I took today off, and this morning met some friends up the City of Allen skatepark. I haven’t been to the park in nearly a year — since my knee started bothering me.
Nearly a year of cycling and Aikido seem to have healed the knee. I will take it easy, of course, and use some anti-inflamatories, but it felt pretty strong today. I was able to pump the transitions with power and keep my speed pretty well. Really, I would say I skated pretty well. Felt the speed and flow just right. I guess 35 years of skateboarding helps. You just don’t forget the basics.
