Skating in China
On my quest to find an exercise that suits me, I’ve done swimming, excessive walking, badminton (I still play, it’s great), and I even bought a pair of skates, or ‘roller blades’, if you will.
I used to skate back in the UK, I played street hockey for a while when I was around 10, and then got into aggressive skating going up and down ramps, jumping on rails and all that dangerous cool looking stuff. I did it on and off for around 10 years until I smashed my tail-bone trying a trick and the fear of repeating that pain made me too nervous to try many things. I was never very good, but I enjoyed it, so when my friend said she wanted to start skating, I was eventually convinced to join her.
