So I have learned snowboarding at 36, how about inline skating at 37?
So as some of you already know, I have taken up snowboarding last year at 36 years of age
: ) This year I got to practice a bit more and hopefully next year will be even better.
Winter sports however can be enjoyed for a only a few short months where I live so I am thinking of giving inline skating a try (ie. rollerblading as the brand goes?) I need some fitness activity during the week, which I can do after work or early in the morning and it should be min prep. I used to run but no soft surface running possible where I live and I don't want to ruin my knees by running on asphalt or concrete. I already ride my road bike few times a week, mainly on the weekends, as riding a bike in the inner city is not very safe here in Istanbul and I need to get out of the city = more time needed, not possible in the week days.
I see youngsters inline skating near my house (about 5 mins walk) at an inline skating park and they have a beginner's area. I am thinking of giving it a try as I did rollerskate for a while when I was 9-10 years old?
Other than wearing as much protection as possible, any tips from experienced inline skaters here? I am big an heavy as mentioned in the snowboarding thread but I think I will probably pick up quicker than most people who have never done it as a child.
i live in a country with a batshit crazy president and no, english is not my first language
