Derby Practice, Sunday December 27th

I took another hard backwards fall during Sunday’s derby practice. It seems to be a pattern with pack skating – it takes everything I have to just keep up with the pack, so when I try to do something else (sprint ahead, zigzag laterally), I fall. Dexter and Bunnie were very supportive and encouraging, but I really need to work on my basic skills so I’m not so far behind everyone else. I especially need to work on skating in proper derby stance, so I don’t fall backwards if I get off balance. At least my tailbone doesn't hurt as much this week as it did last week -- I took it easy last night, and feel mostly better by today.

I do need to look into getting one of those tailbone protectors, however, if I'm going to keep falling on my ass. B)

Yes get the protector or you could strap a big pillow on!

LOL! Strapping on a big pillow has been suggested! B)

Or you could, you know, STOP FALLING ON YOUR ASS.
Just sayin'.

That, indeed, is the better strategy. icespark said confidently that by the time I get my tailbone protector, I won't be falling so much any more. Here's hoping she's right. B)

Where do you get a tailbone protector?

Online somewhere, probably. Been meaning to ask the Circle City Socialites, since a few of them use one...

hee! We moved to a wood-floor practice area, and I haven't fallen again yet. B)

Not falling = good

Definitely! I'm working on my derby stance so when I do fall, I fall forward onto my protective gear, which doesn't hurt.
