Piala Walikota Solo 2017 – Lesson Learned: What It Cost and What Advice I Have To Give

I didn’t know what I didn’t know. That’s the easiest way to describe the entire experience of what it took to compete in Piala Walikota Solo 2017 last month. I had no idea what it would cost – not just financially, but emotionally, physically…the time it took, the mental exhaustion, it was a crazy ride, but in the end, I’m proud that I did it. This post is simply my way of giving back to all of the gals who haven’t competed.

Preparation:

I knew I’d have to train hard. It took a lot of discipline. I had to run my own warm up, decide what tricks to work on, etc. When I started, I would simply go in and work on tricks I thought I might use in the routine, specifically working on holding the tricks for long periods of time to build up my conditioning.

FAQ : About Skate Lessons

Check out some of the most common asked questions here. It may answer your questions or help you to have better understanding.

Q1: Why do I need skate lessons, I can learn on my own, right?

A1: This is one recreational activity that you definitely do not want to learn on your own. Learning on your own will only lead to bad habits and unsafe skating. Even worse than teaching yourself, is to have a friend teach you who also taught themselves. My advice is to take professional lessons from the beginning and then practices what you learn on your own, this is the only real path to becoming a good all round safe skater.

Q2: What should I bring to my first skate lesson?

A2: Inline skate with a brake fitted, a full set of safety pads protecting your knees, elbows and wrists. No safety pads, no class. Please also take the Indonesia sun seriously, skate classes are a lot of fun but they are also very tough workout. Bring water, wear a cap and use sunscreen. Children under 14 must wear a helmet.

To New Skaters, Here’s What I’d Say …….

Processed with VSCO

I haven’t had a lot to say lately about skating. As a matter of fact, my last blog post about skating was in April 2016. I’ve noticed lots of new-ish people in my skating world, lately. And there are things I keep wanting to tell them. Like, sit down creepily close and say in a conspiratorial voice tell them.

In some of them, I see bits of old me. The timid, awkward, and skinny me that wasn’t very good at skating and knew it. The me that wanted nothing more but to be good, yet always felt a little stupid.

Old me is really craving this conversation. So, for the bits of her in everyone, here’s what I’d say: Continue reading

Target to Achieve: Balance My Life !

Halo all, I’m back after a  break from logging into my blog. I have been pretty busy with my final project. uuuhh

Seems like i am constantly in search of some way to make my life matter. Hooosh hoooosh hooosh! Mencoba menyeimbangkan waktu yang cuma 24 jam agar pas untuk semua hal dalam sehari rasanya susah sekali. Saya sampai detik ini sering kali merasa belum bisa bersikap adil untuk semuanya. Untuk saya sendiri, untuk keluarga, untuk pacar, untuk skripsi, untuk sahabat, untuk teman-teman, untuk kegiatan inline saya di Inline Skate Semarang dsb. Kamu pernah merasa seperti itu juga gag? Errrrrrr

Bagaimanapun juga waktu gag akan nambah jadi 25 jam dalam sehari kalo saya ngeluh. Saya gag boleh berhenti bergerak, karena setidaknya jika saya terus bergerak maka saya akan memastikan bahwa saya sedang tidak menganggur. Menganggur akan membuat saya merasa bersalah telah menyia-nyiakan hari yang telah diberikan kepada saya. Namun begitu saya juga harus tahu kapan harus berhenti sejenak untuk bernafas dari semua rutinitas saya. Ya kan? Continue reading
