This Halloween costume is ridiculous. And guess what? It doesn’t even come with pads. http://womensapparel.guidestobuy.com/roller-derby-womens-sexy-roller-skater-costumes-lingerie-outfits
Last Sunday was first practice back. Brutal. Lots more off skates workouts included. I was sore until today (a week later). I couldn’t even walk. I looked like a zombie. Everything hurt. More practices after that — monday, thurs, and then today.
Today was a 4.5 hour practice. OMFG. Dead.
Been trying to alter my diet for better performace / endurance / to lean down weighwise.
Currently looking up derby diets. Got any ideas on what to eat before practices and after? And what about days there are no practice?
I’ll be up to practices 5 days a week soon.
FUCK DERBY DRAMA
It has been a red hot minute since I have been posting here. And I am so so so sorry! I am not entirely even sure what happened.
BUT! A few quick updates!
I have played in 4 official league games on the B team!
I received the most improved award for two of those games!
I have lost 30+ pounds!
And I am now in the process of researching new skated and hardware because mine are getting SHOT.
I’m back. WITH ROLLER-VENGEANCE!!!
I was waiting on gear from a teammate that I had ordered a while ago, and she was late, so I didn’t skate the whole time. But, I wasn’t terribly bummed about that. I did get to scrimmage a decent amount during scrimmage, but couldn’t use my new stuff, because my whole order wasn’t even in the bag…
At least my team awareness is pretty good. Or so I am told. Now I am smelly and tired.
Also, as far as the pack assessments go… We are being retested on our level ones in January first… Just to make sure we are all still fine… but it is supposedly no pressure b/c they said they won’t knock us back to having to redo tryouts if we don’t do as well as we’d hoped. Supposed to just see where we are at? Then more practices, and then pack assessments start.. So that theoretically this break won’t kill us, cause coming back without practicing for so long and holding assessments wouldn’t be too fair. So whoo… I was afraid with all these shenanigans, I would have to re-tryout again because of time stuff.
