Crash and Bleed......

Well .... my roller skates came in the mail today. I was so excited!! I put one on to make sure the shoe size was correct (it was) and then I decided to do my workout today on the track near our house with my new skates.

The track that is near our house is all concrete.... and its quite hilly. A little bit more hilly than I remembered when I would just walk it. Let me tell you that hills look a lot bigger when you have wheels attached to your feet.

Well before I even got to the track I knew I was in trouble. I put my skates on in the car and then pushed off towards the track..... uhoh.... a curb. Yep - that was my first crash. Maybe getting used to these skates first would have been a better idea. Oh well.... I'll just go slow.

"I'll just go slow" going slow..... going slow.... going slow...... first hill. I stood at the top of the first hill for about a minute trying to think through how I would go slowly down it. Guess what, there is no way to go slowly down a hill on roller skates....... Oh yeah - plus the path down this hill curves in two directions.

As soon as I push off down the hill I realize I'm just gonna have to try to live through this and that I am a dumb dumb. I am not sure whether I was screaming in my head or out loud but all I remember is going "DON'T DIE, DON'T DIE, DON'T DIE".

Well I didn't die but I did crash down onto my wrist and my rear end. I am a little scraped up and I am sure I will have a butt bruise for a while.

I think the only person who saw me was a man walking two poodles. But I figure he's a GUY walking two poodles so maybe he's just as embarrassed as I am.... who knows.

I sat where I crashed and took my skates off (I was still only half way down the hill) and walked back to my car. Kevin and I really can't afford any broken bones right now!! So anyway, my plan is to wear them around the house a bit while I get my balance and control before I head back out.

(PS - this is my second band-aid of the day..... first one was when I slammed my foot into a walmart shopping cart..... I was bleeding all in my flip flop. I guess that was good because it reminded me I needed to get more band-aids)

IN OTHER NEWS, I finished the no sweets challenge!! Whoo hoo!!! I treated myself to a sprite today and boy was it yummy! Now I am waiting for the next challenge! Bring it on!!!

I had a fun time with my sisters and my mom this weekend! We took her senior pictures and that was a workout in its self! My legs are still sore from all the walking and moving around I did to get the best shot! But its worth it of course!

I think I am only going to post my stats on Thursdays. Once a week is enough for me :)

I need a nap.... this has been a long bloody day.....

WOw!! That's pretty much all I can say!! And - I guess now you know why I can never get roller skates while living in San Marcos!

Bob said...

Were you wearing a helmet? How about elbow and knee guards? It looks like your pride is hurt more than anything else. LET'S KEEP IT THAT WAY!!!

Ara said...

Well, I thought I would be going slow and not have to worry about falling (as I said I realized I was being dumb). This weekend I will be getting some safety gear!

Yeah - San Marcos would kill me in skates!
