    Hier vind je inline skate lessen voor volwassenen

    Doe maar gek, dan doe je al gewoon genoeg 😉Vandaag een post in het Nederlands.

    Week 7 Why one leg rollin’ makes you a better skater (and how to do it)

    Sounds a kind of strange, but in the same way as the one-leg-standing-like-a-crouching-tiger-hidden-dragon-girl (or boy) can make you a better skater. Only, we have two legs….and being on them both is making you more stable. Being nice and stable is way more fun then wiggling on one leg. And because we like being happy and […]

    Week 6: the best investments for starting inline rollerblading

    I’m not even trying to deny that I am a shopaholic, because I am! Not that you should be proud of something like that. But it’s better to be honest about it. So my new out of control “hobby” called Inline Skating, stimulated my senses to spend money again. And now for real: I didn’t […]

    Week 4 What do you need to succeed?

    Yes, my name is Mrs. Faber. But you can better call me Mrs. Stubborn or even better, Mrs. Impatient. When I started my inline skate adventure last year, I really thought, “oh yeah, I’m really going to rock this sh*t in no time. Haha, so you can also may call me Mrs Unbelievable. And with […]

    Week 2 Becoming Skatewise: A great journey of repeating and adapting.

    As a Dutch person, you surely know about the famous artist Vincent van Gogh. I’m confident that if I asked someone in a random foreign city about him, there would be at least a glimmer of recognition. This recognition comes from his well-known paintings like “Sunflowers” and “Starry Night.” His art, marked by expression, courage, […]

    If inline skating was just striding up and down a beautiful patch of asphalt, it could be pretty easy. And boring! Yes, because what’s wrong with a little challenge and excitement in you life? Nothing much – if I may say – when you’re surviving and your skin stays put on the same place where […]

    One month along: best things I’ve learned so far

    I hardly dare say it. But a month ago I thought it might be easy to pick up inline skating. How hard could it be? I’ve done this before! Only forgotten ‘a bit’ that this was ages ago (25 years, ouch 😕) and those wheels sometimes seem to have a mind of their own. “Where […]

    Are you doing OK honey?” and other weird comments I get just rollerblading”

    Imagine you are in the gym doing your best. You’ve only been there for a month and you’re getting a hang of it. Occasionally you still have some trouble with the settings of the devices and you can only grab the smallest weights. Then some guy comes up to you. He is not sporty at […]

    Why not running like the other moms? Or doing yoga for my stress relief? And isn’t going to the gym a better workout to get in shape? My first post on my brand new blog can’t be about anything other than “what on earth was I thinking buying my inline skates“? Fun At least, I […]
