Skating? Yeah, I'm a natural!

Just in case anyone was concerned I'd broken my brains out on skates, I'm glad to report that I've gone skating TWICE so far, and I'm getting better!

Yesterday I did six laps round the rink - and I enlisted a couple of complete strangers as cheerleaders, who pumped their fists in the air and spurred me on!  (I made it clear that I was a first-timer, so ANYTHING I did was amazing).

We put our skates on tonight again, and this time I did TWELVE laps around the rink, and it took exactly the same time (45 minutes) as the six I did yesterday.  And I haven't fallen once ....yet!


  1. Yeah!!! Good for you! I know that is a fun time, and you should feel really good about doing this. Way to go!

  2. I hope you're enjoying learning how to skate. It sounds as tho you're making great progress. Practice, practice, practice.
