Skate late

Now I’ve  achieved what I intended.  To some extent. It is never to late to skate.  It’s a fun form of excersise.
Unlike running in skating you have to  learn new stuff. It’s not only about getting more fit. One day something, like manage to kickturn, seems totally impossible. Then all of a sudden it works. That’s a superfun feeling.
The last year ladyskating has become quite popular and lots of ladies, mostly in their 20s or 30s, have begun. That’s cool.
I am quite unsociable so I keep out of that stuff. I like the meditative part of skating. It’s stress relieving and an antidepressant.
Now I come to the point where I almost have no trouble admitting what kind of exercise I practice. I am no longer a bystander.


No more limp

My foot is almost recovered. I can make manuals at home. Still feeling some pain but might mostly be part of the lack of mobility. Haven´t been doing enough rehab exercises.

It does not feel as bad as I feared to skate again. Trying the mini ramp. I think I will wait a bit until I get back to skating in Highvalley.
Two months without skating is actually quite sad. I have been missing it.



A slight limp

It is March and a sunny day.  Time for the  outdoor miniramp. In the back of my mind, I have the memory of last March. It´s one and one week since my unfortunate crash with concrete. Dislocated and fractured shoulder and months of rest from skating. That made me a coward. Or so I thought. It was fun. I have such I hard time to turn so the mini all by my self but my mentor is great.

We had the cold-store all to ourselves yesterday. Mini, vert and pool. Still very, very little progress. It is easier if your not as cowardly as I am. But then falling hurts so much.

The sun make shadows in the ramp. I can see how stiff and unstable I look 🙂

Well had a good and successful session and was about to go home. Just one bert for a change to all turns and then home. Not good at all. I fell badly. How on earth that is possible when doing a bert. Fell over my foot and sprained my ankle…hopefully only a spraining.Pretty swollen now and my knee is hurting too. So incredibly stupid! Now I have to rest again and what ever advances I have done will be wiped out. I feel very,very sad and miserable. Just as I thought I was about a breakthrough.

Hope I can work. Got to work. No way I can stay at home.
