I've got an idea!
How about pulling an old mattress out of the dumpster and practicing flips onto that! Or get yourself a trampoline thats 14' at least with enclosed sides and try for a double! Or do they have adult gymnastics? I just found out they do around here, just I cant afford that either and you need a Drs. release lol. It wont be the same as on your skates but it will get your body ready for it and be some fun!

Now you tell me, what can I do for fun without my foot lol? Tomorrow I'm sk8n again but I want to go back to the park. Its only been 9 days since I skated the bowls, but it feels more like 9 months. I tried to go to the gym again today, yesterday too and didnt, I just dont like lifting, I just want to roll!

: Ok, so here is a question and I am mostly asking just to hear some different opinions. I started a new job about two months ago and I don't get insurance until November 1st. I am trying to get short term insurance, but I don't think they will insure me because of my recent surgery. I can either risk a month with out insurance or make back payments for my COBRA, which is continuation of the coverage I had. I can either fork out $810 to be covered for next month or risk it. What would you guys do? As I said, just curous and thought this would be an interesting post. If I get hurt, it could cost over $12,000. I really don't want to spend the money, but peace of mind and protection from being put in a bad financial situation is where I am at. I have been playing it really safe and really don't fall, but it only takes one fall. If I do pay the $810, then it might allow me to step up and start skating hard. What do you all think? I am dying to try some old tricks and am so ready to do a flip. Should I just keep it mellow or get the insurance and security and skate the way I am ment to? I realize this is a personal decision, but am interested to hear from my fellow skaters.
