derby kicked my ass last night. kicked. my. ass.

After 5 minutes of laps of stretching (squats, knees & knee drops), we have a new thing of "100 laps" which he wants us to complete in under 20 minutes. And it's hard. and I skated on the inside track with the newer girls (i haven't skated in a year) which means i had shorter laps to make. After that, I thought I was done. But, another 30 minutes of skills work and then 30 minutes of an on-floor hard fucking workout. Think military style hardcore training w/ 10 second breaks. I made it through it though.

I just realized I didn't take my sweat soaked pads outta my bag last night before i hit the shower and promptly passed out. gross. must do that tonight.

Whoa, roller derby is hardcore! I got exhausted just reading that.

I bet it makes you feel good, though!

I'm totally jealous.

I used to rollerblade all the time as my primary exercise -- but seriously I am a total wuss when it comes to pain. I could never do roller derby -- but I love the girls who do!

Take care of yourself!!

I just knew I could never hack derby!

Good thing that you can. Thanks for letting me (and a few choice others) live vicariously through you.

Nice job, you!

Man, talk about a workout!! The first (and last time) I rollerbladed, I went up a small hill and was coming down, freaked out, and ended up scraping up my knees and elbows. So I admire your skill at being able to go in circles!! :)

Whoa and wow! I sure give you a lot of credit for even making the effort. Keep it up!
