For the past few years I've had a dream. A pretty big dream that until now I haven't worked towards. While pregnant I decided that it was time. It was time I started following my dream. That dream is to play Roller Derby.
My closest league is having a fresh meat intake in June. That means I have to be fit, healthy and comfortable on quad skates by then. Seeing as I'm not allowed to exercise for another month at least I'm going to need to have a good training schedule. I've started walking a bit already, nothing strenuous just enough to get a bit fitter than I would sitting on the couch all day.
The mister is so excited. He's already on a fitness journey, riding to and from work daily, and can't wait to 'train' me. We have plans. So many plans. All I need now is exercise gear and a skates. I've got my eyes set on a Fresh Meat pack but it's over $500. Why did I have to choose a sport that has such expensive outlays? Luckily I have awesome tights and socks already.
My mum is freaking out thinking I'm going to get badly injured or killed. My dad used to go watch roller derby back in the 60's/70's which I think is awesome and his blessing for me to enter. The mister is excited and impressed that I'm still so motivated.
I'll be blogging about my fitness and roller derby journey. I don't need to lose weight so I won't be updating that (I also don't own scales) but I will update with photos and how I feel, physically and mentally.
I just want to get fit, have fun, skate fast, skate low and block some bitches with my booty.
