Week 10 of Trang's Skating Diary

Week 10
Weekend Beginning July 13

It's about three months since I started learning this sport. Kathie once offered to show me to her favourit skating route in Venice Beach when I am ready to do so. I decided to go with her on Thursday night(July 14th).

As mentioned to you on my last note, I was completely off my skates for about two weeks. I took my skates to Manhattan Beach bike trail on Wednesday afternoon to skate. It was a nice warm summer afternoon. The trail is crowded with people who 're biking, skating and running. When I started rolling, I felt like I have ever been on skates before. I legs didn't want to move. I was scare to take my skate off the ground. I took me 45 minutes to get control and warmup on my skates. I skated very slow and my legs was sored and tired. However, It was a nice time to wake up my ankles, knees to practice and prepare for the trip with Kathie.

On Thursday, Kathie and I agreed to meet at Venice Beach pier at 6 PM. I parked right on Washington street and walked to the pier. I put on my skates and started rolling around while waiting for Kathie. It was fun to skate with Kathie. She knows everything about this place. I have been biking on this trail with my family. However, skating on the same trail will be a different experience. I realized that I missed a lot of things by just passing by the area on my bike. There are a lot of fun places that I can stop and hang out. We skated for more than 2 hours and I don't know how many miles that we skated. We started from Venice Beach Pier toward Santa Monica. We stoped near the parking lot of the old Bay Watch movie set and skated back. We skated slow, enjoyed the scenery and sharing laughs. It was a very nice workout.
