Graduated from my 12 week beginner programme yesterday, having clocked about 40+ hours on-skates. I’m pretty pleased with how far I’ve come, but now I’m getting chucked in at the deep end, as I have to start skating with the big girls in my skating team… This terrifies me!

The graduation training was ace. There were a load of skaters, including some I rarely (never?) meet. I was pretty intimidated at first, but we played some games and there were enough pre-min’s skaters to be able to group up and play nicely.

Need to try my new skates out; I’m excited to see how they fit. Hope my wheels come today too!
