A lot has happened lately & I am going to try to write daily from now on – IF there is anything to talk about.
November 1st was the Assessment for anyone signing up for the team. I was nervous even though I knew they had to let me in LOL. After I signed all my forms & paid the dues I was official!
Last Saturday was the first Minnow class for the 11 new girls on the team. It was really really hard & I’m still surprised that at no time did my legs simply give out. But I loved it! The Coach & teachers (derby girls Anya Dixon, Bellicose Blondie & Little Debbie Smackcakes & speed skater Brad Wallace) are amazing & so encouraging. I look forward to the next one.
I finally came up with a new schedule for workouts. I will be taking a couple workout classes during the week & I’ll be missing Sunday & Wednesday practices to accommodate that (for now). I know that with the classes & continuing to skate I can only improve!
Last night was the first team practice I attended as an official Minnow! We did some stretching & then did 5 rounds of: 15 sit-ups/crunches, 10 pushups, 8 squats, 5 burpees for time. I was last at 13:33. Then we watched the scrimmage & tried to come up with questions about it. A nice first night.
