Separated my shoulder back in spring.
A lot of you were instrumental in my healing process with endless amounts of great advice. With this, I approach you again. To help me regain my mojo.
I have been back on my bike a while with a 95% efficiency shoulder that is allowing me to ride aggressively again. I am working on getting fitness back, learning to ride with a slightly different acting joint and just being stoked to be honking down hills again.
My descending and speed skills are coming back at an observable rate but….
When it comes time to put some significant amounts light between the ground and my tires, I get creeping and oft times bike stopping fear. Plenty of jumps, drops and stunts that have been in my rear view for years are now outright scary. Some days confidence is high and its not too much of an issue but a lot of time, I just ride around feeling shitty about it. The one time I did push myself and it resulted in a crash on a formerly elementary stunt.
I know, I know, HTFU and I should punch through but, for some reason, I can't. Others must have experienced being gunshy after a fairly hard injury. Any advice to help a man regain his mojo?
Thanks in advance.
