Over the bump and a neat little kickturn.

Very good summer. Sunny every day, almost. So there are lots of time to go to the skatepark.

New gorgeous wheels.  Feels so smooth.

It is much more fun when I have more than one line to practice.

The kickturn after the bump a guess will open up evern more lines. Still not high enough but practice makes perfect.

I did it

Happy days. The rain that was expected did not happen.  I had the whole park to myself.  So I could do exactly whatever I wanted.

A little ditch, bumps, trying to get up on the bump in the big bowl, mini, the upper bowl and then I tried to start from the second waterfall. Two waterfalls in a row.  The speed became really high by my standards. Luckily there is a long way to help speed out through the pipe. Now one around so I could do over and over again. So fun.

Inch by inch

Spring and as every other spring as far I am injured. March is not a good month. This year I injured myself whilst gardening.  I twisted my knee. Been 4 weeks now and I still have a limp. It hurts when I walk and I don’t quite confident when I skate.
Still I can’t keep away. Now the outdoor season has begun.
I am trying new lines in the larger bowl in Highvalley.  And I practice going up on the bump inch by inch. It’s a bit scary since I am not sure if I can handle what will happen on the other side :).

Kickturn

At last I manage to do kickturns! What an achievement. So now I am pretty content for a while. Though it is not far up at all. Got to go further up. Practice, practice, practice…Higher and higher.

But still this is fun and makes it easier to claim a space in the queue to the half pipe.

Nowadays skating as a beginner and being a lady is not that unique. Quite a few. So next summer Highvalley will be ours!

 

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.
