Today while riding the track I watched a guy exercise his dog on the football field. There's a sign on the chain link fence by the entry to the field that says "No dog training", but there is also probably a "No bikes" rule about the track too, so he, I and the dog peacefully coexisted.
The track gives me a chance to try new moves on the unicycle without worrying about bumps and debris. Today I worked on unweighting. By the end of the week I'd like to be able to stand upwhile riging, so the first small step is to figure how to unweight my butt from the seat. Like everything else on the unicycle, unweighting seems to be a matter of balance and timing. I find I can get a bit of distance off the seat if I apply even pressure to the pedals just as I'm coming up to the 9/3 crank position (is that what some folks call the "power position"?). At first I thought that squeezing my thighs against the saddle helped stabilize my balance, but as I did it more, I wasn't sure it mattered. It was easier to do the elevation with my right foot forward and left foot back, but I worked on the opposite orientation and that was eventually ok too.
I had the feeling that I was pogoing down the track, but I'm sure that my rise and fall was barely perceptible.
The unexpected benefit of this slight unweighting is that it allowed me to reposition myself in the seat for more comfort. Sometimes I find I'm a bit off center after a mount, so unweighting the seat lets me get things adjusted just like unweighting the pedals lets me get my feet centered.
