  1. tunnel went very well. the coach said my heading and turns were very good and only recommendation was to be more aggressive in my moves since I tend to be slow and cautious. side slide needs a bit of work still. We played a game of tag at his suggestion. Turns out I was almost perfect doing that because I was relaxed and just flying and not overthinking everything. I was either having a bad day or the sensory and task overload got me. I am ready to go try again this weekend.
  2. My E1 flow was meant to be 2 barrel rolls and 2 flips. It always takes me 5 seconds to stabilize on exit. Barrel roll left and stabilized, barrel roll right and stabilized, to low for more maneuvers. Pass to E2 E2 flow was meant to be front flip, back flip and repeat until altitude limit was reached. The usual 5 seconds to stabilize after exit but had hard time keeping my heading at first. front flip partial to flounder and recover but still rotating for a moment. back flip to flounder and recovery but still rotating for a moment. I never did a complete flip. maneuvers over. E2r same flow. worse exit, long long time to get heading locked, front flip ended up on back and recovered but still rotating a long time. By the time I was stable and had my heading locked it was eyes lock on altimeter time. I seem to be pretty effective at recovery and holding a heading, but stopping my slow rotation and getting locked to a heading initially is eating up a lot of my freefall time. Debriefing shows that my arch needs work and my exit form really just sucks regardless of method. I am almost 60 and not a flexible as I used to be. It was recommended to begin yoga and do stretches along with some tunnel time. My back and neck are so sore stiff and sore right now that I can barely move. Advise, tips, tricks?
  3. Hello everybody. I figured I way as well introduce myself. 2 days ago I began my AFF with ground school. Unfortunately the winds were too high to do any jumps that day, and the forecast was crap for the rest of my planned trip, so I just made the 4 hour drive home. Hopefully I can get back soon to continue my training.
