|Oh no, thats a bad injury! Mine is the LCL (ligament) or maybe a tendon sprain. It wasnt serious but I was limping for awhile and it still aches me now, 5 weeks later. I have to not do jumpin where I lift my knees to chest cause that makes it hurt. It feels better today! I think I will just skate 2 days a week again so it has more rest days. :-(
: Oooohh, Claudine take it easy! Your knee has to heel before you push it to much, I know itīs hard but itīs nessesary. I have a skiing knee so I know what Iīm talking about. My last "crash" was for 3 years ago but I can still feel it in my knee!! My meniscus is hurt and if you once hurt the meniscus it will never heal properbly. The knee is a complicated thing on the body....So you need to take care of your self so you can skate many years from know :-D
: Big get well hug from Majja!!!
: : Well, I finally saw myself skate. I have airplane arms lol! Did others have flailing arms and such when they first started? Does body control come in time? Seems like most people here have been skating since they were wee ones. But if you started later, did you go through an awkward stage? I see why now I am not pumping higher on the ramps cause my form isnt good yet. I never really roller skated til a year ago and just started this summer so I guess I shouldnt expect gracee, but geez, its more like a roller spaz hahaha! Now I understand why I get so hungry after I skate. I'm really good at expending more energy then necessary. :-P
