My third race is coming up this weekend and I watched a couple videos from last year (there were enough girls to do a girls race yay! but I still wanna race with the guys too for extra experience). My heart is already racing though, I’m so excited but my legs feel like jello already. No matter how many times I race, I will always have those nervous feelings before hand all the way until I’m at the starting line. Then they just go away it seems… so much adrenaline takes over, I forget what nervousness is.
Indie grabs and stale fish are my new favorite tricks to do, mainly because I’m still a chicken and have commitment issues with backside stand ups…. :(
So the skate park was pretty successful tonight! The cops in the parking lot didn’t kick us out (since the park closes at 10:30, haha funny joke right?).
I’m getting really comfortable with rocker fakies and that transition feeling over the coping-it feels nice under my feet now and not all weird. I actually dropped in and did a rocker fakie on the other side earlier today but I kept messing up tonight… oh well that’s what tomorrow is for!
Progress, progress, progress, because we all start somewhere right? Ah park skating is such a rush and shin bruises suck ass.
You don’t realize how much you hurt yourself while park skating until after the adrenaline rush is over. Seriously my shin has a swollen spot the size of ping pong ball on it….
On the bright side, another skater helped me learn how to drop in and rocker fakie on the bigger ramp. ”We all gotta start learning somewhere” he told me and that seriously made my day.
