Even your position in January 2016 was better than mine starting from scratch! I feel like my progress is soooo sloowwww... but I have to remind myself that I had never done this before and that even people who have been riding for years are always seeking to improve. All things come in time, as long as you're invested in something you love, it's worth it.
