Opposites 1: THE RAD

Had a skate date with Chalen! It was his first time out in over a week. I really missed him. We were almost totally alone on the ice on Wednesday, aside from two women, a couple of hockey players, and a kiddo. At one point, we really were the only ones on the whole rink! It was nice, because we had a lot of room to move around and goof around.

We danced together a lot, holding each other at arm's length, as skate-dancers do. Tres romantique!

He also took me for a run! We held each others' arms and he zoomed me all over the rink, because I wanted to know what it felt like to go fast. He gave me some pointers, but I spent the whole time looking down at my feet (not wholly bad, as it gave me a view of what our feet look like doing it, but I have no idea how fast I was going because I was concentrating so hard on our feet! But it felt like real speed! When he took me backwards, I lost my footing and almost collapsed on us both.

He helped me really figure out some of my struggles in moving backwards, too. I can go backwards fairly easily, but have trouble keeping the momentum and going back more than a few feet at a time. That was a tough exercise! Lots of new muscles! I felt that after session :D

At the end of the date, we walked over to the campus (the rink is right near), and chilled out by the pond and talked for an hour or so before our rides came for us. It was therapeutic. I'm really glad to get to know him better, inch by inch.
