Ice skating

There is a little ice rink at Wrigleyville where I took Nico and his friend last month.  Nico bombed around the rink, going a million miles an hour.  I was ready to go after two laps around the rink.

This is a familiar pattern.  I think ice skating seems like a good idea.  I go.  I do a few laps before I am ready to be done.  It’s really hard.  Like on your feet.  And ankles.  My ankles are pretty garbage.

But I did manage to get off the wall for a few brief moments.

But serious question: why is it so damn hard?  And why do ice skaters make it look so easy.  Like- I should be landing jumps, that is how easy they make it look.  And I can’t even stake without clinging to the wall for dear life.

I think we can safely say that my ice skating career will remain on hold for a while.
