DAY 13: It has been more than 2 months since I last used my skates. Everyday it was either snowing or raining and just always too cold and wet to do anything. I really missed skating but when I went today I decided that I will quit this hobby. 
I think roller skating just isn't the sport for me. When I went today I forgot almost everything what I learnt last year. I wasn't feeling that well today or generally in the mood for skating. The place where I used to practice is closed now and all the roads in my hometown are way too rough and have many holes. At the moment it's just not fun at all

DAY 12: Today I had a bad day. Actually, my whole week could have been better. Even skating wasn't really fun. I just kept thinking how I don't make any progress and how boring it gets when you always skate in the same location - as I already mentioned I could not find many smooth streets here so I only have very few options where I can skate. And it was already very cold so I feel like skating season is almost over for me.

DAY 11: Balancing on railways - Me and my best friend went skating today and tried some weird things on these (inactive) railways.  She took this beautiful picture of me and I am sharing it with you all. I would tag her but sadly she doesn't have any social media.

DAY 10: Today I was walking a lot in my skates. It's still a mystery to me how to walk on your toe stops but if the floor is rough enough you can just walk like they're normal shoes, haha. 
I also tried slalom but with a lot of space between the hurdles. I still had to stop awkwardly every few seconds 'cause I can't turn so fast. 
Lastly I wanted to skate without looking down at the ground the whole time but I immediately lost my balance when I looked up/away while skating.

DAY 9: Nothing special today. I tried backwards skating but it's still a mystery to me how to move and not fall. Apart from that it was a cold and rainy day so I could not skate that long

DAY 8: My perspective. Today was pretty boring, the floor was wet and full with leaves and branches. I could barely skate. I also fell down but it didn't hurt at all (luckily I wear protectors). Also, Moxi is holding a photo contest and I'm thinking about participating. But as far I know it's only for people who work for moxi so... #skating #rollerskating #rollerskates #skater #sports #rolling #wheels #fall #day8 #freetime #fun
DAY 7: What, a new post without a month long break in between? Amazing! Today I practised stepping over obstacles, turning and skating curves, and skating with less bend knees. Yesterday I said that I can't see any progress but today I felt like I have finally improved! I wish I could skate everyday and whereever I want, then I would be a pro in no time!

DAY 6: Hello again. I was traveling, then I got sick and when I was ready to skate again it only rained...But here I am. There is no real progress except that I feel safer on skates. And there was a hole somewhere and I didn't know how to stop so I had to turn really fast so I guess that's another "skill" I developed. I wish I could skate daily but I just don't have the time and there are not many nice places around me. But I'm gonna keep rolling!

DAY 5: I found a nice street in my town where I could practise some more skating. I don't have any cool footage except this short video but it was really fun and I learnt a lot. It's still hard to stand and look up 'cause I'm always completely focused on the floor and feel like falling down everytime I stand with straight legs and look anywhere else than my feet. But that's only my fifth time on skates so...I actually managed to not fall down and I'm proud that I can always catch myself without stumbling too much

DAY 4: I'm still alive. After my last post I have been on vacation for quite a long time (without my roller skates...sad I know) and when I came back I was way too busy to go Skating again. Today I finally had the time to skate but unfortunately I can't go the roller skating rink and as you know the ground outside is too rough for my current wheels. That means I'm skating in my house again and since this is first time after more than a month I'm more stumbling than skating... #skating #rollerskating #rollerskates #skater #sports #rolling #wheels #summer
DAY 3: Yes, I forgot to wear protection...anyways I found a roller skating rink that I am allowed to use. So I skated around a little bit and also fell down (before the video). Luckily I remembered to bend my knees and go down so I didn't hurt myself at all. Also I believe my legs are way too far apart but now I know what I have to improve.

DAY 2: I went outdoor skating for the first time and it was a failure. My wheels are 82 A and I hoped that this would be soft enough for outdoors but it wasn't. After struggling for about an hour I decided to look for smoother ground tomorrow. So I just posed a little bit for photos. A least I didn't fell down today. 
Oh, and I wore protection. Just took it of for the photo
