Today I was able to have a test practice with the Rockin’ City Roller Girls derby team. It was so much fun. Everyone was really nice and friendly. It was also great just to be back on skates. I don’t have a lot of free time when I can strap on a pair of skates and practice. I definitely want to continue to practice once a week. It’s such great exercise. I haven’t been doing a very good job of running a few times a week. It would be good to have a mandatory practice once or twice a week. I would love to make their Wednesday practices work but I’m not sure i can get there in time after. I may just have to give it a try to see how it goes. I better step it up with the running as well. I’m going to try and get a couple of runs in this week due to the holiday. Hopefully it won’t be so cold that it deters me from running. I do not like to be cold.
Im really excited to join their league in the beginning of the year. It’s great to have a league closer to where I live. Driving way down to south Austin every week was just going to be to far for me. It will also be fun to see the league change as it grows. It’s fairly new and it has a great group of ladies so far so I think everyone will see good things from them.
After skating today I realized I need some new gear. My wrist guards look like they may be unraveling. They are also pretty worn. I’m going to have to make a list of things I would like to replace so I don’t forget and can slowly replace one thing at a time. I also notices the Velcro strap on my skates is pulling away from the leather. The stitching that holds it on is pulling loose. Hopefully they will last a while longer. New skates are not on the list anytime soon. 🙂
Well I hope everyone else is having a great Sunday. I’ll try to post some more and stop disappearing.
