Many of us have done the same thing. While the MSF teaches left foot down first (as part of the beginner training) I also tell my MSF students to scan/search their stops as much as other cycle riding that requires visual control. Scan/search, and plan before you make the stop, know where your foot will go down and know what to expect. RIDE on!
