For the sake of the full-disclosure theme that this blog tends to carry, I admit that I'm extremely frustrated that my return to skating has not really been as amazing as I had imagined. I have no idea why I would have thought that just because I was released to start skating again, that everything would be completely back to normal and raring to go. It's got me feeling a little lost at the moment. It's just so damn painful and tedious and clumsy. I am an impatient person and don't follow rules well, so temper tantrums are inevitable when these kind of road blocks show up in my life. I guess I just wanted to say all of this to commiserate with anyone else going through it. It sucks, doesn't it?! We'll get through it, though, right? It may be slow, but derby's not going anywhere; it will still be here when we're ready to train at full capacity.
Note the right-dominant scuff marks...I really need
to work on that. (I realize I take a lot of pics of my
legs/feet. If someone with a fetish is reading this...
Fyi - this only counts as 2
beers because it's a sampler.
