Single pedal triplets

I'm having alot of trouble with these, and for the songs i play its essential i can do it because i cant always rely on the double pedal for triplets, they dont always come out clean.
What i do is I try to slide my foot up the pedal, like i hit once slide it up for the second hit and go down on the third hit but the third hit never comes out right.
For heel up i can only to it slowly.
Any suggestions on how i can make em faster?

Ahh Mike Johnston! That guy's becoming very popular isn't he!

You know what I like about him and his videos. He's real. He has good ideas and explains them clearly and to top it all off he inspires you by showing just how it should be done. Unlike the poor sod from "Epert Vilage" videos....

Anyway, I found if you pratice playing off the pedal, getting the moevement down slowly, then practice on the pedals you don't need to slide deliberately. The movement of your foot will naturally slide down the pedal.

Just my personal experience.
