That last post really made me feel great. I’m going to do it again.
Tonight I went to visit the Skate Free or Die girls for their Thursday night practice, and I felt great about the following things, again, in reverse order:
1. I gave a few good whips.
2. I managed to stay on my feet when I suddenly found myself skating one-legged after dodging a fallen skater. I also didn’t smack Doom in the face when I had to use my right arm for balance.
3. I finally really get the art of looking over only one shoulder when booty blocking. The idea that "when you can’t see her, you know to move that way" never clicked before and I tended to rely more on really good guesses.
4. When I did fall down, I landed immediately on both knees, rockstar style. I had no idea I was even doing it, but my body just took over. Hooray for muscle memory!!!
Oh, and I suppose I could add doing this practice after Speedy Dan, which was pretty exhausting. Here’s to my quads for refusing to give up.
