In Which Our Hero Learns That Biking Muscles and Skating Muscles Are Not The Same

I was going to write a long story with the above title, but then I realized that the title basically sums up the entire story. Also, it doesn't even fit in the title field on this updater.

Thus I shall skip the story, tell the opening bit, then proceed directly to the conclusion.

I went skating yesterday for the first time since April or May. I took the summer off to pursue other activities. Then today I had my first skating lesson today since that same time.

[imagine long story with above title here]

Ow, my knees hurt. Also other leg muscles, but especially my knees. Skating more will help though; I just need to get used to using these muscles and joints again....

Oomph, I know the feeling. Swerve and I went a couple weeks ago and after not skating for 5 months or so I was all kinds of sore, especially the feet. And we only skated about an hour. And what I do isn't really "skating" it's more "meandering around the ice".
Of course it didn't help that they didn't have any more skates in my size so I had to go a size up. I really need to buy a pair and have them fitted and all that good stuff.
