wanted to share some advice and a valuable resource for
you, especially if you are new to riding flat pedals.
First, we've found that it takes about 3-4 rides for the
body to get get used to the new foot and body position.
But this doesn't mean that it isn't going to be better
in the long run.
example, if I have someone in the gym who is using their
lower back to help them deadlift and I correct their
body position and how they do it then it will feel weird
at first even though it is the better way to do it.
can adapt to sub-optimal conditions and that is what has
happened with your current foot and body position.
commit to the pedals and the mid-foot position for a few
weeks then your body will start to recognize the better
movement and position and adapt to it.
also use a free course to help you as well.

the world - has put together a program called The 12
