I've lost some passion for it. Some. I'm struggling and feel like I'm not getting any better. I know I've gotten a lot better since I started over a year ago but I feel like I've hit a plateau.
I've decided to take a break to miss it. I don't know if it's the best option but it's a last resort. I'm going to work on outdoor skating, weights and general fitness. I'll still do drills once a week rather than two unless studying gets in the way with that too.
I had this week off and I already miss it. I feel like a teenager who's missed a party. It's not an enjoyable feeling but one that I need to work through, I'm (obviously) not a teenager and derby is hard work. It's supposed to be fun though and I'm not walking away happy. That's not what I want.
In six weeks I'll be back stronger and happier.
