Ice Skating

Today I went ice-skating with three of my friends. It was really fun. I would have gone more often if it were cheaper. It costs $58.80 for a group of four, but it is for an unlimited number of hours. Cool. It’s not that bad. I fell fown a total of 7 times. My left buttock is still hurting from one particular bad fall. Well, it is a lot less than expected. I kind of expected myself to fall at least 20 times or so. We skated from 12pm to about 4.30pm, with breaks and two times when everyone was ordered out as they had to clear the ice. I had fun, but I also got two huge blisters at the heel. I wore ankle socks, that’s why. It’s not like I want to wear ankle socks, I don’t have any other socks! So, the conclusion is always wear high socks when ice-skating. Haizzz…

At first, I had to hold onto the railing to balance myself. Hello, I have not skated for about 6 years. It is a wonder that I actually managed to stand at all! Anyway, later, I finally managed to skate without holding onto anything, although still a little shaky.

I want to go again! I love it! I am so enviuos of all those people who can skate so well.
