"You know, the three of us have been living on the edge way too long. When we’re not running from the police, we’re fending off some costumed whack-job. Gotham is worse than ever. That gives us a choice — we can get out, or band together.” - Catwoman
#1 party track
Currently me and my team skate at local curling rink as the ice is off there and it is enough space for us to have a track and space to have the new people practice on their own without feeling frightened by the rest of us. We have also used the local hockey arena once, which is a fair size as well.
Come September we are hoping that we will not only have the above facilities but the highschools as we will be apart of the communities active living guide, giving us use of all facilities in our town since we are a group that promotes activity and health living.
Sometimes though a few girls get together and skate in parking lots. Either at our mall in the parkade (underground parking) that isn’t used anymore or at a local elementary school where the parking lot is well maintained and flat.
”The state is currently spending five times more for the education for a white child than it is fitting to educate a colored child. That means better textbooks for that child than for that child. I say that’s a shame, but my opponent says today is not the day for whites and coloreds to go to the same college. To share the same campus. To walk into the same classroom. Well, would you kindly tell me when that day is gonna come? Is it going to come tomorrow? Is it going to come next week? In a hundred years? Never? No, the time for justice, the time for freedom, and the time for equality is always, is always right now!”
The fact she’s not on The same lists as Emma Stone, Emily Blunt and Anne hathaway is all I need to know about Hollywood

This fucking movie
at a hella cool castle
the groom channeled Thranduil and the Baratheons
the bridesmaids were elf maidens
the court jester and town crier were there
the cakes were gorgeous
luckily a friar was passing through town who was able to officiate (“mawwaige,” he said, “is what bwings us togevver today”)
the bride’s chariot was pulled by the most beautiful creature
unfortunately, as with all medieval weddings, there is the dragon problem
I think part of it for me was the realisation that I’m not necessarily gunna hurt myself! Though I can understand why it’s scary if you’ve been injured in the past. I’d be nervous, too!
I have tons of sports injuries so I am just kinda intimidated right now. In my warm up skate before we start doing anything I work on my crossovers. Doing figure eight sticky skate and trying to get my leg to go over. But it is the same issue I have with my t-stops and my transitions. I just can’t seem to lift my leg enough to do things. I think if I can get one of the three, I will be able to get all of them.
Could well be! Have you ever changed your cushions? Might be worth looking at - On my old, stock R3 ones I got to a point where I couldn’t get my legs to cross in front of each other sticky skating. Partly because they’re really hard and unwilling to move, but also because they were welded to my washers from the pressure ;)
Also to remember about crossovers, it’s not so much about stepping your right leg over as it is pushing your left leg out. You don’t need to step too far over, but you do need to get your underpush. Your right foot kinda falls where your left would have been, if that makes sense?
We did a thing on the other day where you skate in circles, balancing on the very outside edge of your inside foot (so going derby direction, on your left foot) for as long as you physically can. When that foot slips out from under you, you cross your other leg over to catch you, and bam! crossover! I really need to work on my crossovers and getting the maximum power out of them, so I do this quite a bit since they showed it to us :)
And for the love of god make sure your crossovers are smooth. No weird hoppy crossovers, you lose all your power :)
I am thinking of getting new cushions. It might help. I know getting stricktly indoor wheels helped me to be comfortable with sticky skating and going faster. So maybe changing my cushions will help.
That is what I try to remember, but I can’t seem to get my left foot to go out. My right foot can move but left foot, yeah forget about it. But I might try that exercise and suggest it to the team coaches/captain to try that. But I know if there is enough people at practice, we scrimmage. If not, we work on minimal skills.
Yeah no hoppy. I know my teams captain does it sometimes, more so when she is showing us something and she looses her power. But she also is skating without toe stops right now but apparently it helps you with your edge work.
