I headed out rollerblading at 4:36 i think, and got back around 6:20. I only had time for one big lap and three small laps (14 miles total.) I had the bright idea of making a pad of toilet paper and attaching it to the sore spot on my ankle with a wrappy bandage. Unfortunately the spot was still sore while i was rollerblading, and i'm not sure if the pad made it worse, or if i would have been totally screwed without it :)

Having the wrist weights changes the dynamics of a lot of songs. There were several songs where i was skating relatively sedately but waving my arms around a lot. However it seems like i must be doin it rong if i'm rollerblading and feeling a burn in my arms but not my legs :)

The one advantage of going rollerblading at these times is of course that i actually get to see the sunset. I wonder if it would be a bad idea to bring my camera along while rollerblading? I wonder if it would be a bad idea to do so while also using the wrist weights? :)

Also, doing push-ups right after getting back from rollerblading is a bad idea. I had to spend awhile picking all the carpet crap off my chest when i was done =P I'll have to think of something else to do to warm down (which shelleycat claims i need to do if i'm not going to strain more muscles.)

Is the sore spot the blister you've been talking about? If so, have you tried various types of socks to see if certain types/materials work better?

No, it's the spot on my ankle that got sore and swollen. Shelley said it was a bone bruise.
