Winter Cross Training: Derby Lite
A friend and I enrolled in a roller derby style fitness program called Derby Lite. Starting in January 2011 I'll be reacquainting myself with a pair of roller skates. I know how to skate, I just haven't done it in about 5 years. About a year ago I had the crazy idea to join a real roller derby team. The kind where the girls violently shove each other, get busted lips, and occasionally break a bone.
I did not go through with it, thankfully. My friend came across this derby fitness class which is a bit more civil. The course focuses and the drills real derby girls use to train. Being limited to running on the treadmill the next few months, this 12 week course will be a nice cross-training activity to stave off workout routine boredom.
