i got up on my own :)
« on: September 29, 2007, 05:18:25 PM »
Bit wobbly still, but my second successful rising on my own  ;D

I didn't know if I had enough strength in my legs to do it, but it turned out that I had just enough :)

Mucho satisfied I can do something except jog about and rather wobbly jumping  :D

(Yes, I know I had no knee pads on  :-[ but I was on grass and they got in the way while I was practising)

I know exactly how this feels.

Took me bloody 6 months.

Yep, it's amazing when you finally di it. Took me about 4 weeks. I could do it straight away on the junior model though.

Yeah, I'm back

I think this is one of the most important "trick" you need to learn on your bocks - Well done  ;)

I think long legs help too, I have annoyingly short legs and it's hard to get your foot vertically in front of you without falling over.

Yeah, I'm back
