Skate party!

Last night I was feeling a bit bummed about my stupid elbow. Here’s why:

What my elbow should look like

What my elbow actually looked like

So, I decided to make myself feel better I should throw myself a little skate party in my carpeted basement.

Skates on carpet. Cause I can roll like that.

So on went the skates, out came the beer (I wasn’t entirely alone… hubbywas playing video games within arms reach), and away I went. Really, I was mostly trying to get the hang of walking on my toestops because I’m told eventually this will be the way to take off quickly… so I did that quite a bit. I also practiced doing the walking-crossovers in skates…. with the stability provided  by the carpet this was a really easy exercise…. I’m hoping to encourage some form of muscle memory for when I do this on the concrete. Also, much to hubby (Jon, btw)’s displeasure I practiced my t-stops… repeatedly… like a lot… we have a really firm berber carpet in the basement so it actually is possible to do.. again I’m just trying to encourage my muscles to learn the form. And the berber is none the worse for wear. I went to the doctor this afternoon and he thinks that I’ve just strained the tendons in my arm… I had an x-ray, and no news is good news! So if the doctor is right, and I suspect he is since I’m starting to feel better already, then I should be back to normal in 4-10 days 😀

Here’s another shot just for fun… the skates are sure-grip rebel, the wheels are flat-outs, and the bearings are bones reds.
