It is almost time for the Philly Freestyle Contest!
After nearly 2 months of trying to get my lower back recovered from the goddamned injury I had (for no apparent reason) a few weeks ago, I am finally feeling better. Feeling strong. I started lifting weights this week. Back at Aikido practice ( though I’m taking it kind of easy at first). Feel more like myself.
I have not learned any of the tricks I wanted to get down for this contest. At this point it just probably isn’t going to happen. I will have to go out and just fucking rip with the tricks I can always do, without much practice. Planning to ride a longboard for the contest – a 42″ double kick. So I have just about 1.5 weeks to get a little practice and come up with two 1-minute runs.
I’m up for it. Ready to get this done. Fuck the injury. It is time to focus my attention and energy. I don’t care if I win or not. I’m doing this for me. I’m going to show them a different way of skating.
