Tonight was the skillz testing at roller derby. I didn’t expect to pass today, but I wanted a benchmark, what I needed to work on and what I’ve got down.
Apparently I had a couple things down that I didn’t think I did.
There was no surprises in what I didn’t pass.
I’m not discouraged. I’ve got my benchmark, and I know what I need to work on over the next couple weeks.
The biggest surprise for me tonight? I skated the whole freaking 5 minutes. All 5 of them. I didn’t crap out, I didn’t quit, I kept going until time was up.
I got 19 – need to up that by 6 – but I got 2 more than the last time I tested.
I am happy with my results.
Some things were pointed out to me tonight… stuff I’m sorta peripherally aware of… but some things were pointed out to me.
I’m hard on myself. I don’t really do self-care well. I’m REALLY hard on myself. And I really really don’t do self-care well.
I’m hoping to have more conversations with her about that… :p
