On Sunday I went to a local high school parking lot to see if I could actually skate. Was the first time I tried since my TIA event 2 months ago. Set up some cones at 7.5 foot centers and put on my pads. Stepped on my board and started pushing around. Didn't seem to have much problem with balance. Ran some cones and made several clean passes. Wasn't pretty or fast but I stayed on the board. Closed it up to 6 foot centers and was able to take 5-6 runs knocking down 1-3 cones each run. Gotta work on several things like foot placement, my pumping action, and maybe getting something with a shorter wheelbase. But, I'm BACK BABY! WHOOHOO!!!!

Going to start push commuting to work a couple times a week and then start looking at ditches in the area.

Congrats to you. Those doctors don't know everything. They're still practicing too. You can do it!
