I had an awesome time at boot camp Monday! We started off by free skating to warm up. The wheels on those skates were MUCH slicker than the ones I used last week, so it took me a while to adjust.
They started us off by talking to us. They gave us a history of their league, talked travel games, helping in the community, etc. Then we reviewed the things we learned the first week and I immediately realized I had a pulled groin muscle. Well, both really, but the right side is much worse. I did the best I could, but OUCH! I use that muscle for all of the stops and for getting back up. Just...ouch. Anyway, after the review, we learned a few new falls. Then they set up cones for us to weave in and out of. I did that really well...until one pass and I busted my hiney. I'm fairly certain it was caught on camera too. A guy was filming nearly the entire time. I haven't seen anything posted...yet.
Next up, we created a pace line to weave in and out of. The entire group formed a line and skated around the rink. The person in the back weaved in and out until they were in the front. Guess what. I fell during that too. But was yelled at "Good fall!" I can fall really well now :) Anyway, I quickly hopped back up and finished. Let's see, then we worked on pushes and whips. I did really well with the pushes but lost my balance when I tried to whip Ebbin Flow. She did tell me something though. She said that they can all see that I can skate and have good balance and that they're very excited about me. So...GO ME! :)
After that, we were finished. Those two hours really do go quickly but I've learned so much.
I'm sore. But not as sore as I was at this time last week. Last week was rough! I couldn't work out until like Friday. I was able to work out last night (Tuesday night) so I'm doing much better. :) I can already see a difference in my leg muscles and my arms/shoulders are sore so I know they're getting a work out. WOOHOO!
