Skating in the living room

Ahhhh laminate flooring.

I had a lot of trouble with my t-stops at the first session so I thought I should give them a go in the comfort of my own living room…. much better! Now I’m working on learning how to go from forward skate to backward skate in one smooth motion.. so far it’s not so smooth. My mantra is “trust your skate, trust your skate…”; but so far, no dice. I think that one might be easier practiced in the gym with full safety gear.

I went for the last run of “week 1” of couch to 5 k…. oh, I so did not feel like running tonight. My knees and butt hurt so much from Fresh Meat that I just wasn’t feeling the run for today. I made it through… but still feel a bit nauseous… I think I will have a nice cup of tea and then chase it down with a beer and Hell on Wheels. How’s that for a Sunday night?



  1. Trust your skate…. So glad to hear the Fresh Meat session went well! I’d love to go to the next Disco, keep me in the loop about when they’re happening!

    Great blog, I’ll definitely follow your derby updates! 🙂

    • absolutely 🙂 I hope you can come along.. it’s a fun time!

  2. I’ve recently found your blog and I wanted to say thank you for documenting your journey to becoming a rollergirl. I’m going through the same path myself and It’s awesome to hear that someone else feels the same way I do. Thank you!

    • Thanks for your comment! I’m always surprised and excited to find out someone actually reads this lil ol blog 🙂
