I'm thrilled when I freemount my unicycle and find my balance. But then I often have to do something about my feet. How do you deal with that situation where one foot is where you want it on the pedal, but the other is hanging off or too far forward or aft or just plain uncomfortably wrong? I'm sure not going to dismount now that I'm up there. I've got to figure out how to get the malfunctioning foot repositioned.
Just slightly off topic: I'm surprised to read some Muni blogs that recommend positioning the pedal under the arch. The rationale is that the heel of the boot (also recommended) can be used to stabilize the pedal. Well, probably so when doing whack stuff that I'm not doing (shoot, not contemplating) yet. For my beginnerish riding I like the standard bicycle position with the pedal centered under the ball of the foot.
I've found that there is a very brief window of time where I can squirm my foot over, back, up or whatever, and that window opens when the pedal is rising to the top of its rotation, just before it begins a power stroke. It is hardly a window of time. It seems more like a sliver of light, a crack in time that I can use to slightly shift. It is such a simple thing, repositioning the foot, but it means that successful freemounts aren't waisted.
