Yesterday at the outdoor mini ramp I suddenly managed to do kickturns. Today we were indoors. And I kept on doing kickturns in the mini. So cool and fun. I can keep on going on forever. That’s a very cool feeling.
Well what’s next?
And then drop in.
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.
Just started my carving career in one of the pools in HV. Slowmotion carving since I know what can go wrong when you ride in concrete pool.
Then autumn hit us. Rainy, windy, chili!
So indoor season starts again. Well at least some days are just awful.
The outdoor coldstore mini is OK some days. Weather is very changeable.
In the mini, both inside the coldstore and outside is now conquered. I can pick upp speed and go as high up as I dare.
Now I am on to making kickturns and starting up in the slope, jumping on to the deck. Scary. All this stuff is so basic they don’t even have names :).
Well exept for kickturn.
I am better at kickturns now since I realised that I was busy looking at the deck and my feet. That’s wrong!
Turn you head in the new direction and voilà suddenly it is much easier.
It is just like being a child again! The joy when something works.
I don’t care that much if the coldstore is a bit crowded anymore. Still skate where there is an empty spot.
The whole hall to ourselves. Perfect. I do know how to pump a little now. It is very good exercise. I am totally exhausted after a short time back and forth.
Got inspired by seeing guys that are better than me, but not a lot better. Might be some hope for me 🙂 Just keep on!
Now I´ve been to the miniramp and in the coldstore. Kind of starting to be able to push and keep rolling for a while. And that is just such a great, fun, cool feeling to finally manage…just like learning to bike 🙂 It suddenly just works. Not for long and not high up i the ramp but it works.
I would like to skate the vert in the bottom and just surf up and round. Seems so cool.
Will be my next goal, to dare skate in the big ramp again.
Yesterday it was completely empty. And I like that.
Not a single person. Empty.
I am kind of pleased with myself. I have that feeling of flow in the mini! Really great feeling. Get tired very fast. This is good training for your legs and feet! The balancing is hard training for the small muscles in the feet. And for heart and lungs. Doesn’t take long before I have to rest. Maybe it is partly due to the long awaited summerheat. Short sessions as often as possible.
Today was great, great fun. I managed to roll back and forth in the mini! Had to give myself an extra push every now and then. But it was so, so fun and I felt so happy. It is much less boring when I can vary what I do. Mini, cruise down the slope, turn around while rolling, turn in the mini.
It gave me the urge back. Now it seems like I manage to do what I set out as my goals. They aren’t that high. 😀
Today we were on our own. Very good. I could try a little bit of all sorts of stuff. The mini, cruise, turns…
The mini is not my favorite ramp. Hard for me. The indoor mini is probably better but can’t be indoors in the summertime.
Realized what was the matter, some virus. Can’t skate, can’t run. Taking some days off. Hopefully things will feel better next time. Still working on getting flow and speed. This is really a longterm project. The injury was a bad bad drawback!
I so want to skate and get a little better. Maybe swirl or what ever it’s called.
Portugal had a bad day and so did I. Nothing works. It is actually a little boring. Might be the fact that my muscles qre aching. Watch someone doing rocknroll shuffle 70ies style.
But I will have a better day next time. Pity I lost my confidence a bit. Maybe I miss the ditch. Tomorrow I will go to the HV. Need a fun sesh.
