Happy December, everyone! Are you suffering from too much good cheer? Canâ€™t handle another frackinâ€™ repeat of Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer? Family fun time freaking you out? Iâ€™ve got the cure! Come to Raw Meat, and roller skate out all your stress. What could be more relaxing than two hours of sweat, drills, thrills, and even a spill or two?
Raw Meat will meet at Thunderbird Community Centre (2311 Cassiar St., Vancouver) on Dec. 4 and 11 from 5pm to 7pm, and then take a short break over the holidays, and weâ€™ll be back Saturday, January 8. Our sessions are $7, and full safety gear is required.
Off-Skate Fitness Challenge
Itâ€™s been pretty depressing with the rain these days. It sucks not being able to roller skate outside. But, winter is the perfect time to cross-train and build up your general fitness so that you are stronger and more resistant to injury when the sun comes out again. Iâ€™d like to challenge everyone to hit the gym, go for a run, or just do some squats, lunges and pushups in front of the TV. If you need some inspiration, D.A. DaRuckus has found a great site for roller derby fitness:
Check out their partner workoutâ€”it looks like it could lead to even more cold-weather fun… Umâ€¦what was I saying? Oh, yes, fitness! The more you cross-train, the better you are going to be on the track. So, put in a couple of good workouts this week, and then come to Raw Meat and show off all your hard work.
See you Saturday!
PS: Random Trivia of the week: Did you know there is a National Museum of Roller Skating? There is! Itâ€™s in Nebraska. Neat-O!
