Right before New Years, I skated in Cerritos. So unbelievable. There is simply nothing like skating up there, it's just the best. I had such a fantastic time. It was really crowded and very frightening over in the fast lane so I stayed out of it for the most part. Lots of people do the same style of skating as me around the floor so it was a blast to follow people, or get in a line of five or six people and mimic their steps. So fun to know I can keep up now.
I am just barely returning to a normal skating schedule after my illness. I will definitely remember that I have to stay home on Skate Night when I've been ill. I have so much fun skating, I don't really think of it as an exertion or exercise. I skated last Tuesday for the first time after my sickness. It felt a little weird! Just took me a couple dozen rotations to get comfortable again. Then I was golden.
We are having unbelievable weather right now in San Diego, so after a long two months off, I was able to skate at the beach this past Sunday. It was glorious. Brilliant blue skies, hazy sunshine and a cool breeze coming off the water. I love to be on the wood in the rink, but skating in the sunshine is an experience like no other. Fantastic skating day.
