when I got home I took my Algebra mid-term exam and scored a whopping 60%! Think I am going to have to take a week off work and focus more on skiing.

How about driving 9 hrs to ski and your 1500.00 GOODE ski breaks in half....good thing it was on the morning of my last day. Spent the rest of the day driving the boat.

Had one of those days Friday, by pass 5 of my first set I knew I was just....off. Very frustrating, I have been skiing really well recently and was hoping for a PB.

On Friday I just stopped before I got upset, which is how I normally handle those really bad days.

Forget about the day, come back next time with a refreshed attitude.

NOPE! No such thing as a bad day if you can still get up and go skiing.

last time I had a bad day skiing - I cracked a rib. As long as I can ski the next day - I consider it a good day

A bad day of skiing is still better than a good day at work, right?

Skip, Sorry you had a bad day. I have to ask, why are you shortening the line and running at 34 mph? Based on you having to take an algebra exam, I assume your not old enough to run at this speed and qualify in a competition. I was taught to run up to 36 mph and then start shortening the line. I am old enough to run at 34 mph but now it is difficult for me to run 15 off at 34. Getting old sucks. Granted, everyone can do what they want, but I am curious.
