Tomorrow I start my aerobatic training!

I'm scheduled to go up with Matt at 4:30 tomorrow. We'll start with a pretty thurough preflight briefing going over the maneuvers and procedures. Once airborne we'll do some steep turns, slow flight and stalls just to get me used to how the airplane feels in different conditions. Once I begin to get used to things we will move on to spins in both directions. We'll finish up with a couple simple aerobatic maneuvers such as the aileron roll and loop. For the purposes of this flight these maneuvers will simply be to acclimate myself to the unusual attitude of aerobatic flying and the G-forces I'll be experiencing throughout the training.
