Roller derby 1:10:00 intensity: (20:00 @2) + (40:00 @3) + (10:00 @4)

Birthday derby practice! Focused on single-leg left-footed hops, and got better throughout practice! Was good to have one thing I could do in place while I was waiting in line for things.

Also worked on individual blocking in groups! Was fun!!!

Roller derby 1:23:00 intensity: (20:00 @2) + (30:00 @3) + (25:00 @4) + (8:00 @5)

Practice/tryouts! Warmup, then we did an obstacle course where I got to race Nay (buddy for both the race-y things I did tonight!).

And then some scenarios where they put us in lines and we played with just one line vs. a jammer. And then a full scrimmage! I felt like I did some really good blocking, and some persistent/smart jamming! And the last jam of the night I was a pivot (can accept the jammer star) and got passed to, and I got to do like 2-3 laps of a power jam where the other jammer was off the track and my team was playing offense for me, and it was extra super fun :)

Some good things:
* got in front of Kenny (coach who was jamming) after he'd mostly escaped, and trapped him long enough for other blockers to come
* didn't overcommit to one side when I was blocking in a tripod
* was good at calling jams at smart times when I was jamming
9 PM

Roller derby (Skating) 5:00 [5]

Laps!!!!! Was mostly in the lead off the line, but I skated not all the way to the inside for the first few laps, since I wasn't actually officially doing mine and was just there to skate.

Then Nay (my endurance buddy when I go to sunday speedskating, who's also my teammate) sat behind me for a few min, then she went ahead, then I got to focus on trying to catch her, and I passed her on the last lap or so but we basically finished at the same time. I wasn't super duper going all out, but it's been awhile since i've been in a race situation where I get to focus on catching someone just ahead of me, so it was fun! Was very tired after :P
