Done? Good. Now you’re up to speed. And you’ll understand why my brain goes
At her guest coaching/running a mini bootcamp for us tonight in Quesnel.
Yeah. It fucking rocked my socks off. Last time I got to train with her was at a Raw Meat session in Vancouver. I had been at the Camp Pivotstar Boot Camp last November but I didn’t get to train with her then. I did, however learn some really awesome things.
And tonight – I learned more things. More awesome derby-ness.
I can’t remember what the first E is. Dammit.
Today I was having a really really really fucked up, really awful type of day. At the end of it, I was just about in tears over a stupid document. It was that bad.
My facebook status was something about not being able to deal with the shit and just being overwhelmed.
3 hours of derby will cure that.
3 hours of 8Mean Wheeler teaching us what to do, and what not to do, and being hit by her, will do that.
The major lesson I’ve learned from tonight – I don’t give very good instructions. I need to be clearer. I need to be more precise. I need to be more descriptive.
I need to be these things in derby, and in life.
I had so much fun. I am in such a good head space. Every Tuesday I come back from derby and think… fuck, I love how I feel. I love how much I could move. I love love love roller derby.
Thank you, Eight Mean for coming up to guest coach. I love love love how much I learned tonight. And I needed to get out of my head.
