It's been a week since ... (learning progress)

Recommended Posts

Hi @PogArt Artur glad to hear you are figuring it out! I am also new to euc and have been practicing a couple of weeks with the last week clicking in nice. In the past two days I have been able to do about 3miles at the park mostly stopping because my dominant leg (right) lower muscles on the side were aching something fierce. I am positive that will go away in time and just this morning was able to return home from the end of park all in one go even crossing train tracks. :D 

Looking forward to seeing your future updates!

I were going to use the poles too, but so far - I haven't  ;)

Best regards!

Stephen - really?

Can we account the EUC riding to exercise like jogging for example?

I know I'm getting tired on my practicing atm, but I guessed it's because it's cost me much much more effort to keep it going..?

Once I learn how to ride properly, I imagine there's no much workout - am I wrong Stephen?

That would be wonderful if I could burn fat on EUC as well  ;)

Depends on your riding style my calfs are killing when i get home ,maybe it's because I've done 30 miles and its hilly in Bradford ,

For me I'm twisting all over and working my core also

If i was going straight on a flat road I'd be just standing there so not as much 

Its definitely a workout sometimes, I'm drained after a good ride out when you get comfortable on the wheel and start throwing it about you'll relise what i mean ,

Not to much though on a ninebot e+ steady for now  but you deffo burn some calories 😊

I'm very pleased with what you've said!

It's making sense,that the riding style can be a workout or not too much...

Yeah, I won't show off on E+ as much as on some other high end EUC ;)

Thanks Stephen for comment :)

It was my very first day at EUC! I left the idea after that. Let me fetch you my second day, totally hilarious. 

Congratulation on your persistence. Don't rush. Most importantly stay SAFE.

As you can see, somehow I'm practicing at my own suitable peace?

Not rushing up, just listening to my body suggestions, whether to push the limits or not  ;)

Thanks ;)

We all have to start  somewhere... My GF always humbles me with her new finds...

She said: "You have to post these here!" after I posted her Blooper! So I obey! :lol:

I can imagine, lol  ;)

My wife doesn't appreciate me finding something unusual, lol  :)

Especially if she suspect I'm gonna try it  :)

Aha! Now I know that you tried poles long before I came up with this idea :) Revisit it! Really helpful with learning tricky moves, a lot less falls.

One more thing Stephen ...

If you please could avoid doing much more mileage on your Z10 please?

Just go around your house - if you really have to?

;)

It's because you've got here at BD8, building his skills up new owner of your wheel  ;)

I might be ready for the next year upgrade, lol  ;)

I found my really pitiful day 2. 

Notice the Ready To Bail foot placement (RTB), typical of a beginner. Have fun!

^ This^ exactly.  Toss the wheel around on a rough track and you will be getting some sort of work out.  Your legs will turn to jelly. Or @Rama Douglas s dancing moves.  They look slow and almost easy, but 5 minutes of that (once you have learned how to do that) will put a burn in your quads (quadriceps) like you wouldn't believe. 

An hour on that infernal washboard canal tow path yesterday (and other riding) had me asleep in the recliner when I got home; I was zonked.

Thanks for this video ;)

It is difficult to get rolling smoothly ;)

All the beginners tries look like this...

I haven't recorded any of my tries so far, it's because all looking very similar,losing the balance,waving hands in the air,falling off the wheel  ;)

I might record my riding,while I'm capable of it, lol  ;)

Thank you  :)

I'm very pleased to hear that Smoother!

I was told it's not any proper exercise,none comparable to cycling or jogging...

Thanks to you Stephen and Smoother I know I was told wrong.

Thanks ;)

OK guys, here it goes another word to my diary - zonked  :)

Is it comparable to exhausted, the same meaning?

Lol  :)

Can I say if I'm tired -> I'm derailed or zonked?

Would it means te same ? 

Lol :)
