This afternoon a couple of the other girls and I went out to the push track with the head coach Sep and practiced our starts. Sara came too to help critique. The push track is about half a mile from the OTC at the Equestrian fields and has a flat to down to up straight rail track. The bobsleds are old ones with wheels. The pusher falls into the bobsled like I am here and then explodes forward to get the sled moving. I was really glad to get some dryland practices in and be able to work on my technique. I've also decided that every sport starts with the same basics, like good ankle flexion and forward lean. At the end of our practice the guys came out to train and I was glad that I'd gotten a few of my major flaws worked out before I had an audience.
