We did lots of practice on skating technique, stops, falls and speed all of which I learnt new things from. I now know I can do 23 laps in 5 mins(for minimum skills I need to push that up to 25 or more!).
I finally got the hang of t-stops with a combination of advice and tips from at least three different skaters (since I startd skating), tonight it all came together and now I need to practice lots!
I fell a few times tonight too, but in the right way on my pads, no brused bum thank goodness! Also, I think Roller Derby is the thing that is going to make me (finally) learn to love my legs, they are going to be as hard as steel if I keep it up and I can't wait! Lol!
So, thanks to the girls at Cardiff Roller Collective for making me work hard, sweat lots and ache for a few days! I'm totally ready for next Monday night!
