Yes yes yes! Almost every time up until now I have been wrong, or at least, only partly correct. And this time?
I'll say it, I think this is a breakthrough.
A world class skier of snow I was described as once. 1990s in Utah. Nothing I am proud of, long I had been an excellent skier, captain of the ski team in college.
But this comment to me in the mid 90s, it was the Supreme skiing ability of my life. It was near impossible for me not to be extremely excellent. Until it was lost.
Not unique to me is this. We know this.
What magic this speaks to, the relationship between the nervous system, the physical tissue, and the external reality. Mystikal. But not entirely.
Point being, this experience of recent days of a major breakthrough maybe an illusion, maybe short lived. Maybe more.
Repeating recent logs, trusting each leg, primarily forward thigh, to move this heavy vehicle alternating strokes, is a revolution. No pun intended.
It seems that the legs have some magical thinking that by trying to spin something they are sharing the work in some optimal way. What they really do at such times is cheat with each other. They give each other the illusion of helping each other which is energy away from actually moving the vehicle.
These last three voyage is also a first time ever experienced of trusting one leg at a time to move this heavy vehicle forward. It is transformational simplicity.
A constant movement there is in this nice journey between the following. 1. What does the body want to do, James? 2. Each leg intern moving the vehicle. 3. Are you in touch with the vehicle, James, or the magical fakes of the motor? Double check, 4. James, are you making each foot weightless in its turn each cycle? Repeat….
And the position of the head! It matters, maybe a lot!. In the wrong place it creates significant problems. In the right place it prevents significant problems and provides significant advantage, a place of stability for the body to organize and operate around. Unconscious Lee it was being allowed to lean left and forward. It seems a much better place for it is to the right and slightly back. And stable. Where as it has a tendency to try and help the muscles cheat and relax but that never works.
