: The bike weighs a lot less then slamming my whole body but taking it slowly cause lifting too much weight sometimes gives me muscle spasms and at times I have soreness at the end of the plate, not where the fracture is. So far my Dr. said once its no big deal but taking it slowly. He said with the spasms lessen lifting but this week so far OK!
: I guess its OK to go slowly. Still not sure when insurance ends. I dont think the baby bowl would make me fall hard enough to break anything though. I just get bored if I dont try something with some challenge or more excitement. But now I hear its going to rain again. It seems to rain almost non stop here recently!! :-O Yeah, April showers, blah.......

dont kid yourself, small bowls can still cause fractures, treat them all with respect. hey, i fell off the board and banged myself up. my advice is get onto the biggest 1/2 pipe and just work it fakie + kickturning to regain confidence. dont forget, the bigger the transition the more forgiving to roll, ie. time to plan ahead. practise bailing aswell. most importantly stay within the envelope.
ok nuf sed, get on the horse and have some fun.
cheers, h .

: : How does your arm deal with riding your bike?I would have thought if your arms up for riding then skating is also on the cards,,carefuly of course.
: : I say go and ride a ramp and teach yourself to bail to your knees,so handy and not real risky while learning.

: : : I'm really dying to roll the bowls again! Just I'm craving to do more. I kinda feel like its a tease to roll so been trying to focus that crave to do tricks on my bike and uni as I find this is fairly safe and my skill level is less so dont need to do risky tricks. But as much fun as I'm having I want to roll with the skates. What can I do to push myself that doesnt put me at risk right now so I dont feel like I'm being teased? By that I mean I cant get the rush if I'm just carving. Even the curbs tempt me a lot as I dont know if they are risky or just fun to jump off lol. In my head I want to fly. My BMX does a good job, for some reason still want to do it on skates. ;-P
