I am breaking in my new skates. The hard guards on the blades make it so you can basically walk around the house all day to help break them in. I practice standing on one foot, bending with good form and other skating movements. It is kind of tricky when you are not in motion.....but good practice.
I like this photo because it shows my scars. It shows how far I have come. Standing in my skates, healed and strong. I still am weaker on one side and feel the effect of being hit by a truck 10 years ago, to some degree. But hey they told me I may never walk again...and here I am in my family room standing in skates. Living proof that baby steps matter!
