NSO’d on Saturday for an intra-league scrim. Feel confident in the penalty box now, even though I was all on my own. Also got to do some practice just skating around and doing some basic weaving/strides before the game and at half time.

I said I’d write up a little summary of the scrim, but I was so concentrated on doing the penalty box, that I barely got a chance to watch it!

Also I practiced a bit in the park on Sunday. Was really good even though skating outside again took a bit of getting used to. Watched a video about hockey stops and realised the movement is essentially the same as when doing tight weaving. Practiced weaving a lot. Also did a few toe stop runs, which wasn’t as scary as I’d built it up to be. Starting to get scared of jumping again though.
