My friend had roller blades she was going to give away so she gave them to me. I put them on in her garage, and then was ready to skate, but I needed to get down onto the lower level, which has a very short ramp. Before I skated down, she told me, “Don’t fall”, and I responded, “Psh no I don’t fall”. I rolled down the ramp, which is again, very short, but also pretty steep, so I was going pretty fast, and I tried to slow down, but my legs were getting out from under me. I tried to get them back under me, and like a cartoon, was kicking my legs over and over trying to get them balanced under me. After at least TWO seconds (which is pretty long!) of this, BAM, I fell!
IT WAS HILARIOUS! And of course I fell, because I claimed I wouldn’t 🤦🏻♀️. Duh.
But, in all seriousness, I need to get protective gear! Luckily I only bruised my upper right butt (same leg that has the chronic hip pain and pulled muscle 😱). My right wrist hurt at the time but was fine shortly after. I mostly see people wear knee pads though, nothing for wrists. What protective gear do I need?
Thanks @stclu for the roller blades!
