Getting in Shape, Even If it Kills My Rollerblades

May 24, 2001

Well, I guess that's what I get for buying a $45 pair of rollerblades. When I went skating today (or, tried to go skating today), the plastic adjuster strip broke. I decided to jog instead.

I'm not built for jogging. Everything below my knees hurts right now. And yes, I stretched beforehand. Which leads to my dilemma -- I want to continue getting in shape, but I don't want to spend any more money on rollerblades. I really don't want to spend much money at all, now that I got this month's credit card bill in the mail, but that's another story.

So there it stands -- Rock, Me, Hard Place. Dammit.
