No Celery Please – NYC Edition!


Ow Ow Ow. And Also… Ow

Posted in Uncategorized by noceleryplease on September 5, 2008

I went to my first roller derby practice last night.

Ow.

The first set of “skillz” we have to learn are seven different ways to fall

Right knee
Left knee
Double Knee
Right Knee and Spin
Left Knee and Spin
6 Point (knees, elbows and wrists all on the floor)
and
Baseball slide

After two hours last night, I was barely able to walk out the door.

But it was super fun, and a hugetastic workout. (WAAAAY better than any cardio machine).

So while I am being a whiny whiner about the muscles in my thighs that have never been used before (or at least not within recent memory)… I will definitely be going back on Sunday.

Heck, even if I never get the hang of it enough to actually play, it’s worth it for the workout alone.
