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....
