I feel like I could write a book on the whys and wherefores of spotting from the wonderful tuition and visualisations several very well respected teachers have given me.... but I still can't spot!!!!!! After much analysis and probably a bit of overthinking it, I feel I have two main shortcomings: 1) I actually can't see the spot point very well in the first place and then the whole of my vision becomes rather a blur until after the turn. 2) I REALLY hate the creaky feeling spotting gives me in my ears so I think I hold my head stiff to avoid this. AAAAGGGHHHH!!!!!! Any suggestions will be gratefully received
