A CONTINUATION OF MY CHILDHOOD
Category: Personal

Well, I've begun again. The first break was between the ages of 13 and 18. This break was between 19 and 28 so it's a substantial difference. Last time I restarted the habit I picked it right back up. This time around it's a bit more of an ordeal.

The first day out, we probably skated for about 2 hours. I couldn't even fucking ollie. I had lost the touch, but I was bound and determined to get it back. My ankles throb 24 hours a day now, getting back in shape is more painful than I suspected.

I started running on a treadmill around a month ago and the disappointing problem that I would always encounter was that I would go for about half an hour, but then I was done. Spent. Exercise finished. It wasn't fun in the least and it certainly wasn't a sustainable activity. Skating on the other hand is as fun and engaging as it is exhausting. After thirty minutes you're worn the shit out, but you don't have to play mind games with yourself to get yourself to continue; you actually want to continue. At least I do.

I've also learned that Jason's friend John is (or at least used to be) a pretty accomplished skater and has a 4 foot half pipe in his possession. I look forward to breaking my ass open on it one day soon. I'm in so much pain but this is the best I've felt in years. Actually having a physical activity that you want to continue pursuing is great.

me? I just fuck.

Not to be cruel, but if that's your only exercise, you must not last very long.

also...

found this via this list which i found via the sneeze, which i learned about from here. so now you can skate and then play some awesome song about how you just skated. or maybe you could play and be like, "oooooohhhh... i'm gonna totally shred like this. check it." and then when you're done playing then you'll just jump up skate everyone's damned faces off, because that's how hard you were just rockin out on your skateboard guitar. gnarly!

(good morning, everybody. k. k. slider is supposed to come to town today.)
