Derby Lite Winter 2011

Monday was the last night for Derby Lite practice. It was a fun time! I thought I was a good skater before the class, not really. Skating is really about being comfortable on wheels (duh). Sounds simple, but if you're all tensed up afraid of falling, you will. If there's one thing I learned it's that falling is ok! With the right protective gear, falling won't matter. As far as the workout, skating is great for strength training. Skating works muscles I don't normally use when running. My bum and a weird section of my quads were definitely sore after a few practices. I may again take the course next Winter. It's a bit pricey, but it is nice that the session is long at twelve weeks. Here are a few pics from our last practice.
