We did everything but contact.
And pacing lines. LOL
Falls, stops, crossovers, hops, weaves, glides, squats and self propels. Oh and steps.
And of course, endurance.
I have never, ever, ever, done a 5 min endurance test.
We’ve done it twice in practice and I crapped out after 3 laps – both times.
Today – I pushed myself. I went as far as I could. I pushed as hard as I could.
I did 17 laps.
There’s 2 components to the endurance test. 5 laps in the first minute, and 25 in 5 minutes.
I *think* I did the 5 laps in 1. I only completed 17 in total though.
I should stop there. This is not “only” I COMPLETED 17. I have NEVER completed 17 before. AND I skated 4 1/2 minutes. (Stopped at 4.30 because of my knee) 4 1/2 minutes WITHOUT STOPPING!!!
Me. 270lbs. Couch potatoe extrordinaire. Skated 4 1/2 minutes WITHOUT stopping.
Next session – we’ll be doing checks, hits whips and pushes. I’m looking forward to those 🙂
I’ll be playing in Chilliwack on October 1. That’s my goal. I am STOKED!!
Yay for rink rash!! 🙂
