I must be out of my mind. I went skating again tonight (the second time in a week), even though its like 30 degrees outside. It’s freaking cold, man! I dunno what came over me, though. I just really wanted to go skating all of a sudden, so I called up Kevin and we went to Liberty Park and screwed around for a bit in the biting cold. It was really fun, and I totally sucked at landing anything because I haven’t been in at least six months.
Then, tonight, it was equally cold, but I went to Fairmont and was just screwing around. Good times. I really wanted to get a picture of the skate park, since it’s half covered with snow, but there’s enough melted that you can actually go around it in places. Instead of that, here’s a picture of me drawing pictures.
I think I learned a good trick though to skating tonight. Just freaking relax. I realized the other day that I get totally tense when I’m poised to ollie or shuvit and it’s totally working against me. So, tonight I tried to just relax and try and pop it a couple dozen times no matter how poised or ready I felt. It wasn’t very effective practice, but I did *try* a lot more, so that was good. I landed one ollie, I think. Barely. I’m not sure I really went in the air, actually. But who cares. I went out, I had fun, it was worth it.
