Skating the blues away through fear

It’s just a passing thought, one I’ve been struggling with for about three months: my skating is lackluster, I don’t feel challenged.  What to do?

For me the answer seems to be that I need to scare the hell out of myself, even if I don’t have health insurance.

I am now trying a one-foot spin on my SEBAs.  Success?  Sort of. I’ve only been working on it for a week but I got two revolutions out of it and I did it on the second wheel, not the first one. It makes more sense but it’s a tricky balance. It goes without saying that I’m on rockered skates. Two revolutions, WooHoo!  But my heart is in my throat and I don’t think I breath the whole time.

Eleanor Roosevelt said we should do one thing every day that scares us.  I think that 20 attempts at the spin is good for a week.


  1. Hey there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group?
    There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Many thanks
