Really, really want to get started on this. However I’m running a 10k in May and already have a slightly dodgy ankle so can’t really risk hurting it by falling over skating. So it will have to wait til my run is done :( 13 months ago
How I did it: Well...the goal was to 'learn' how to skate. Though this term seems a little generous in terms of what I actually accomplished. I will still mark this goal as DONE.
I had totally lost sight of this goal, and hadn't realized (until an observant Brian pointed out =) that it had been YEARS since I originally made this goal for myself. EEeeeh! How embarrassing.
So, I quickly made plans to tackle it before my birthday. I asked a friend to assist, but, she backed out. In the past, this would have been an easy excuse to back out, but, I'm truly committed to moving forward and being present in each day. My niece was staying with me the weekend before last.
"I made you breakfast, and got you to your tournament on time. Now you owe me. Grab those skates and lets go!"
It was kind of hasty, and unplanned. And, I should have allowed for more time, but I was determined to get down to the public skating before it got too late. I thought, "I can Rollerblade, so, how hard could this really be?" For an hour, my niece stifled her giggles and helped me to...let's call it skate.
I wobbled. I flinched forward and backwards. I fell, and I GOT UP. It wasn't pretty, but, it was the closest thing to skating that I could manage wthout seriously injuring myself. I think the only thing that was really bruised was my ego. I have to admit though. I'm no spring chicken. I woke up aching in places that I just shouldn't ache.
Love my niece for helping me achieve this goal. She minimized my public humiliation.
I have to practice more to officially call it skating =) Read how I did it… 14 months ago
Well, my friend has so graciously volunteered to help me execute this goal whilst maintaining some degree of dignity. Knowing that I would appear absolutely ridiculous (and somewhat crazy) flailing solo around in public, I will at least have a friend to skate beside me yelling, “It’s okay! She’s not having a seizure…just give her room and she’ll be fine!”
So, this Saturday, we are heading down to Harbourfront to skate on their open rink. It’s definitely not the Rideau, but it will do. I think I may bring a pillow just in case =) 15 months ago
