The Skating is Reality Therapy

The skate plan has gone flawlessly so far. After dropping Vivian off at pre-school Tue/Thurs, each day was 40 degrees and sunny at 9:15 AM, with nobody at all there today and a couple guys trickling in as I skated Tuesday.

Did some very low intensity carving in the shallow-end half-bowl Tuesday, got a wheel out backside today. Most importantly successfully fell a few times from coping height onto my kneepads. The key to not hurting yourself isn't skating well, it is falling well.

It looks like the weather will be good for Sunday, and I'll work on dropping in on the mellow Y footie.

Title by C. R. Stecyk III.
