I started having some anxiety yesterday after I posted, so on the bus ride home from work I tried to visualize 1-3 in my head and ride every step (planning for the win right?). I sometimes visualize, but I usually do it when I'm trying to fall asleep at night because my brain is still on overdrive. I don't usually get past the first couple movements in the test before I'm out like a light.
|I would have been better off visualizing this pic.|
Well I started panicking because the bus doesn't move like Penn (thank goodness on both sides of that), so as I'm running through adjustments and cues through my head, Visualized Penn isn't behaving properly. I couldn't get him down centerline.
So I'm sitting on the hard plastic seats, and I can't sit square because of the person next to me, so I have too much left seatbone... so as I try to ask for right lead canter and maintain right bend for my courtesy lap (I'm trying something new where I canter around the outside- I used to do that with Mikey), I'm getting frustrated because it's just not working. Then I ask for trot and we land in a heap just in time to go down centerline. Then he won't stay on centerline because TOO MUCH LEFT SEATBONE!
|Left seatbone is needed here. Not on centerline.|
Then I fell asleep... and almost fell out of my seat.
I'd say I'm not allowed to visualize on the bus anymore.
