Rollerblading

These new (used) rollerblades ROCK! They fit like a glove, roll easily (so I can finally coast instead of working to go downhill), and are so much fun. Problem? No stopper. I never fell, but I did bail into the grass once going down a fairly large hill. We have a seven acre park across the street from our house, which has a playground, and a winding walkway all the way around it. My mom sat on a bench watching the kids play - they both only skated on their skate-shoes for a few minutes before they decided they wanted to go play - while I made about 5 circuits around the park. I feel great, all sweaty, and now I need to go take a shower. Whew!

jillions, when do you want to go rollerblading? I can come out there, or you can come over here. Either way.

Sure! Since we can go 1.5 miles with only one 180 degree turn and no hills to worry about, maybe we should do it here. The pavement is a little rough in a couple spots, but it's not too terribly bad. Heck, we could even go down to White Rock Lake sometime. I've been down there a couple times to run in the past two weeks. At least it's not as boring as here!

Cool! Let me know when you're up for it. I don't know how far five times around our park is, but I'm only slightly sore this morning. It seems to be on the inside and outside of my upper thighs, and in my sides at the bottom of my ribcage.

I love it, though. Scott was going to take me out yesterday and buy me a nice pair, and then I came home with a $2 pair from a garage sale *laugh* I had no idea he had that planned. So, he told me last night that if I decide over a couple of months that I still love it, and can get out to skate a couple of times a week, he'll get me a nice pair from somewhere.

Since I have to watch kids shows a lot, I've found a few that I actually like. Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is one of the few I find really funny that the kids watch. :)
