Back to the bowl!
: : : Finally went back to the bowls! YIPEE!!!!!!! Full butt armor too lol. Still a lump but it doesnt hurt and there is no tightness. But the first time I dropped in I freaked soon after dropping in and had to bail the other side. It took me awhile to losen up. Mentally I was so afraid of falling/reinjury it was hard to keep my body lose. I had to start really slow. But I worked on carving, got to roll into the big bowl, did a few stalls, airs and grabs. Thats all. I didn't think I would do all that!! I got some nice arcs in the big bowl since I'm trying to stay on top the whole way around. It was soooooooooo fun! I'm so darn tired now. I'm sitting at home and I can't move lol. Maybe its time for my nap lol? How can I recover in the next hour so I can take my bike out for a spin? All this sitting from injury has me now wanting to play all day. ;-D My upper body is weak again now too. Any good hints on getting strong again for handplants in 2 weeks lol? I guess do inversions at home? I cant wait!! If you have hints on how to fall on handplants and back stalls without smacking my hips, please tell!
: : :
: : : OK, I will try a video of me rolling next weekend. Nothing big, just a lot of goofy happy smiles and carves with a few airs and stuff like that. Diapers and all lol!
: :
: : sounds like your back on the horse, congratulations.
: : my shoulder is good now too, thanks to joe recomending glaucosamine, ive been chomping 2 a day since i stacked.
: : ive also been a bit hesitant mentally to give it everything, but now ive started to push myself again.
: : went longboarding in the ditch + uni multi story car park at w/end. my 5 yr old rory had his 1st go, he went straight down on his knees got air on the speed hump made the corner just missed the pylon then came to rest next to the car and asked if he could go again, we had a rad day.
: : cheers h.

: Sounds rad! I need to get better at the skateboarding. I seem to be very awkward now on the popsicle sticks lol. I'm more comfy on my longboard.
: Have you tried MSM? Some people have good luck with that too. Glad to hear your wings are doing OK. ;-D
: Mine needs time I think. I want to go skate now but waiting on a phone interview for a job.....sitting....waiting....climbing the walls lol.

I've been taking Glucosamine Chondroitin for months now since my arthritis diagnosis and it seems to help. Nothing is better than just skating for it tho.
Glad you guys are on the mend and rolling again. Ludi, your son reminds me of my son when his was a wee lad...brings back many fond memories. so the little rippers, they're so hooked! We're just a bunch of addicts, huh?
