A thought I’ve bounced off a couple fellow old schoolers. I reckon in some ways I’m skating better now than when I was a kid because I’m thinking about what I’m doing rather than just going balls out.
Don’t get me wrong ‘balls out’ often achieves big results and I’m never going to skate as big as I did when I had no responsibilities. Thinking about what I’m doing, analysing without overdoing it - almost like, but not like say a golf swing has me really enjoying skating and progressing slowly but surely.
Make sense to anyone?
