My decision to “take it easy” during May, and let my body recover from its normal abuse, has been hard to maintain, but the month is almost over.
Yesterday I finally got a little skating in. My friend and I went ditch skating, then went and did a little freestyle. Allergies are really bad at this time of the year, and we both suffered for our art.
I had been holding off on practicing FS because I felt I was getting “stale”. So it was really cool to go back out, after 3 weeks or so, and land everything I tried. That tells me I made the right decision.
It has been a rough few weeks to try to work in some skating. Allegies have been killing me, just making me feel worn out.
I did decide that when I go to Germany this summer I will enter the “street” as well as the freestyle contests. Why not? I’m there.
Street, of course, means whatever you can do in that little park. That means I need to practice a few appropriate tricks, which is cool and will be fun. Honestly, in the next two months it’s not like I’m going to suddenly learn 15 new freestyle tricks. I just need to be good at what I already can do.
