Easy come easy go

Morning carve and afternoon wooden miniramp. Thought it was time to try drop in. Got a ramp an hour away with lots of different levels and a spine. I just wanted to check this out. Not ready for it.

Well it was depressive expirience. I was not very good at kickturns or anything at all. Completely lost the feeling. Took some time to get started.

I prefer carving.

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.

Sunny Sunday evening skate

I would very much like to pass my set up shamelevel! Then I could skate even when the mini is crowded. Which it is pretty much always. I wait and surf every newspaper there is until we’re alone. Much waiting, little skating!
Well I do realize that pushing in the bottom to get going would be much easier if I was more tougher, starting with more speed and higher up.  That injury wasn’t that great. Now I am overly cautious! This might take some time to forget. Well I am stubborn as hell so I someday will come. Right now I am stuck getting nowhere.IMG_20140609_104616

This is a small tornado by the way.

Waiting for the ramp

Today the mini is crowded! What a disappointing evening. Bit rainy, cold, crowded…Waiting, sitting, watching.

My turn maybe soon. Or not.

I like to concentrate and focus. That is much needed when you try to get speed in the bottom of the mini. It is almost like some kind of meditation.

We are going to build a mini of our own tough it seems like our mini will be much steeper. Hm will be even harder then I suppose 😦
