With the July ollie goal accomplished and in the past, I felt a little strange today. Not gonna lie. I just kinda felt… off.
Also, my legs were KILLING me. I joined Nia for a track workout last night. She’s training for a half marathon and signed up for a free “speed workout.” It was a blast to go run fast, can’t remember the last time I did that.
But combine that with all the ollies I’ve been doing, and my calves were ultra-sore today.
So I took a break from both ollies and from early morning sessions today. Maybe part of why I felt off, I had been so consistently getting up to skate in the morning over the past couple weeks.
Whatever it was, a dusk surfskate session on the Goodwin Place Peeler was the remedy. The summer sky was still glowing after the sun had set, and the moon had just risen. A perfect setting for some smooooooth carving. The dream.
I decided to film some frontside carves and check out my form. With the moon out, I wanted to get all artsy. I set my phone up in slo-mo mode and something pretty sick happened.
The sound of the video in slo-mo is pretty dang close to the sound of a crashing wave! Have a listen:
I think it does at least, and ya can’t take that away from me!
