Skates, feet and boards.

My skating plan was pulled forwards yesterday. One of Jonny's friends was having a belated birthday party in the afternoon which involved a pub and many board gamers, however I did have the morning free.

I kitted up with knee pads, wrist guards and skates and went out. I lasted about 10 to 15 minutes due to the agonising cramping my heels were subjecting me to. I then remembered that the last time I tried to ice skate I had the same issue. I tried to push through it and skated up and down a small local path for a while, having established that the basketball court had too much gravel and the pavements outside my house had too many unstable paving slabs, but it was too painful to stick with and I retired defeated.

All was not lost, however. I planned to go out today on my skateboard instead. I am terrible on a skateboard and in this case the ball court is suitable as it slows the travel enough for me to learn to balance on it. I planned that for today as by the time my feet recovered from escaping the skates I didn't really feel like rushing to put the protective gear back on. I figured Sunday was the day for that.

However, sitting in the pub staring at the board game cricked my neck. Overnight it has grown worse and it's painful to turn far in either direction. Plus it's very windy out there which is off putting.

And thus I am taking a lazy day instead and updating a website I look after.
