This is because youre foot is tired. It's like when you're doing push ups and then you can't go any longer since youre arms get so tired. After a while with alot of practice you won't have that problem as often. It's kind of self-explanitory.

I used to be a drummer, dont worrie about it, you will get better with time, and be able to go longer, try pedaling different ways. . .
and its called a " Bass Pedal "

yeah, and it may sound stupid, but do some stretches, and youll find it helps a lot too.

You've been playing the guitar and piano since before I was born.

If your leg gets sore from playing single pedal, don't even look at a double pedal.

wow! thanks dude I looked at your advice at lunch break & then tried it at band practice 'n it really worked, my ankle didn't get tired at all.

When I started the drums 2 years ago my ankle kaned after like 5 mins of drummin but yer it does get way easier as your ankle muscle (whatever it's called) gets bigger n stronger. It's hard for me to do all the awesome stuff that I do cause I'm only on grade 3.

I woudln't be fan without knowing that :) I think the DNA Jem is the most intresting one since he uses his blood in the paint.

The more you practice, the better your stamina will become.

The "word you don't know in english" is bass drum or kick drum.
