I suddenly have this overwhelming need to buy skates…:teehee: I’m getting back to exercising, and yesterday while walking around my driveway (it’s poured concrete and about like a jogging track in size & length…it’s all wooded, so it’s quite nice to walk in)…So as I’m jamming to some of my favorite awesome Gospel music & walking I suddenly realized this would be a [B]whole[/B] lot more fun on skates. :cheering:
Mind you, I haven’t skated in over 20 years & I’ll probably bust my butt, but I always loved it. Back then we only had the quad style skates, you know, 2 wheels on each side…and upon looking online I see they are coming back (perhaps):
But since inline skates are now an option, and I’ve never skated on them, I’m afraid to buy them and not be able to handle it. I know I can handle the quads.
So which should I get??? :hmm: Is it possible the inlines are easier to balance upon? Easier to skate on? It seems the old quad-style might be harder on the ankles than the inlines. But that’s just conjecture on my part. Anyone experienced in both?
I did a lot of ice skating as a kid in Canada, would that be comparable to inlines in the way you skate? If so I’m in trouble, because I never could stay on those blades! But then again the wheels are a lot wider than the blades
On a funny note, this will probably end up being a test of wills between DH & I. You see, he’s quite cautious and thinks skating is dangerous. I agree, and I’m a clutz, but that’s never stopped me before. What’s life without a few broken bones eh?!? LOL! JK.
