I bought skates at Tim’s. They’re good, comfortable skates! I always tended to make the excuse that my ankles are too weak to skate, but skating just looks like too much fun, so I decided to take action. It turns out my ankles aren’t too weak. Today I went to the Memorial Arena in Navan and just skated around, learning things like how not to fall down, how to go forward, how to turn, etc. There was a nice guy at the arena who encouraged me and gave me pointers on how not to fall down. Thanks, dude, wherever you are now.
Now I’m in love with skating. Tomorrow’s lesson is how to stop without using the boards.
