|Yesterday was my first skate day in a month. I'm still injured, but the swelling has gone down some, the pain is almost gone and there is some flexibility. I just rolled easy in a parking lot with a nice small hill. It was AWESOME! I hope to heal more to try landsdowne next week and hopefully the bowls the week after. I'm sure it will be a month before I can do any lip tricks again but really happy to roll again.
I rode my longboard first and can do some kickturns now while rollin. That Vew-Do board is very helpful! But still not as comfy on the board as my skates. I run off it if it gets going too fast where my skates, no problem! But I love those randall trucks!! They are so turny. Just get wobbly when I start to go fast but I need to learn how to control speed wobbles better or tighten them down?
Then I spent most my time on my new street/vert roller skates. They skate incredibly well! I'm very happy with them. :-D Just a little squeaky so I think I need to add oil to the new pivot cups, what type? Did some slalom and laps, raced a bit. My hip is a touch stiff and swollen today but seems OK. I think I will roll 3 times a week now til its healed. I"m dying to roll the bowls again but happy just to roll.
