I think I'm in better shape than I was last weekend. Roller skating was a lot easier this time round, and I'm not in hardly any pain at all. My left hip starting hurting almost right away; something about the way I use it when I skate puts a lot of pressure on the joint. I did quite a bit of yoga and stretching after I got home, and again after getting up this morning, and the pain is mostly gone.
I saw a couple older ladies there that really inspired me. One in particular looked to be over 60 years old. She was tall and thin with the best platinum blonde hair. She was in a skating outfit, one of those jobs professional skaters wear with the cheerleader-panties underneath and the little bitty skirt. Her stockings came all the way down over her skates, just like in figure skating. She had a partner, and they skated around the rink in tandem; they had very serious faces on and they looked lovely. In my head I gave her the name Trudy, and I want to be just like her when I grow up.
Oh, and I only fell once this time!
