Second post of this kind and I’m already late.. Guess I’m having some kind of writer’s block. So weird. Some weeks I could write every day, some other weeks I don’t even feel like turning on my computer.
Anyway.. I couldn’t remember what I did last week (probably nothing, or something not worth mentionning) so I’ll just start off with the past week.
Monday & Wednesday (14th & 16th of April)
Roller-derby practices! We started off with a few new drills, and like Suzy Hotrod says “Edges, edges, edges!”. It seems so easy, but in the meanwhile it is anything but.. Finally finally managed to skate 27 laps within 5 minutes. This was my neverending battle but I did it!
Tuesday (15th of April)
Shame on me, I didn’t do anything. I was so tired and didn’t get enough for a few nights. And then I decided I wanted to finish my book, and still didn’t get enough sleep.
Thursday (17th of April)
So this friend of mine is going to the gym. something I haven’t done for about a year or so. Too expensive, not motivated, etc.. I had tons of excuses. But his gym has a special rewarding system. The more you work out, the less you pay. Which I thought was I really good deal. So after work I went there for a free practice.
- 20 min Warming-up on my favorite machine: the Crossover. Unlike a regular crosstrainer, you make a movement just like you’re skating.
- Planking, crunches, push-ups, etc..
- Running for 20 min, 8km/hour.
- And stretching!
Friday (18th of April)
Once again: gym! Pretty much same routine as the day before, except that I ran a little but faster: 8.5km/hour.
Saturday & Sunday (19th & 20th of April)
No gym today because this was bout-day! Unfortunately not for me, but for one of my favorite leagues, the One Love Roller Dolls from Antwerp, Belgium. With a few teammates we went to see their double-header against Paris. The OLRD played against Paris B-team, and Go Go Gent (also a Belgian league) against Paris A-team. Really great to watch these teams battle each-other.
Sunday the gym was closed, so I took this day to do a lot of cleaning and other little things on my To Do-list. That evening we went to see Halestorm in the Melkweg, Amsterdam! So awesome to end the week with some good rock ‘n roll.
