haven't been roller skating in years (and years and years.. oh wow I feel old!)
is it the ones that you put on over your shoes? or a boot?
you can get "Off Ice Skates" that look like roller blades but cooler and act like Ice Skates do so that Ice Skaters can pratice with no ice - always wanted to try a pair. Mind you the likes of T&D make it look so easy!
I can go forward and just about get round corners on ice skates but can't go backwards or any fancy stuff. Broke the pointy bit of my elbow about 10 years ago when another skater knocked me over - the guys in the hospital said "Do NOT put your hands out if you fall over, relax as you fall if you can, becaue you get less injuries if you hit the (ground) ice when your body is relaxed"
hope you are ok? was it fun?
