Skating is a lot harder than I remembered!
But Jamie had been begging to go skating, so I thought, skating sure seems like it's weight bearing, so off we went. She did pretty well, she had gone a month or so ago with our church group (While I was working) so this was her second time.
I however haven't skated since 2000 or so...My first time around the rink too about 6 or 8 minutes. But by the time 2 hours passed I was able to get around pretty quickly, even faster than Jamie.
It was fun...But I am a bit sore.
We have been walking the dog almost every day, and I need to add something fun to my routine. I am just not a zumba /dancercize type person. I am so uncoordinated! But I can get into the rhythm of skating so we may go more often.
I want to live a long healthy life. I don't want to be a painful cripple like my mom is and like my dad was the last years of his life. So I am taking my Calcium Citrate with D and trying to move this body...the weight bearing way.
I hear strong is the new skinny after all.
